Get into the groove with Dance Fitness

Malvern Hills District Council is challenging 14-25 year olds to become fitter and healthier by signing up to a new Dance Fitness course.

Through Sport England's Sportivate scheme, and working with the Sports Partnership Herefordshire and Worcestershire and Dancefest, Malvern Hills will deliver a six week Dance Fitness course.

Dance Fitness is a course looking to provide aspects of modern dance that will help improve fitness. The course will cost just £10 for all six sessions and will be starting on Monday 23 February 2015. The sessions will take place at Sport Dyson Perrins from 3.30pm-4.30pm. All abilities are welcome and no dance experience is needed.

Off the back of these sessions, participants will have the opportunity to join and sign up with other classes that Dancefest host across the county.

Poppy Marriott, from Dancefest, said: "Dance Fitness is an energetic weekly dance class using several different dance styles such as contemporary, street, hip-hop and zumba to promote health and fitness – so come along and get fit whilst having loads of fun."
