  • 🎶 Dancin’ Feet Grace Royal Oak

    This January, we saw a ribbon cutting ceremony at the grand opening of AKT Royal Oak on Woodward Ave. — another one of the dance-based fitness concept’s rapidly-expanding studios across the country. Developed by celebrity trainer Anna Kaiser, the workout entails a combination of four full-body training modalities: toning, interval, circuit, and dance.
