Just call them the dancing queens!

When Rebecca Romijn is feeling blue, she turns her frown upside down with an old family recipe: a strong dose of dance parties.

And, according to the mom-of-two, she’s already teaching her 3½-year-old twin daughters Charlie Tamara Tulip and Dolly Rebecca Rose the secret to happiness.

“My mom used [to dance] as a tool to work herself out of a bad mood. I remember dancing around the house to We Are Family,” Romijn, 39, tells Health‘s July/August issue.

“I’m introducing the girls to The Beatles and Stevie Wonder. We have a little disco ball in our living room, we love our little dance parties.”

But since the birth of her daughters, it has taken a whole lot more than fancy foot work to maintain her fabulous figure.

“After I had my babies and was struggling to lose the weight, I had to challenge my body in a different way. Bikram yoga was key,” she explains. “You sweat so much, you’ll lose poundage. Though, honestly? I dread it every time. [After] I’m grateful for it.”

And while she does occasionally indulge in her favorite foods, she admits she has had to cut back on drinking wine — even with her mom status at stake.

“I’d fall asleep for an hour and then be wide awake! Every once in a while, I’d toy with the idea of, ‘I can be a cool mom — a party girl at night and a mom in the morning,'” Romijn admits.

“But I’d regret it every time. Because those girls wake up at 6 a.m. no matter what time you come home!”
