Dance yourself fit

Combining basic street dance with elements of hip hop, popping and commercial dance, an awesome urban style is created.

I was lucky enough to pop along to one of Clare Stringer’s Urban Dance classes held at Hazelwood Dance Studios in Bury St Edmunds.

Immediately I noticed something different about this class, every single member of the group was there to have fun.

Greeted with smiles and friendly faces (which made me feel a little more relaxed as I am someone who cannot dance), I felt instantly welcomed.

First we started with a gentle warm up, this got me used to a few of the dance moves I would later be using within the routines.

There are students of all standards within the class but as a complete novice I soon picked it up. The dance sets are taught in stages so they are easy to pick up and follow. In fact I caught myself getting quite into the routines, I would even go as far as to say I was ‘busting a groove’ or two.

The routines are held to music that gets you moving every time you hear it. I could not think of a better way to get fit, keep fit and learn to dance like they do in the movies!

If Urban Dance is not you’re thing, or maybe you’re looking for even more moves, you could try your hands (or feet) and a Studio Dance & Fitness workshop?

From Chair Dance and Burlesque, through to Rock and Roll and Musical Theatre, no matter what age or ability you may be you’ll have fun, learn some great moves and burn calories! Great if you have a beach holiday coming up this summer. Great moves, burn calories and tone your body.

And for those of you who simply can’t stop, Clare also runs pole fitness in Thetford. Classes are held for beginners through to seasoned advanced pole goers and once you’ve accomplished that try “pole performance”, “urban pole” and “cardio pole”! I couldn’t believe how many varieties there are! This session is next on my hitlist.

As if all of that wasn’t enough there is even a class for the kids, a special Urban Street Dance is held on a Wednesday evening.

I really enjoyed my time in Clare’s class and I think its safe to say I will be improving my dance moves further at more of her classes in the future.
