We have set up an ARTS4HEALTH programme that using fun, engaging, creative activities to improve health and well-being.  Initially

We are piloting 3 Dance Fitness classes based around the FITSTEPS fitness franchise designed and created by X ‘Strictly Come Dancing’

Professionals.

We can provide a course of 12 WEEKS FREE dance fitness classes for any or your service users that fit the criteria above.  

We are also offering paid places if carers/ or friends wish to attend also – @£4.00 or Special Discount for 12 weeks @ £40.00

As you can see from the attached posters the classes are designed around the FITSTEPS routines- which is a popular dancefitness franchise

Created by Iain Waite and Natalie Lowe who used to be professional dancers on ‘STRICTLY’. 

They have created three programmes

  1. FITSTEPS original

With dances such as the Jive/Walz & Quickstep- which we shall be using for our PARENT FIT sessions.  When designing these classes we realised

That many parents with pre-school children would love to go to a fitness class but many do not have child care.  So we have overcome this

Barrier by providing a pre-school practitioner who will provide activities for the children if parents are struggling with child care. 

  • FITSTEPS FAB- For all Bodies (FAB) is a dance fitness workout designed for people who love to dance, want to keep fit, but for a variety of reasons

Prefer a lighter intensity, lower impact and perhaps a slower pace.  FAB combines old style dance genres such as Bosa Nova, Foxtrot, Flamenco and the

Argentinian Tango.

  • FITSTEPS CHAIR– Is a chair-based FITSTEPS dance class best suited to those with lower mobility, who still want to have fun and feel like they’re

Dancing.  This class takes into account specific needs including those who are inactive, sedentary, have a disability, need rehabilitation and is suitable for all

Ages.  Participants will take part in fun upbeat class following the FITSTEPS journey of favourite dances such as the cha cha cha and American Smooth.  The

Instructor is equipped to safely adapt routines to the needs of the individuals.
