So you think you can’t move or dance?
Well we’re all about what we can do in these classes and there’s no prizes for getting it right or being a co-ordinated super star. We choose active ageing, we choose to have fun and be social with less sweat and more laughter! And we choose to do this together, to improve our physical and mental wellbeing. My attitude is – life is too short to be totally serious!
Classes are low impact, full body movement for adults of all abilities. We learn bespoke movement and dance patterns at our own pace with lots of positive outcomes – building stamina and strength, improving mobility, balance and posture and activating the brain – all super important as we age. Why not check out some videos of previous classes here and use this link to secure a space in class.
Prefer to be seated?
We have specific seated classes and mixed ability classes where you are welcome to sit down if you feel that works better for you. Seated movement is an alternative to standing, but it doesn’t have to be less energetic, you just decide how much or as little you wish to do. It suits the elderly, those coming back from injury and people who haven’t been active in a while. It is not age defined, it’s designed to be accessible for all.
So why movement and dance?
Movement is a fundamental aspect of life. It affects everything from circulation to digestion to metabolism to immunity. The body contributes far more to our lives than just physical attributes such as strength and endurance – it plays a major role in emotions, learning, and relationships.
Dance has great physical benefits and gives the heart a good workout. It helps people be more active, social and develops creative and cognitive skills. And when we add music it becomes even more powerful. I promise you, we can all dance, in line with our own abilities and we empower you to be you.
We combine contemporary movements, dance styles and aerobic fitness without any floor exercises. These are not regular exercise classes, they are created for the community – inclusive, accessible, a stepping stone to being more active, physically and mentally well.
So come and tap into your creative side, boost your self esteem and start to feel good again with “Less Sweat, More Laughter”.
