You want to join the gym, but who can justify the cost these days? Luckily for you, there are all kinds of free and cheap opportunities to get off your ass. Take this Wednesday, for example, where ODC hosts Rhythm & Motion's 30th Anniversary, featuring an all-day dance celebration from 10am-12pm. No one's really working in the interim period between Christmas and New Year's, so again, we ask you: why not get your derriere of the couch and shake it instead?

The all-day dance bash begins with introductory 30-minute Rhythm & Motion Dance Workout Classes to get the heart rate up, followed by Afro-Brazilian, Fusion and Global afternoon classes. Later, ODC hosts a wine and hors d'oeuvres reception, followed by a dance performance by R&M teachers and an all-night DJ dance party to top off the evening.

Schedule of events:

30 min. R&M Dance Workout Classes for Beginners 10am, 11am, 12pm, 1pm, 2pm
All Star R&M Dance Workout Classes 10:30am (Modern Rhythms), 12pm (Fusion Rhythms)
