I’ve been dancing since I was about 3 years old and now teach fitness and dance to those aged 5 to 105!
As well as Zumba, I teach tap, ballet, contemporary dance and acrobatics and specialise in developing classes for adults. I also choreograph for a local theatre company and have performed in numerous stage shows as well as on Television.
When I’m not doing something dance-based, I can be found eating cake and looking after my four girls!
Our initial Parkinson’s Seated Zumba Gold Group began in July 2015. This class was inherited from a previous exercise instructor and I’ve developed it in my own style, further going on to create the additional BCAS class.
We aim to provide a fun, friendly, welcoming environment, for those of all abilities to enjoy and benefit from gentle exercise to music, as well as a providing a great social network for like-minded individuals.
Monday 12.15-1.15pm BCAS – Body Conditioning and Strength class
Focusing on fine motor skills, joints, flexibility and balance gentle, focused movements in a calm environment.
Tuesday 12.00-1.00pm Seated Gold
Improving range of movement, agility, strength and co-ordination fun, music-based exercise with props to aid movement.
All exercise is aimed at those with Parkinsons, with movements tailored to assist in maintaining maximum mobility.
Wear comfortable clothing and trainers if possible (though not essential). Water is provided but please bring your own drink if you prefer.
Why it’s important:
- Maintaining regular, gentle, stimulating physical activity
- Keeping the joints moving as mobility becomes compromised
- Improving strength, balance, grip, flexibility and range of movement helping with freezing and tremors
- Socialising – getting out of the house & having fun
- Retaining a sense of control
- Developing a positive new habit
- Non judgmental. Can’t do every move? Everyone is in the same boat
What our classes mean to all of us: EMOTIONAL SUPPORT, PROTECTIVE, LOVING, TRUSTING.
We share so much together, we look after each other. Our rapport is paramount. We are so much more than just exercise classes. We’ve formed a community, a social network, we have FUN
