Join me for a Vinyasa Flow that will inspire, ignite, and give gratitude for this amazing gift called LIFE!
For those who don’t know, I was hospitalized a month ago with an advanced case of strep pneumonia. I was in ICU for 12 days–6 days in an induced coma, and 3 days to recuperate. My near death experience has deepened my awakening and has shown me that our deepest challenges bring us closer to our true selves and our authentic purpose. My recovery has been speedy due to making my health a priority and yoga a regular practice.
My doctor said to me over and over again… “Your healthy life-style saved you.”
I’m very excited to teach a Yoga workshop for SC Fitness!
Strut Fit is a life style. Yes, it started out as a dance/cardio class but because of who I am and what and how I teach, it’s never just about the physical, it’s much more… It’s about the body, mind, spirit connection as well. Besides being a professional dancer and choreographer, I’m also a yoga instructor… and more than anything an artist. Strut Fit is no different…we are creating our lives thru being fully present and aware…listening to our bodies. As Strut Fit has grown, I realize, what makes Strut Fit unique and what I enjoy most about it is seeing the evolution, confidence, change and connection that women make to their own sense of who they are as females, as a feminine energy, a creative spirit - a sense of freedom and fun! Strut Fit isn’t one thing that fits tightly in a box - it’s limitless, boundless and playful. It’s sexy from the inside out. To me, that’s really what ‘sexy’ is - feeling comfortable in your own skin, appreciating and nurturing our bodies, making our health a priority, being alive and enjoying life! …letting our hair down so it can blow in the wind…living passionately and creatively… That’s sexy…that’s Strut Fit.
AZ Resort & Spa Features STRUT FIT During Dance Week
The lovely ladies at Tucson’s Canyon Ranch Resort & Spa are a sizzlin’ and a shakin’ with Lindsley Allen this week. She’s on-site teaching Strut Fit - the featured class during “Dance Week” at Canyon Ranch. “It’s an amazing resort and spa,” says Lindsley. “All around health and wellness - very spiritual - it’s been a blessing! And the ladies are loving the Strut Fit classes!”
“I thought Zumba was awesome but strut fit blew me away. It was fun, sexy, and sweaty! I have never had so much fun in a workout class before. The sex that just comes oozing out of your body while you are embracing inner goddess is undeniable! And you totally forget the fact that you are actually working out because you are having so much fun! I can’t wait to so it again and I wish that my gym offered this class everyday!”—Shannon Higgs Matusky on Strut Fit
It was a double-dose of fierce, fabulous fun on the set of Anna Paquin’s Free Ride - a new feature film written and directed by Cherry Boom Boom co-producer Shana Sosin AND choreographed by Cherry Boom Boom creator Lindsley Allen:

Thank You, Ladies, for a Fabulous First Strut Fit Year!
When I started the Strut Fit series this year, I hoped it would be a fun, sexy, inspiring workout that would make women feel good. So as I reflect back on 2011, I am overjoyed that so many lovely ladies showed up to strut their stuff week after week, month after month. The transformation I witnessed in these women - inside and out - has truly been one of the biggest thrills of my life.
Thanks to all who came out and supported Strut Fit in 2011. I look forward to seeing you in the New Year. Classes start back up again January, 10, 2012. Details to come!

This week Strut Fit creator/choreographer Lindsley Allen is in Florida working on a show for the Ormond Beach Performing Arts Center - her 4th year choreographing for their annual “Showclub Follies.” It’s a pretty amazing event, as it brings together three generations!
Lindsley teaches for Hollywood Connection too - all over the country, kids 5 to 21. But for this event at the Ormond Beach Performing Arts Center, dancers are 50+ so she’s teaching the “older kids.”
"My mom, Doris Allen, has been part of this performing company for the last 5 years," says Lindsley. "And my Grandmother, Jane Allen, is a founding member, still dancing at age 87! In fact, my Grandma credits dancing for keeping her going…. Literally. The dancing never ends!"
If Strut Fit is rock ‘n roll grooves enhanced with yoga moves, then YOGALICIOUS is just the opposite - the grace and strength of yoga practice enhanced by the sensuality of Burlesque Dance. Yogalicious strengthens confidence, improves body language and empowers women to liberate themselves and feel fabulous from the inside out.
While things fall into place for the next stage of Cherry Boom Boom, I’ve been busy creating and teaching a fun dance workout series inspired by Boom Boom moves - Strut Fit. More than anything, Strut Fit is a direct response to the same question I’ve been hearing from women since Cherry Boom Boom began - “How can I get what those girls have?!” Those girls are the Boom Booms, of course, who strut their stuff on stage with ease, just oozing confidence in their bodies and embracing their fun, fabulous feminine sides.
Strut Fit is unlike any other workout in that in covers a whole range of getting in touch with your inner STRUT - a unique combo of yoga, cardio and sexy, sassy rock ‘n roll grooves. Though I draw heavily from my experience as a professional dancer and choreographer, Strut Fit routines are for anyone with any amount of dance experience. I’m also a certified yoga instructor, which gives me a whole other set of tools to draw upon in creating a truly holistic workout routine.
Best of all, women are loving Strut Fit! And I love teaching it, watching these wonderful women bloom. They walk out of Strut Fit with a bit more sass, inner playfulness and confidence in their everyday strut. The music is fun, the girls are fun, and we’re just having a blast!
I’ve taught a few Strut Fit series, as well as Master Classes around the country, and it’s really taking off!
In August I taught Strut Fit classes in Hanover and Spring Grove, PA. It was a truly eye-opening, affirming and fabulous treat. The classes sold out in a week, attracting just the audience Strut Fit is intended for - everyday women from all ages, backgrounds, physical types and lines of work. Women coming together and having a great time doing something very different than what they have in their usual routines. Doing something for themselves that makes them feel fabulous from the inside out and celebrating being a women in a really fun and sexy way. The women in PA were craving Strut Fit - and they enjoyed every minute of it. I love these women - the HEART of America. We laughed so much! In fact, it went by too quickly and they have asked me to come back soon, which I am pleased and honored to do.
I’m back in L.A. now, excited to teach a new Strut Fit series at the gorgeous Movement Studio starting Tuesday, September 20th, 7-8 pm:
5-week package Sept 20-Oct 18 - $100
10-week package Sept 20 - Nov 22 - $180
Drop ins always welcome - $25
Space is limited, so sign up to reserve your spot at www.movementstudiola.com. Heels are optional, but highly recommended as they’re so much fun! Just make sure they’re DANCE Heels - secure and rubber bottoms only.
After a wildly successful sold out run of “The Rendezvous” at the King King Hollywood in April, it became clear to me and our fans that it’s time to take it Cherry Boom Boom to the next level. That means a bigger venue and a broader audience. So my producer, Shana Sosin, and I are looking for a new local venue, as well as opportunities to take Cherry Boom Boom nationwide and international - ready for Vegas, Atlantic City, Miami, and Paris!
Specifically, we’re looking for residency at a new L.A. venue that seats at least 500 people. It should also be ideal for Cherry Boom Boom’s set and staging. Beyond that, we’re ready to take Cherry Boom Boom on the road, touring the States and abroad. To that end, I recently created an EPK that I sent out to producers, investors and booking agents who may be interested in joining the Cherry Boom Boom team, and we’ve already seen some promising interest on the East Coast.
So that’s where things stand for now - patiently allowing the right team, space and timing to present itself so that Cherry Boom Boom can shine bigger and brighter than ever before!
