MISSION STATEMENT: “Historic Backus Community Center, the heart of International Falls, where all generations celebrate arts, culture, recreation, wellness and life-long learning”


Have you ...
ever tried to get through a workout tape and couldn’t?
LOVE the idea of weights –
but HATE the reality??
Are structured exercise classes just not your thing?

Want to “DANCE” your buns and thighs off??
Want to “LOSE” those extra pounds???
Want to feel strong and fit while you dance those old winter blues away??


If you are 18 or 100 – or 101 – shape, size, age or your current level of fitness will not hold you back – AND you do not need fancy clothes to DANCE along with “Richard Simmons” and SWEAT to the oldies.

Bring your friends or join your neighbors at Backus Community Center for a low-impact workout. Great music – lots of fun – and even if you have never danced before – You can do this!!!

Learn at your own speed. Step out and rest at any time as your strength grows and you lose those pounds.
If you are already in good shape but don’t like to exercise alone, come join us.

Hey – sometimes you just want to have fun!!
