    Christine can make the most inept dancer look competent! She breaks down the moves into little pieces then builds upon them so by the end of class we are able to perform a complete dance and look pretty good doing it. Added bonus is a great workout, burning tons of calories!

    Thanks Gay! You have great moves...just let loose!

    I recently attended a Red Hot Dance Fitness training from Christine, and she was professional, fun and knowledgeable. Even though I have been an instructor of several years, I learned so much! It was nice to hear different perspectives and learn fresh new material. I walked away with several new "tricks" in my teaching tool kit. Christine's program and training covered the history of dance fitness, safety, progressions/regressions, the concept of "layering", verbal & nonverbal cueing, and so much more! There is a good balance between the format's structure and the freedom to add your own style. I am excited for what the future holds for RHDF.

    Thank you Jennaya! You are a talented instructor and I look forward to dancing with you more

    I had the pleasure of interviewing Christine on my show A Matter of Balance on FTNS, World's First Fitness radio. We feature inspiring stories and helpful information and Christine delivered on both accounts.

    She has created fitness that's fun and effective with her Red Hot Dance Fitness program and is also someone who leads by example in her own life.

    Response by Christine Defilippis on May 28, 2013

    It was such a pleasure to be a guest! Thank you for the opportunity and your kind words.
