Meet Chris! A 500 class club member, lover of Just Burn (and Just Sweat) classes, and JDR Instructor Kelly’s cousin, Chris has been a loyal Just Dance Roanoke member since the summer of 2014. He’s proof that, yes, men enjoy JDR classes too! You can always find Chris socializing in the lobby before and after class with the many friends he’s met at JDR.
Who or what brought you to your first class at JDR?
My wonderful cousin Kelly McDow a.k.a. Pepper. She had been asking me for a year to come try a Just Burn class.
What is your favorite JDR event you’ve attended?
JDR’s 3rd Birthday Party and Party in Pink.
Favorite piece of JDR swag you own?
The first JDR thing I ever had – a white Just Dance Roanoke tank.
Favorite song/genre to dance to in class?
I lean towards hip-hop but anything with a good beat that I can get into: rap, electronic, retro-rock, Michael Jackson…
Anything else you’d like the JDR family to know about you?
Going to the studio for a Burn class, I had no idea what Zumba was and I couldn’t dance. I started in the back row with a two step and now I’ve moved to the front row. I’ve gained a lot of confidence dancing at JDR. The awesome instructors and participants are like family and constantly encourage and support one another.
