Unleash the dancer in you. Experience doesn’t matter – this is all about expression, movement and the magic of music.
For 10 years, Gotta Dance has been one of the most popular events at Canyon Ranch, with guests returning year after year for the pure joy of it. Fitness staff and visiting professionals offer inspired classes for all levels. Jump into hip hop, ballet, jazz, Bollywood, Broadway routines and much more. You can even get onstage for the grand finale – a guest performance that knocks the socks off the audience every time.
Some guests call this their “Dance Camp” and swear it takes them back to childhood. Others say it’s about overcoming fears. Many see it as living a lifelong dream. Everyone calls it fun, exhilarating and unforgettable!
This exciting anniversary event will be led by talented Ranch staff and three returning guests who have made Gotta Dance a perennial favorite:
Russell Warfield. A professional dancer, choreographer, actor and singer, Russell has performed on Broadway, in national and international touring companies and VH-1 videos. He coaches and teaches dance and gymnastics to college athletes and USA national team members.
He’s a wonderful teacher, a superb dancer, and will teach you moves you didn’t know you had in you! Bob Fosse, anyone?
Tracey Katona. She’s been a dancer with prestigious ballet companies and taught at the Princeton Ballet School, Rutgers and Ballet Hispanico in New York. Tracey also teaches Pilates and has worked with LeBron James and Ken Griffey Jr, and other athletes. She helped choreograph the Let’s Move campaign with Michelle Obama, and now she’s dancing with you!
The delightful Tracey loves to teach and spread the joy of dance. Don’t miss her '50s flashback party, poodle skirt and all!
Todd Wilson. A prolific choreographer and founder of Tucson’s BreakOut Studios, an emerging dance and fitness company, Todd has performed in venues from New York to Hollywood to Asia. His instruction, creative direction and choreography have been in demand around the world for Equinox Gyms, Starwood Hotels, Universal Studios, Princess Cruise Lines, the Miss America Pageant and other high-profile clients – it’s your turn to find out why.
Todd’s dynamic personality and dance style make his classes a special treat. You’ll laugh, you’ll shimmy and have a ball!
