It’s the same old song and dance when it comes to working out. Start big. End with a fizzle.

Shuffle step it up with Taprobics. 

Taught by dancer Hillary Ayn Ryan, the fun, hour-long class combines basic tap moves with an old-school cardio workout. Start with a quick warm-up then move on to easy-to-follow combinations set to pop tunes, followed by toning, abs, and a cooldown. Kick ball change your way to stronger feet and leg muscles, not to mention a sharper brain (you have to concentrate to hear your steps).

Try out the first class in sneakers or borrow a spare pair of tap shoes from Ryan before buying your own (she’ll tell you where to score a pair for ten bucks). If you fancy yourself more of a Broadway-style hoofer, Ryan also teaches regular tap dancing.

What are you waiting for?

Tap that ass.
