But don't get it twisted! Even with all that professional experience Tya can still get down with the get down! In a class taught by Tya, expect to get your life, OK?! In this class we dance like nobody is watching, we turn the music up, we let our bodies catch the rhythm of the beat, and we leave the outside world at the door. Its simply an added bonus that we burn a ton of calories and get in a fabulous workout at the same damn time!!!
