Move to the music and lose weight by dancing
Start by taking a dance exercise class at a YMCA or health club to find the style of dancing you like and have fun.
By Jay Blahnik, Special to The Times, June 23, 2008
I have been watching a few of these dance shows on television and have been inspired by the contestants' physiques, weight-loss stories and energy. Is dancing really a good way to get into shape? It looks like fun, but is it good exercise?
Darcie, San Diego
Done regularly, yes, dancing can be a great form of exercise. It burns calories, improves coordination, builds stamina and, most important, it's fun. Besides that, dancing is also less likely to get boring than some other activities because there are always new steps to learn and the music is motivating.
Here are some tips to help you get started and make dancing a smart part of your workout program:
- Most YMCAs, health clubs and community centers offer some type of dance exercise program or class. Sample a few types of classes and instructors until you find your favorite style, music and teacher. Classes with a start and end date are best if you want to be at a similar level with the other students, but they may include some type of fee. Classes that are ongoing may require a few weeks of catch-up but are often included in the club or facility membership.
- Don't expect to be a pro in your first session. Part of the fun is learning new steps and being challenged to move your body in new, and possibly unfamiliar, ways. Go into each class with the frame of mind that you are improving your health and having fun, not competing to win a dance contest or be the best in the room.
- Some classes are geared around couples' dancing, such as ballroom. These classes provide a perfect opportunity for you to enjoy the experience with your boyfriend, girlfriend or spouse. If you don't have anyone to take the class with you, don't worry. Many of these types of classes will set you up with a different partner each week -- a great way to meet new people.
- You will likely find your own favorite style of dancing, but don't forget to mix it up. A ballet class is going to work your body differently than a hip-hop, Irish or African dance class, and switching it up is the best way to get health benefits while reducing your risk of injury from overusing the same muscle groups.
- Some dance classes will focus on building muscle endurance and strength, but dancing is mostly cardiovascular. So include additional strength training in your week so that your muscles get strong as well.

THEATER REVIEW | ‘ARIAS WITH A TWIST’
Effigies and Aliens Cavort in a Cross-Dressing Wonderland
By BEN BRANTLEY
Eat your heart out, Madonna. The chanteuses who play Madison Square Garden and football stadiums have never experienced the imaginative heights of spectacle with which Basil Twist surrounds Joey Arias in “Arias With a Twist,” which opened Wednesday night at the newly renovated Here Arts Center.
Mr. Twist is the inspired puppet master who, a decade ago, turned wet pieces of cloth into a Folies Bergère-style corps de ballet in his head-tripping interpretation of Berlioz’s “Symphonie Fantastique,” set in a giant aquarium. Now he returns to the scene of that career-making triumph, the Dorothy B. Williams Theater, to ply his surreal magic on the venerable downtown drag show.
Mr. Arias, a cross-dressing vocalist notable for the weight of his false eyelashes and his gift for replicating the raspy wail of Billie Holiday, returns to New York after doing time in Las Vegas as a mistress of ceremonies for the racy Cirque du Soleil show Zumanity. And while the stage he commands at Here is, in size, but a fraction of the one he played at the New York New York hotel, it cannot be said that he has hit the small time.
That’s because Mr. Twist, along with an accomplished technical team, has whipped up a vast enchanted troupe of effigies — from a marionette supper-club combo to a life-size chorus line of plump, plumed dancers — to back up Mr. Arias’s song stylings. Well, perhaps back up is not quite the way to put it, since Mr. Twist’s creations have a way of stealing the spotlight, even when they’re in the shadows.
This show even has a spotlight that steals the spotlight, a roving disc of illumination that shrinks and expands capriciously, a diva unto itself, before the curtain goes up. (Ayumu Saegusa did the lighting.) There are, in fact, an assortment of curtains, which part and fall and drop teasingly, like Salome’s veils.
Finally they uncover Mr. Arias, looking like the vintage pin-up model Bettie Page in dominatrix mode, strapped to a giant, rotating silver wheel and being probed by ghostly aliens. The script, devised by Mr. Arias and Mr. Twist, uses this very close encounter as a dropping-off point for a series of earthly, and often earthy, adventures.
These include Mr. Arias tumbling through space and landing in a glorious Edenic rain forest; eating a magic mushroom that takes him straight to hell; stalking Manhattan as a 50-foot woman; and, at last, arriving at a cozy little boîte to sing soulfully before being propelled into the dizzying realm of a Busby Berkeley fantasy number.
The apparitions that show up in these locales are often delightful (the blissful marionette jazz ensemble) and sometimes sinister (the giant slithering serpent in the rainforest). Flowers blossom before your eyes; white-gloved hands, ice cream cones and cymbal-banging monkeys float through the air; and what looks like the entire island of Manhattan materializes as a sky-scraping Oz.
Did I mention the rotating wedding cake? And how about those giant dancing devil puppets, which move like Las Vegas chorus boys? Their outsized assets include flailing phalluses, a reminder that though children might find much to revel in here, this is definitely not a kiddie show.
Mr. Arias’s dialogue, delivered in a deadpan mix of little-girl breathlessness and big-girl worldliness, will sound familiar to anyone who’s seen a New York drag show during the last few decades. (“I didn’t even get his phone number,” Mr. Arias sighs after dancing with the devil.) And of course he sings, with varying effectiveness, pop standards (“All by Myself”), acid rock (“Kashmir”), a charming original composition by Alex Gifford (“Jungle of Eden”) and, most memorably, the Holiday standard “You’ve Changed.”
As an actor Mr. Arias is not a seamless illusionist. We’re always aware of the big lug beneath the Joan Crawford maquillage and Thierry Mugler corsets. But in a way, this makes him the perfect escort into Mr. Twist’s wonderland.
Mr. Arias registers as a figure of solid human flesh aching to be transported into a world of celluloid dreams. Costumes and makeup can only take a fellow so far. That’s where Mr. Twist comes in, with a fluid mise-en-scène that allows Mr. Arias — and, vicariously, you and me — to go the distance, all the way over the rainbow.

Heinrich Zille (1858-1929)
"But Zille reminds us of another lesson, that high standards are not the only standards that count. After all, the essence of his pictures was to show how monotonous life would be if we only cared about what’s great in the world and not about everything local and particular and even sometimes untranslatable that actually makes life rich. When Berliners celebrate Zille’s birthday, this is what they’re celebrating."
