Boss Chick Dance Workout Is Coming to Boston

The cardio dance workout is holding its first Boston event April 23.

Ever wanted to channel your inner Beyoncé? (Hint: The correct answer is yes.) On April 23, you can.

On that day, at the Jeanette Neil Dance Studio, Boston will welcome the Boss Chick Dance Workout for the first time. The women-only class combines techniques from hip hop, dance hall, and Afrobeats dance to create a full-body workout that doubles as great training for your social life. The company claims a single class can burn as many as 1,000 calories.

The inaugural Boston session will be taught by the boss herself, founder Simone Sobers. Sobers trained with Alvin Ailey and Netherlands Dance Theater, and is now a successful choreographer and the artistic director of two companies: Simone Sobers Dance and Sobers & Godley.

“There are so many young women in Boston that I think would really enjoy the workout,” Sobers says. “The workout is really just about empowering women, helping them feel good about their bodies, their self esteem. I think it’s a good fit for a college town.” (She adds, though, that women of all ages take the classes.)

Boss Chick is already a fixture in cities all over the country, but for now, its Boston presence will be limited to the April event. Sobers says the goal is to get local instructors certified so it can become a more regular occurrence in the future. As such, the 10 a.m. class will be followed by instructor training from 12:30 to 6 p.m.
