Benefits of Dancing
Over the last few years, various studies have shown that dancing is not only beneficial for your health but that it also boosts people’s flexibility, improves reflexes and provides plenty of positive stimulation to the brain. In addition to this, it provides an interactive environment which is fantastic for socialising and meeting new people. Understandably, as with any social situation, some people can feel a little anxious and self-conscious but this is why we set up classes for various different levels. We can even offer a full range of diploma fitness classes if you are slightly worried about your energy levels but still want to get involved. We aim to attract all and have something for everyone.
Dancing is one of those pleasures that anyone can do even without prior training. Most of us do it without thinking when we put on our favourite music. However, if you are looking to take it up as more of hobby you should consider a few things beforehand. What are your aims and motivations for wanting to dance? Are you looking to do it to develop your strength and fitness? Will it be something you do alone or do you particularly want to learn to dance with a partner? How technical do you want to get with it or do you want to be bring your own creativity into and be able develop some of your own techniques? Before beginning any dance classes you should give yourself a better idea of what each category of dance entails and what you should expect to be doing and learning.

Their experience even goes beyond just dancing with all of our instructors and physios having attended numerous fitness and massage therapy courses to aid our students in maintaining a healthy body and caring for anyone who might experience any injuries.
