Dance fitness is easy to do and it really works!
We use a mix of music in our classes covering lots of different rhythms. So the classes are NEVER boring! We play lots of Latin – Merengue, Cumbia, Salsa, Cha Cha, Reggaeton and Quebradita. There’s often a bit of Banghra and Bollywood too and always some current Pop, Old Skool and even some 70’s Disco!. Around 60% of the music we play is Latin based, with the rest being other fun music. We always start with an easy ‘warm-up’ and finish with a stretch ‘cool-down’.
We use a cardio fitness style called Interval Training – combining slower dances with faster upbeat tracks that have dedicated toning movements (for arms, abs, legs etc)…so that along with improving your cardio-vascular fitness, you are also working your core muscle groups. Interval Traning has been proven to work faster at helping you get fit than traditional aerobic type workouts.
Your instructor usually dances in front of the class, while students follow along. Each song normally repeats the same steps and movements, so that it’s easy to pick up. But it’s not about getting the steps right. Classes are about having fun and letting out your inner dance Goddess! It is most definitely the most fun way to tone up, lose weight and get fit!
Come & try out a class! All classes are £6 PAY-AS-YOU-GO.

Dance Fitness & the Zumba programme as a weight-loss and fitness regime really does WORK – but you have to get off the sofa and down to a class! You won’t get fitter and slimmer sitting on the sofa eating chocolate and drinking wine…. (sad though that may be!) If you put in the effort at classes – then you WILL see rewards. Twice a week works at least FOUR times as fast!
