WHICH DANCE FITNESS CLASS IS THE ONE FOR ME?

Do you love to dance but don’t know where to go?

Feel like Clubs are not your crowd and dancing in your lounge room is so 2020?
As we get older and our lives become more complicated with family, social and work commitments, taking time out just to be able to cut lose, feels like a luxury we can’t indulge in.

Dance Fitness classes are a fantastic option, if regular dance classes feel too competitive, over-complicated, intimidating or scary. You don’t have to have perfect technique, look like a professional dancer or perform for the eyes of others. They are a place where dance can be celebrated, regardless of your dance ability or fitness level, with the added bonus of a workout without you even noticing.

But where to start? Which Dance Fitness class is the one for me?
Well that depends on the type of music you love to dance to, the complexity of the choreography and the intensity of the workout.

We have sourced some of the best DANCE FITNESS classes worldwide and brought them together under one roof at GLOW DANCE. There is a class designed to suit everybody from a nervous newcomer to the most extroverted party starter.

Find YOUR favourite class.

 

BODYJAM

Les Mills BODYJAM combines the freshest dance moves with the latest cutting-edge music, from house to hip hop and everything in-between. Lose yourself in the music and move your body in inventive ways that you may not have tried before.

 

With a continuous playlist of music, you will tackle two unique blocks of choreography. There is plenty for you to explore, practice and conquer: all whilst increasing your heart rate, challenging your memory and improving your strength, agility, co-ordination and balance.

Learn individual moves, put them together to create the routines and practice the combinations, all to music perfectly matched with transitions and highlights. Feel the excitement build as the music takes you somewhere else and the when you SMASH out what we have put together.

This is the perfect class for anyone who loves a CHOREOGRAPHY CHALLENGE as much as a CARDIO WORKOUT.

Experience the ultimate ENDORPHIN RUSH! When you conquer a complex arm combo or that crazy backward jump turn, you will feel invincible.

SWINGTRAIN

Welcome to your Swing Dance inspired Fitness Class, for those who love the infectious sounds of BIG BAND, Rock n Roll, Electro Swing and Broadway musicals.
Imagine crazy Charlestons, goofy Jazz Moves, some Swanky Blues and Dramatic Broadway Show Endings, all combined to give you 45 minutes of Cardio fun that feels like anything but a workout!

Joyful songs from the 30s, 40s, 50s & more recent Electro – Swing
re-inventions, are the music track-list to a class of unique, beginner friendly, mini-routines. Think music videos, but transported back in time to a
by-gone era, when dancing was all about cutting a rug.

The Energy is high, the Jazz hands are out and the smiles are massive.

No partner or previous dance experience required – just a willingness to have fun!

 

GROOVE

Get ready for a mind-blowing, delicious dance experience.
This is your chance to explore your own unique, creative way of moving, whilst feeling unified and connected with others on the dance-floor.
Funk, Latin, House, Disco, Rock & Roll, Hip Hop and Meditative music. All of these and more could make up your GROOVE class playlist.

No complex choreography to learn and remember, no technique to perfect. Instead, so that you feel instant success, we give you an anchor, a simple movement or rhythm which we all do together. You are then encouraged to explore how your body wants to move, tune in to your own innate wisdom and creativity, and give yourself permission to let dance happen.

It doesn’t matter your fitness level or your dance experience. You go at your own pace and listen to what your body needs. The fact that we are all unique individuals is celebrated. We absolutely and completely should look different to each other when we dance. Dancing how you choose to and how your body wants to is exactly right.

Perfect for beginners, wanting to start slowly or experienced dancers, who want to be reminded of the joy of dance.

RETRO AF

Retro AF (Aerobics Freestyle) is a classic old-school workout that would make Jane Fonda Proud, taking you back to the very beginnings of dance fitness.

Regardless of your fitness level, there is something for everyone, with low-impact options always on offer and simplified versions of the moves to explore.

Costumes are welcome but not a requirement. If you love to dress up you will not be out of place, so raid your wardrobe for 80s inspired outfits, think: headbands, leg warmers, high waisted leotards and off the shoulder tees.

Come as you are and leave as a star!!

 

GRV3

GRV3 is a high-energy cardio funk fitness class, where you will experience a combination of hip-hop, funk, pop and groove; movement that feels good in your body.
