DANCE CLASS INFORMATION

WESTOVER TRADING ESTATE, LANGPORT.

WOMENS DANCE FIT (Monday, Thursday and Friday) Adult

These busy classes are for women of all ages and all abilities. The most popular class at the studio, this lesson ignites the pleasure of moving the body to music – classic music such as Elvis, Paul Simon, Sade and classical masterpieces. Many women come to more than one of these classes a week. The focus of the class is fitness, posture and cardio. We have a lot of fun learning simple routines and the music always drives the class along. We welcome women of all ages and abilities as the teaching ensures no one feels left behind - but you do have to be prepared to work hard as the class is going to demand you work internally to externally gaining strength in your core and deeper muscles.

YOUTH STREET DANCE (Monday 5 – 6pm) 10+

This class is taught by professional dancer Lucy Hartland- Mann. Lucy also works on a variety of dance shows and festivals throughout the UK when not teaching in Somerset. The class learns routines straight from the music videos of current chart songs – with Lucy and the group giving it their own choreographic twist! It is great exercise for young people and the average age is 13.

BEGINNERS DANCE FIT (Tuesdays 6 – 7pm) Adult

This class will look after you if you just don’t feel brave enough to join the other Dance Fit classes.
