Dancinerate® ... helps women and men to be happier and healthier, physically and mentally, one dancer at a time.
My Dancinerate classes take you step by step through each movement, so you don’t have to be a dancer to feel the benefits of the class – but by the end you might feel like one. All kinds of dance...from hip hop to Broadway and from lyrical to jazz, you learn to get out of your comfort zones, work your bodies and have fun doing it. And in "doing it" Dancinerate inspires you to transform your life all through dance. So many times, that for me, it's become not just about instruction and fitness, it's about making a difference in the lives of my students. Dancinerate is a no judgement zone where personal goals become reality.

"I love Ilyse! She makes every woman feel like they can be the best dancer in the entire world and makes people feel great as they transform themselves into what they really want to be."
I truly hate working out, but I love this woman. Her amazing skills as an instructor have the ability to get you up at 7am in the middle of a pandemic and make working out not suck. If you want to feel better about yourself physically, mentally and emotionally I would highly recommend you start taking her classes!
“Ilyse is a star in our books! Her Cardio Dance class brought so much joy to our annual fundraiser, Move for Minds. Ilyse was extremely helpful with every aspect of our event showing up prepared and with so much enthusiasm. She brought her best dance moves so everyone could dance outside their comfort zones and teach their brains something new! We can’t wait for our next event when participants will undoubtedly be clamoring for Ilyse’s class. Ilyse is THE real deal!”
"I hadn’t danced since I was a child when I started taking Ilyse’s class. She creates a fun and supportive learning environment, and her love for dance and general enthusiasm is contagious. I’m so grateful she brought dance back into my life!"
"Whether you are looking for a dynamic lead talent, a brilliant and creative choreographer or just a girlfriend you can meet for coffee, Ilyse Baker is the one to call. I first met Ilyse when I was filming some television shows for Fit TV. This was many years ago when Ilyse was back up talent. From the moment I met her I knew she had my back and also was going to be an incredible star in her own right – and NOW look at her! Ilyse is a person who walks or rather dances her walk, and talks her talk. UBER talented without a shred of ego or drama, Ilyse Baker is a force of nature and talent. This is a gal who, whether in front of 1 or 1,000, gives you her heart, soul and 150% of herself. She leaves it ALL on the dance floor. It is my honor to work with Ilyse often and I have immense gratitude for also being able to call her a friend."
"Dancing with Ilyse makes me happy. More than happy — joyous, ecstatic. I’ve told her this many a time, but when I’m in her class, dancing to one of her routines, I can’t stop smiling. Her passion for dance is infectious, so she makes everyone in her classes (whether a hot 22 year old or a senior citizen) feel like a passionate, sexy dancer who is setting the stage on fire."
"Ilyse Baker is a totally addictive habit in the best kind of way! Ilyse's joy and enthusiasm are infectious - her choreography is glorious - and I am always looking forward to my next Dancinerate class!"
Her charisma , enthusiasm and contagious personality have led her to become one of the most sought after dance instructors in America. She has worked with celebrities such as LeAnn Rimes and Rihanna. Her program Dancinerate® is gaining popularity among the many dance fitness programs that have burst onto the scene in recent years.
We all love to shake what our parents gave us in the comfort of our showers, but what if you could combine both dancing and working out into a calorie burning-routine?
Fitness trainers say they are putting more dance moves in their routines, and high-profile trainer Shaun T has a dance workout called Cize for streaming or on DVD and at gyms including Bay Club in Santa Monica.
