Employee of the Season!
Eduard Pancham
With nearly 5,000 people coming through the studios on a busy day, we found out pretty quickly that we needed a top-notch Maintenance Manager to keep things looking great, and working perfectly. Enter "Eddie". A multi-talented whirlwind of a guy, whenever you see a new dance floor, improved fixtures, or are simply enjoying the fact that RG still feels new after 25 years, he's the guy to thank. Throw him some love next time you're in...if you can catch him.

Hooray for Graham and Ashley!  
graham and ashley
One year ago, in this very spot, we announced the impending nuptials of our own Graham McCarty, and his lovely fiancee Ashley King. Well, they went ahead and did it! Graham and Ashley got hitched this past Sunday, September 8th, on the beach in lovely Ocean City on the Jersey shore, and we have witnesses! Congrats, you crazy kids!


Happy End-of-Summer!, everyone. It's been quite a year for us, launching 10 new studios here at 520 six months ago, and following it up with our busiest summer yet. I want to give a shout-out to everyone who voted in this worst headshot before and after summer's "Worst Headshot" competition, and and great big thank-you to Jenna P Photography who did some wonderful work with our winner! Take a look at the results, and if you have a headshot that's getting a little out dated, give that lady a call! Oh, and be sure to stop by Cafe Oasis and grab one of our new T-shirts. Great new designs and styles, starting at just 12 bucks! That's cheaper than going naked, if you factor in the public exposure charges.....

Be well-
Dancehall Aerobics
Caribbean Moves to Keep You Fit!

adina dancehall  Adina considers herself more of a "fitness guru" than a dancer, but with her Caribbean background (her mother being Guyanese and father being Jamaican) she has always had a love of "Dancehall" Jamaican music, she decided to combine both fitness and Island rhythms and came up with "Dancehall Aerobics", a fun workout that combines the rhymes of dancehall music and the dancehall moves to make a fun, party of a  workout. Dancehall aerobics has been gaining popularity in NYC with many gyms requesting to feature Adina's classes.

Each class starts with a low impact dancehall workout which consists of slow foot work and stretching. As the class progress the training increase.Students will learn movements, routines, choreography and get a total body workout.

Adina uses Ripley-Grier because of our relaxed environment (she calls it a "Caribbean feel", which we take as a huge compliment!) and, of course, our professional and friendly staff. You can learn more about Dancehall Aerobics and Adina's classes at her website:
