Apologies for any inconvience.
Diverse Dance Mix is a new fun and entertaining full body aerobic dance workout created by Darcey Bussell and Nathan Clarke
This hugely popular new style of class has been designed by Darcy specifically to combine the fun of world dance styles with the fitness and health benefits of aerobic classes Class tutor Aruna has been trained by Darcy herself and is delighted to launch the class in Solihull..
The aim of DDMIX is to get people moving without being intimidated by the word 'dance' or the technicality of the steps, but instead to give a full body workout that is such fun that you don't even notice that you are exercising. With the vast number of dance styles around the world to choose from, no one will ever get bored!
Please arrive from 6.30pm onwards as the class starts at 6.45pm prompt!
Our staff were excited about the new class so we sent one to attend the first session and report back...
" I really enjoyed the level that we worked to, I'd say a low to medium impact and felt really comfortable and not self-conscious which has put me off other classes in the past. Most people were of a similar fitness to me. Tutor Aruna was very gentle, and explained the moves and sequences well. The music and routines were fun and variable which helps with the enjoyment". Rachel - Box Office
"I'm not a big exercise fan being prone to laziness, but everyone was friendly and we started with a stretching warm-up to some dancey-ballet music before moving onto learning short sequences of different dance moves to music.
These were; Salsa, Eygptian belly-dancing, a boxing-theme, an 80s 'hammer time' routine, a 90s, Line Dancing and a 'Saturday Night Fever' routine with strutting and pointing which was fun! Then finally warm-down and stretches. Aruna was lovely and reminded us how the bits of dances were stretching the different muscle groups. I worked hard but it's not high impact and no section ever felt too long before a quick rest to learn the next one. I really liked the various music used and look forward to adding new sections and moves to the dances each week. Went home hot and tired but glad I went .. it's fun!". Diane - Marketing
