The Met commissioned the Monica Bill Barnes Dance Company to choreographed the workout.

“I bought two tickets and invited my art-loving, exercise-loving friend and we came here and it met every expectation,” said participant Jill Slater.

The first of 16 sessions, starting Jan. 19, were sold out months ago to participants ranging in age from 13 to 85. The interest was so intense 10 more workouts were added, through March 9.
