Dance Aerobics was imported to Switzerland from the USA by Patricia Matthey in 1983. In 1980 Patricia (American by birth/Swiss by marriage) started taking Dance Aerobic classes in Ohio. She loved the concept of dancing to become fit, trained to become an instructor and came to Switzerland as a Certified Fitness Instructor with the idea of starting her own classes in St. Sulpice (VD).

Shortly after opening her own classes in St. Sulpice she began training other women to teach Dance Aerobics and now “The Dance Aerobics Company” has three fitness methods, dance2Bfit, melodyfit and kids’dance2Bfit and over 150 instructors/franchises throughout Switzerland.
