Dance does everything. You get fit, tone your muscles, and it’s a memory boost because you’re picking up choreography and remembering steps,’ says Kimberly. Want a bod like Kim’s? Try her three favourite movesé THE WAIST WHITTLER Pirouettes are a great way to work on your abs. Balancing on one leg, try making a complete turn around yourself. As you improve your balance, you’ll also be improving your core muscles.
THE CORE CREATOR The humble handstand can improve your core fitness, which helps with posture and balance. To start out, get on all fours with your heels against a wall. Keep your shoulders directly over your wrists and lift your bum up to form an upside down V shape. Step up the wall, one leg at a time keeping knees bent. Straighten both legs, engage abs and lift shoulders up away from ears. Play around with taking one leg off the wall at a time.
THE LEG LENGTHENER Dancing is about learning to use your body to its full effect. If you’re not up to the stage where
you can do the splits mid-air, strengthen your legs by starting with squat jumps. Lower into a squat and spring up before lowering down to a squat. Repeat 10 times per session.
Kimberly’s working with Just Dance 2017 and video game-inspired dance classes at Gymbox, Covent Garden
