Jennifer McCamish, a former Radio City Music Hall Rockette, founded Dancers Shape. The studio, located at 5350 Burnet Road, No. 7, offers low-impact classes that combine facets of ballet, yoga, Pilates and circuit training. The workouts are appropriate for all fitness levels and help improve posture, reduce body fat, and increase muscle tone, strength and flexibility.
The studio also works with NFL football players in the off-season. Read my story about that here.
