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.

Dance time Age is no barrier when it comes to keep­ing fit with dance
