About Us

Second Line is a fitness company offering group fitness to people of all ages and fitness levels. Born and raised in uptown New Orleans (13th ward), founder, Ivy (Gaston) Whittington has always enjoyed the unique rhythms of New Orleans style music and attending second line parades on Sundays with friends and family. Growing up in New Orleans, there was never a reason needed to join a second line, just an umbrella, handkerchief or fancy foot work.
So what is a Second Line? Second line is a tradition in brass band parades in New Orleans, Louisiana. The “main line” or “first line” is the main section of the parade, or the brass band members. Those who follow the band just to dance and enjoy the music are called the “second line.”
