LR DOT DANCE & FITNESS
Dance. Love. Sweat.
Hi, my name is Lovelyn Redfearn. Most people call me Love.
As of September 2022, I have decided to take a hiatus from teaching my weekly cardio hip hop dance & fitness classes under LR DOT.
I do however continue to teach Cardio Burlesque every Thursday evening at The Culture Shock Training Academy near Old Town. To book a class, you will need to contact Culture Shock directly. LR DOT & Culture Shock are two separate businesses. You cannot book class at Culture Shock through this website. I also teach indoor cycling (dancing on a bike) for PURE INDOOR CYCLING in Little Italy. You will also need to contact PURE directly to book a class. Don't forget to use my discount code LOVELYN25 to save 25% off ride credits.
My story for starting LR DOT? Well as you all know COVID-19 has impacted us all in ways we'd never imagined. As the saying goes.. "When life hands you lemons, make lemonade". I learned to lean into the skid and pivot. Dance was always my passion, but had been more of a side hustle for years. The "Shelter In Place" order offered me the time to turn the side hustle into the MAIN HUSTLE. And I haven't looked back since!
I fell in love with dance at a young age competing and joining in school talent shows all the way through high school. I have danced professionally on multiple San Diego dance teams such as Culture Shock San Diego, UFX and 220. I have had the great honor of dancing for amazing SoCal choreographers at incredible venues such as the historic Spreckles Theatre in Downtown San Diego, Lyceum Theatre, House of Blues San Diego, PETCO Park, Waterfront Park, and the famous Key Club in Los Angeles.
Professionally I have danced for Sea World San Diego, provided & styled groups of dancers for San Diego COMIC CON & FUNKO several years in a row. I also provided choreography for the San Diego Mesa College Dance program. I was a back-up dancer in a YouTube music video re-make for FLO-RIDA’s “Wild Ones”, and for multiple local San Diego artists. From 2014-2017, I was the Lead Production Manager and an ensemble dancer for "A Culture Shock Nutcracker", a hip hop theatrical created by Angie Bunch, Founder of Culture Shock San Diego. In 2012 I also had the amazing experience of living abroad in China as a professional dancer.
More recently, I have provided well-being classes for large corporations such as Andaz San Diego, a Hyatt property; GreatCall, Wunderman Thompson, Crohns' Foundation, Hyatt Aviara Carlsbad, and Curology. I created choreography & taught the final round of the '20-21 Sirens Dance team auditions. I am also a Creator for TikTok for their Creative Learning Fund Campaign. Thru this campaign I am able to continue sharing my passion for dance & fitness with 60 second tutorials! Add me on TikTok & Duet me!
I have also partnered with incredible fitness advocates & influencers such as Strength In the City, SUTRA, Babes Who Sweat & SweatinSD.
Through dance and an overall passion for health and wellness, I strive for human connection. Dance & exercise are my forms of offering support, love & inclusion to my community. I hope to inspire others to “start”, and how to step into their power to build confidence, so they too can feel the positive effects that a healthy lifestyle can create.
At a root level, I believe dance can be fun and should be embraced, enjoyed and not feared by anyone.
