Dot Kane leading an Elephant Bridge at StoryciseStorycise is Dot’s 30 minute exercise class. The storytelling format adds a fun dimension to a serious workout designed to develop cardiovascular stamina, strength and balance.

It’s a work-out. And a play-out!

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if children never outgrew the joy of movement? We’d become a society of adults that don’t “work out,” we’d “play out!” Storycise instills a natural love of exercise designed to last a lifetime.

Storycise classes are currently offered at Greater LaGrange YMCA and the Dance Center of LaGrange.

Contact Dot to arrange a Storycise class for your own gym, studio, school or parents group.
