Swing! into Shape logo
Robert Royston, who is currently featured in the Broadway musical Swing! will teach a weekly Cardio Swing class, at Crunch Fitness. This exercise routine lets the participants aerobicize to the tune of Big Band swing music along with music from the hit show's soundtrack. Cardio Swing begins with a basic intro to swing dance including basic jig walks, charleston kicks and shim-sham moves. Repeating and adding-on more steps, the initial combination is expanded on, culminating in a complete swing combination.

Robert Royston, with his partner Laureen Baldovi (who is also featured in Swing!), has won more U.C.W.D.C. Master's Division championships than any other couple in the history of country dance (including the '95-'98 World Championships), and has also won their Star Award as Favorite Male Instructor. Mr. Royton has also been featured at the Olympics Games in Atlanta and on TV and film.

Cardio Swing will be offered every Saturday from 10:30AM-11: 45AM at Crunch Fitness located at 1109 Second Avenue at 59th Street. For additional information, or to take a class, please contact Dayna Crawford at Crunch (212) 993-0300. The Broadway hit Swing! is currently running at the St. James Theatre located at 246 West 44th Street.
