Our instructor, Penny, has been working with the Active Blaby Team as our Fit to Dance/Keep Moving Instructor for over 10 years and ensures that these classes are fun, inclusive, and welcoming!

Chloe BradshawPhysical Activity Development Officer

Our Fit to Dance classes combine routines from various dance styles including line dancing, contemporary and ballet to offer a varied but fun exercise class. Our aim is to improve your health, fitness, and well-being in a fun and social way. This programme is aimed at those who are 55+ and inactive and/or less mobile,  but we welcome anybody who is 18+ and looking to become or stay active!

In class, the line dancing routines are often a favourite, as they are a great way to get your heart pumping and have a laugh. The ballet routines are then great for balance and control, as well as being good at bringing your heart rate back down. You will learn different routines every 4-6 weeks to help keep you on your toes!

Like the sound of this? Why not try our Thursday class, which follows a similar style to Fit to Dance, again, being aimed at those 55+ who want to stay/be more active. However, our Keep Moving class also incorporates strength and balance routines into each session,  to give you an all-round workout!
