ABOUT RETRO-SWEAT

Shannon Dooley founded this hour of '80s power in 2011, and it's where iconic songs, fabulous fashion, and iconic exercises combine to create an experience so euphoric and cathartic that you forget you're working out.

 

They star-jump, flick-kick, and grapevine to the wonderful music of David Bowie, Bananarama, Pat Benatar, and WHAM! every week at multiple venues in Sydney, Australia, and online across the world. They grapevine, squat, star-jump, chassé, and work up a pretty good sweat, all while having a lot of fun!

 

All ages and levels of experience are welcome! The Retrosweat room is a welcoming and safe atmosphere. Let us EnterTRAIN you! Come as you are! Your cardiovascular system is actively improved, fat is burned, and your entire body is sculpted during this workout.

 

The Retrosweat atmosphere also allows you to express yourself creatively, culminating in a cathartic release and strong resuscitation of your inner child.

THE VISIONARY

Shannon learned everything she knows from her mum. She struggled to find the treadmill appealing, a competitive dance class appealing, or any form of traditional workout motivating after graduating from NIDA with a BA in 2007. Her heroes, Prince, Jane Fonda, Cher, Richard Simmons, David Bowie, and Madonna, told her what she needed to do: establish a workout class that she would like attending.

 

Shannon's passion of famous and timeless pop music, vintage fashion, and mission to make dance and movement accessible and fun for everyone came together in Retrosweat. She is a qualified fitness instructor, storyteller, choreographer, singer, 1980s enthusiast, and 1980s expert who believes that working out should be enjoyable and fabulous. Shannon enjoys using Retrosweat to transport people on a theatrical and joyful time travel experience in which they may forget about their twenty-first-century problems, let go of their inhibitions, reawaken their inner kid, and have a great time.
