Heehee, mine is like that too. Yoga-jazz-interpretive-free dancing-um-er-dancing class. I mean, what makes it hard to pin down is what keeps my easily bored self involved after seven months. My teacher is the same way - of the three teachers in my neighborhood (yes, I am lucky), she does the most strenuous, most varied routines. And lots and lots of free dancing, which I've learned to love.

That's how I landed on belly dancing/kickboxing. With all the dipping, undulating, and kicking about we do, it seems the best fit. And hey, my jeans are loose, so I'm not going to start complaining now!

You're SO right!!!!! How to characterize or describe NIA??? I'm like you and refer to it as my dance class, but it's so much more than that. I love your belly dancing/kickboxing title. I've had classes like that. I've also had yoga/jazz dance classes, and dance tai chi classes, etc.

It is SO cool! I love the freedom it gives to all of us. I have a kind of advanced teacher who has started doing her own mixes, and she has us do lots of free dance.

Nia is so many things. I refer to it as my dance class casually, but it's modern dance and yoga and tai chi and this and that and the other. The variety that makes it so fun also makes it hard to categorize on this site. What do you do?

For me, it depends on how strenuous the class was. Today I classified it as 45 minutes of belly dancing and 15 minutes of kickboxing.
