All included in your Modern dance workout class:
If you want to be fitter, leaner and lighter (and hate the gym), modern dance can deliver impressive physical results, and not a treadmill in sight.
This single, one hour lesson is the ultimate private dance class, and the perfect introduction to dancing.
No huge up-front course fees, no special workout kit to buy, no timetable to fit into and
nobody else seeing your moves. Bliss.
In this unique class, first you'll experience a full posture check, followed by a really thorough warm up.
You'll dance two individual workouts, the first for arms and upper body, the second for legs and feet.
Then you'll learn two full dance routines using a variety of steps inspired by ballet, tango, ballroom, samba...
And finally, you'll relax with a cool-down session.
It all adds up to a great dance and a very thorough whole body workout.
Let extraordinary teacher Alexx Wood guide you on a journey into the world of dance whilst encouraging you to use your whole body and a full range of movements.
Watch her now as she teaches simple moves to her class of complete beginners…
"You're amazing. You make it so simple."
"Alexx is such a lovely teacher."
"The Modern Dance Workout class is excellent - it's uplifting, it's energizing and it's sooo relaxing."
"This is amazing - it made me feel graceful!"
"Whoa, that's MUCH better than going to the gym! It's so interesting, you never get bored and it uses your whole body. Fabulous."
"I always knew that dancing was good for you but I never learnt it when I was growing up so I didn't know what dance I'd be good at. Plus, the prices at my local center were quite a lot as they only run courses so you have to pay in advance. I got your DVD and now I know which bits I really enjoy. It was so easy to understand and no pressure because it was just me at home! And now I go to contemporary/modern classes because I loved the routine at the end of the DVD so much I wanted to do more."
Am I going to lose weight doing this?
Anything that gets you up and out of your armchair, that raises your heart rate even just a little, will burn more calories than doing nothing. And there some quite strenuous exercises in the class that will get your blood pumping, no doubt about it. Will you suddenly lose 5 pounds after doing the class once? No. No class will do that, but you know that already.
What modern dance will do is introduce you to working your whole body, deeply and thoroughly. Done regularly, it is one of the best all round exercises and dancing often is certainly going to help you lose weight.
BUT WAIT! We’ve got a secret.
OK, so doing this class once or twice isn’t suddenly going to make you lose a load of weight.
But, this class (in fact, most good quality dance classes) can make you LOOK as though you've instantly dropped a few pounds in a matter of minutes. How? By encouraging you to stand correctly. Good posture instantly makes you look a little taller and a little more trim. So there you go. You won’t lose weight doing this class once, but you can look like you have. That's dancing's secret weapon.
Is it full of fit, skinny people?
Nope, not at all. This class is a very accurate example of exactly who goes to a beginners dance class. There are some complete beginners in it - people who have never, ever been in a dance class before, not even as a kid. Then there are a couple of people who have been in classes when they were much younger and can vaguely remember a few steps. And there are a couple of people who are clearly quite fit. So there's a real spread of ability, along with a clear mixture of ages, weights, shapes and fitness levels. This is exactly the mix you're likely to see an average beginner's dance class.
Do I need special shoes?
No, bare feet are ideal. If you feel the cold, a pair of socks are absolutely fine too. Fling on some comfortable workout wear, like jogging pants and a t-shirt, and that's it.
