Dance is for everyone
Dance is a popular pastime with all ages - and this year the fitness dance industry is ready to welcome new clients into classes.
Zumba seemed to be the catalyst for dancebased fitness classes, and it’s incredible to think that Zumba is currently celebrating 10 years of instructor-led classes.
Since then there has been a slew of new classes all with a dance-based theme.
And it would seem that, in 2017, the growth will continue.
Strictly Come Dancing will be getting ready to start again on BBC. But did you know that dance professionals Natalie Lowe and Ian Waite have created their own dance-based fitness class?
Fitsteps uses ballroom and Latin dance moves to deliver a great workout. As well as group exercise classes, the couple have also just released their own home workout dvd.
If ballroom or Latin isn’t your thing, maybe you fancy trying Clubercise instead.
This workout transports you straight to the dance floor, as you perform moves and routines to modern club music.
For some though, dance should be more refined and regulated, that’s where Ballet Barre classes come in.
In a Barre class, you learn to move and pose like a classically-trained ballerina.
The focus is more on core stability, and you are trained to extend your muscles and hold your stances with poise and grace.
If getting fit through dance is your goal, have a quick look around at all the classes available and have great fun whatever you do.
