Dance Fit’s Aims
At Dance Fit we want everyone feel welcome in our classes as we know how daunting walking into a new class can be, especially if you’re on your own. You will be made to feel welcome; our students are great at supporting each other. In addition we host regular social events so students build on the friendships they make in the classes.
We want you to have fun whilst working out. Don’t worry if you can’t dance you’ll pick up the steps in a few weeks, just remember part of the fun with Zumba is getting it wrong!!! We all start off feeling totally un-coordinated but students soon pick up the routines and develop skills.
We are really keen to support people on their fitness journey offering a range of classes to meet everyone’s needs. It doesn’t matter if you haven’t exercised for years or if you’re a real fitness addict we have something to offer you to increase your fitness and wellbeing. See our classes section for a description of each class. Feel free to contact us to discuss your personal needs.
Anne teaches a variety of Dance Exercise classes and specialises in teaching Zumba®. She is dance trained and is a fully insured, CRB checked, qualified Fitness instructor with a wealth of teaching experience.
Anne has danced all of her life for fun and was lucky enough to spend a month in Colombia dancing to the Latin rhythms. She loves Salsa and Belly Dance in particular and has trained and danced around the world to develop her skills. She wants to share her passion and enthusiasm for dance as a form of exercise with everyone who attends the classes.
Anne holds very lively, fun classes and encourages her students to let them selves go. After all these classes focus on ‘exercise in disguise’. We aim to provide a party atmosphere in all of our classes!!!! You won’t realise how hard you have worked.
Anne advises that when seeking a Zumba® class students check their instructor is licensed to teach Zumba by checking on the official Zumba website. They should then check instructors hold a fitness instructor qualification in addition to the 1 day initial Zumba training and that they have valid insurance as the website does not display these details. It is important to ensure you are attending a safe class with a fully qualified instructor.
