What Makes Our Classes So Great ?
It's an easy to learn, fun to do, combination of the best known and most popular Latin & Ballroom dances. It's been designed by two of the best dancers and dance teachers in the UK, Strictly Stars Natalie Lowe and Ian Waite are two people at the top of their game.
The dances are spiced up with proven fitness techniques to make every class a real workout.
You don’t need to be able to dance! You don't need a partner!
You know your own body, so if you have a weakness in your knees, back or pelvic floor area, there are always easier variations for you to do, just have a quiet word with the instructor before the class starts and they will gladly suggest easier options for you you try.
The History Of FitSteps®
FitSteps® came to life in 2013 as the result of a collaboration between two of the UK’s most famous ballroom dancers and Britain’s most successful swimmer!
During the long, arduous dance training sessions that are an integral part of Britain’s most successful entertainment show, ‘Strictly Come Dancing’, Natalie Lowe, Mark Foster and Ian Waite had a great idea.
They decided to mix the graceful steps of Ballroom and the up tempo steps of the Latin dances together to create a really fun, energetic and effective way to stay fit and keep trim that would appeal to everyone, even if they couldn’t dance. A dance fitness programme that is ‘so much fun you don’t even realise you’re getting fit!’
FitSteps® Is Unique
It is the first time that classic Latin and Ballroom dances have been brought together with proven fitness techniques and principles to create not only a programme
that can have extraordinarily wide appeal, but one that also has the potential to make a real and lasting impact on the health of the nation.
The important point to note is the distinction between the plethora of dance classes that exist and FitSteps®. FitSteps® is a fitness class, delivered through dance. So, our emphasis is on helping people towards fitness; structuring the classes to deliver real, measurable, fitness results.
