Let’s Do This

What is WERQ?

Our WERQouts are designed to give you the best sweat with repetitive athletic moves and fresh dance steps. WERQ instructors build a heart-pumping playlist featuring the hottest pop and hip-hop music. Each week, new choreography is introduced, so you can WERQ the routines you know and have the opportunity to challenge yourself with the ones you’re learning.
