Women in Medicine & Occupational Health Sponsor Hip Hop Exercise Classes

Did you know that dancing is a great form of aerobic exercise?  When you dance, your body and mind benefit. Dancing has been linked to better heart health, stronger bones, improved mood, and more energy. Who couldn't use those things? Not to mention that an hour of vigorous dancing can burn up to 500 calories!

The next Hip Hop Exercise Class, sponsored by Women in Medicine & Occupational Health, will be on Wednesday, April 10th at 5:00 pm in the Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt Theater Room. The class is open to all medical center female faculty and staff, as well as to our male allies. Bring your crew and your best moves! Please email Dr. Ana Nobis at ana.e.nobis.1@vumc.org with any questions.


Dr. Ana Nobis, Medical Director of VUMC's Occupational Health Clinic discovered hip hop dancing at her local YMCA.  "I enjoyed it so much, I wanted to share the opportunity with others. Considering that we spend over one-third of our lives at work, I thought bringing the instructor to our workplace made sense. We try to make it as easy as possible for everyone to participate. I have no rhythm whatsoever, but it's just fun to get out there and move!"
