Austin’s Body Drop Hosts Second Stomping Grounds

Everything starts with a passion. For Ty Denton, this passion is dance, and it started at a young age. Watching him perform, it’s obvious he conveys Body Drop’s mission of “inspiring fitness through the love of dance,” during each class. Having started in Austin in early 2013, the classes are based on original choreography and having fun. Through attending classes, there is a definite sense of community and camaraderie between the Body Droppers, cheering each other on and having fun on the floor.

This camaraderie will soon be taken to another level. Join Denton and more than 200 Body Droppers for the second  Stomping Grounds, a night of Body Drop like no other. The CG Arena will be transformed into a dance club, complete with full-out lights and fog machine. It’ll be two hours of the latest moves and music, as the best of the best Body Drop instructors lead the stampede through more than 30 songs.

Denton is the founder and CEO of Body Drop. Growing up, both of his parents and brother were martial arts instructors and kept physical and mental fitness as a must for his entire family. When he decided to “take the road less traveled into dance,” he wanted to keep those values and try to incorporate both dance and fitness into one unit. Once he knew the basics, he looked to see if there were any current formats that seemed similar to what he wanted, and found nothing. Some formats were too much hip-hop and not enough fitness, or too much fitness and not enough real dance. He says Body Drop is the Goldilocks of aerobic hip-hop, not too much of an aerobic feel, and not too much hip-hop, just right.

Stomping Grounds is a great way to spend your Saturday night before you head out to the clubs. Bring your friends, and be prepared to have some serious fun. Ask Miss A Austin’s Leslie Silver featured the CG Arena which Austinite Ally Davidson opened last year.
