Community Highlights: Meet Jenny Hill of Yes Honey Studio

Today we’d like to introduce you to Jenny Hill.

Yes Honey Studio was conceptualized in the spring of 2018 by Jenny Hill, who took the idea from a business plan to one of the most inspirational and fun fitness studio’s in the country by the fall of 2020. Hill combined her background in fitness and group training with her love for dance to create a dance fitness studio for everybody. Hill spent a year during business development networking within the dance community of St. Louis to find the best and most passionate dancers to be instructors. Together the instructors, or the Squad as we refer to them, bring positivity, energy and a safe space to move your body to the St. Louis community.

Yes Honey offers both YES MOVE and YES STRENGTH classes. YES MOVE are an hour of dance fitness with elements of strength training. They range in themes from hip hop, to Latin, to Bollywood, to jazz, to twerking to Afrobeats.

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Yes Honey Studio opened in December of 2020, so at the height of the pandemic. Needless to say, opening a fitness studio in the pandemic was beyond nerve wrecking and difficult, but we have a mission to be a staple in the dance and fitness world of St Louis for the long haul, so we toughed/are toughing it out. We shifted a lot of our attention to the benefits of fitness, and especially dance fitness, on our mental health.

Hill also found out she was pregnant with her third child a few weeks before she signed the lease for her space. Opening a business with three kids under four years old posted a challenge in of itself. We were challenged to fully staff the studio so that Hill’s daily presence wasn’t necessary in case of a family emergency.

Great, so let’s talk business. Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
Yes Honey Studio is a Dance Fitness studio located in the heart of St Louis.

Join us for energizing dance fitness and strength training classes at our new studio located in the Grove. Dance, train, and move with us led by our squad of world-class dancers and instructors.
