Are you someone who loves dance or is wanting to get involved in fitness but aren’t a big fan of extreme or complex exercises? Well, look no further! In today’s blog, we’ll be covering a dance-based fitness in Hamilton that is ideal for anybody, no matter your age, ability or mobility level, or fitness level. If you enjoy exercise at a moderate level, especially in the form of dance, then read on!

Nia Dance Inspiring Fitness at All Levels

A worldwide-known fitness and dance sensation, Nia Dance is a holistic movement art that is able to cater to every individual and their needs. Whether you’re an athlete with high mobility, a student who wants to get in shape, or a stay-at-home mum who needs a new activity to wind down, Nia Dance can meet any expectations you have and help you reach any fitness goal you set!

Nia Dance incorporates a range of tools within its dance environment and movements in order to be so accessible to everyone and be able to provide a vast range of benefits to meet your health and fitness goals. Using specially designed music, carefully picked environments, and uniquely crafted movements, Nia Dance is unlike any other fitness or dance.


The movements of Nia Dance were made to be easily adaptable and non-impact, and are not required to be performed exactly as your instructor does. On top of this, you’re encouraged to perform the way your body wants you to, even adding your own personal style to the dance. This means you can perform at a moderate level and still receive the joyous benefits Nia Dance has to offer. 

The Nia Dance music helps push and motivate you during your workout, and provides feelings of encouragement and positivity. Binaural frequencies and specifically chosen instruments are essential to what makes the music so effective, also helping your organ and cognitive function, and focus.

Dance NZ and Classic Nia Classes For Everybody to Enjoy

Dance NZ provides five amazing classes, each differing from one another in terms of motions and design but still giving you all the benefits of Nia Dance. For moderate dance and fitness, Classic Nia is the most suitable class. This class is perfect for experienced dancers but also ideal for anybody looking for a medium-level dance routine to participate in, no matter your specific abilities.

Your Dance NZ instructor, Belinda Goodwin, guides you through her HYBRID-style courses on Zoom so you can participate from the comfort of your own home and in-person classes at various Hamilton and Raglan locations. Class replays are also available for purchase on the Dance NZ website and can be viewed for 24 hours, as many times as you like, after buying.


Both choices, online classes, and class replays are ideal for those who like working out alone and in their own space, don’t have enough time in their schedule to attend in person, or are unable to leave the house due to injury or illness, lack of transportation, or other reasons. In-person classes are great to get a deeper level of social connection and practice Nia Dance in a new environment.

Nia Dance doesn’t require any specific equipment, such as resistance bands, weights, or even shoes, so you can work out anytime and anyplace whether that’s outside in the afternoon or the evening in your house. This makes it easy to plan Nia workouts whenever you like, for however long you like.
