Want a hot bod? Ilyse Baker has the secret and it’s got nothing to do with weight-lifting and treadmills. This is modern fitness for modern people, created by a gal who moved from New Jersey to Los Angeles to bring her beat to the entertainment capital of the world.
Having danced for celebrities LeAnn Rimes, Elton John and Missy Elliot in addition to stints on television, Ilyse distinguishes herself with a self-styled physical workout. Her personalized creation, “I.B. Dancing” blends modern dance technique with rigorous fitness. True to form, her hot moves have set her star on the rise and she was recently nominated for Exercise TV’s “top trainer,” where she’ll compete with a host of dance instructors countrywide. So help a sista out and bag a mitzvah: Vote for Ilyse as she vies for the coveted title.
Wanna see her groove in the flesh? Ilyse, along with fellow dancer Tina Berkett will perform on February 23 at “Shabbat Morning Alive,” a refreshing musical service at Sinai Temple. 8:45 a.m. (but the good stuff will probably start closer to 11am) 10400 Wilshire Blvd., Westwood.
