Guh I'm at The Second Line: Bounce Fitness Mardi Gras Brass Band Celebration!

Join Marissa J, Ambassador of Bounce Fitness this January as we gear up for the green, gold and purple extravaganza.  Mardi Gras would be nothing without the live bayou funk sounds of brass music accompanied by the tantric "jass" Creole dancing.

This month learn stylized moves and choreography, while getting fit to the sounds of local NOLA brass bands.

Spread the word to your friends-n-nem:  Bounce Fitness is seeking to assist companies, birthday parities, Mardi Gras crews, and weekend gatherers teaching second line dancing for Fat Tuesday enjoyment! Cost is $25/person.  Minimum number of participants is 5.  Email Marissa at
