The yummy food served during the holidays usually adds extra pounds to our waistline. Cookies, pie, eggnog and stuffing are just some of the goodies that tempt us for months.

As with most things in life, it's important to find a balance between enjoyment and self-control. One of the ways to help shed weight while still indulging once in a while during this special time of year is to take a fun dance class.

Fortunately, the culturally diverse city of Los Angeles offers classes for specialized dance disciplines from around the world. Students can learn belly dance, African, Bollywood, salsa, tap, burlesque, hip-hop, waacking, jazz-funk and break dancing -- just to name a few.

Additionally, Los Angeles has various reputable, world-famous dance studios. Some of the more popular studios include Debbie Reynolds (www.drdancestudio.com), IDA Hollywood (www.idahollywood.com), Millennium Dance Complex (millenniumdancecomplex.com) and Edge Performing Arts Center (www.edgepac.com). The classes are taught by professional dancers and choreographers and are sure to give you a challenging work-out in an upbeat environment.

So, mix up your typical trip to the gym this holiday season with a dance class. In addition to burning calories, you can enrich your life with art, culture and new friends.
