Best Face Masks for Dance, Exercise, and Everyday

Whether you are purchasing a mask to dance, exercise, or even simply walk around the grocery store in, you want a mask that is going to keep you safe and comfortable, but also be flexible and allow you to move without falling off. 

When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, I grabbed the easiest mask I could find from my favorite store, Target (girl, you know it's your fave too). After wearing the mask a few times, I quickly realized that even though I bought the mask out of convenience it wasn't the best mask for being active in or even to wear day to day. 

After testing out several different masks, I have put together a list of my 3 favorite masks. I want you to know that I was not compensated in any way for these reviews and have bought all of these full price.

I grew up training in ballet and was a regular customer of Bloch. Bloch has been around since...

4 Ways to Become a Better Dancer

Want to be a better dancer? You may be thinking that the title "good dancer" is only reserved for those who've been dancing since before they could talk, but science has a few hints about what can make someone —anyone who's willing to implement these steps— a great dancer. Yes, even someone with ZERO dance experience before they attended a Dirtylicious class.

 1. Consistency 

Becoming a better dancer requires muscle memory, and muscle memory requires a lot of repetition through practice. Even if you'd never taken a dance class before attending Dirtylicious®, you can become better!

So don’t overthink it – set a goal to come regularly, then make some room in your schedule to attend a class the same days and times each week. Literally schedule it into your phone's calendar with a notification! Take it a step further by dancing in your front room or getting in front of your mirror and practicing the combo...

Dirtylicious® University - Cycle 3

And just like that, Dirtylicious® University cycle three is in the books!
 
Dirtylicious® has been steadily growing and we were lucky enough to have our first training day held at one of Utah's largest gyms: the VASA Fitness in Orem. This came as a result of the success of Erica (one of the Dirtylicious Co-Founder) and our current instructors whose classes have been rapidly growing week after week.
 
This was by far our most diverse group of instructors with some attendees having lots of group fitness experience and others having none at all. Dirtylicious® is a beautiful thing that way, it's not about being the best dancer and is instead all about instilling confidence into your class with real dance and sexy choreography. And being willing to get better slowly over time is the secret ingredient to becoming a better dancer.
 
We couldn't be more proud of this group right here and can't wait to see each of them grow a...

Dirtylicious® University - Cycle 1

It was kinda like having a baby... or twelve babies. But the first Dirtylicious® University training is in the books!

After 9 months (maybe really even 8 years) of working, developing, writing, recording and planning the day had finally come. Our first Dirtylicious® University Training day.

For months before this, we had been pulling all-night shifts getting it all done and we left our whole hearts on the line. And honestly, it was more amazing than we ever could've planned. Not because we are the most brilliant, or talented people, we are admittedly very far from that.

It's all because of these amazing instructors who came to learn, shared their stories, who believed in us, and in this dream of changing lives through real dance, and sexy choreography. They are the ones who took all of it in and are making it happen and we couldn't be more proud to set them free and watch them do amazing things as they plan to start changing a lot of lives....
