FitSteps Dance Fitness Classes
Is FitSteps® Similar to Ballroom and Latin Dance Classes?
Have you been watching Strictly all these years and wishing you could enter the world of the glitterball? Are you amazed at how toned up the contestants get by just dancing? Would you like to learn the ballroom and latin steps but you don’t have a partner to take to a traditional ballroom or Latin dance class? Already tried Salsa dance classes and ready to expand? If any of the above applies to you, or you’re looking for a different way to get fit and make friends then FitSteps® is definitely for you.
FitSteps® is an energetic, up beat dance fitness class featuring all of your favourite strictly dances. It is designed to give real, measurable fitness results and is suitable for all ages and abilities. You don’t need any dance experience and you don’t need a partner. Created by Ex Strictly Come Dancing Professionals and Ballroom and Latin Champions Ian Waite and Natalie Lowe, it mixes the graceful steps of ballroom with the up-tempo steps of Latin dances to create a fun filled class where you don’t even realise you’re getting fit! It first launched in 2013 and now has over 2000 instructors across the UK.
24 Fit Derby are now delighted to be able to bring this amazing dance craze to a venue on your doorstep. Our instructor will expertly guide you through the iconic steps of the Salsa, Cha Cha Cha, Waltz, Jive, American Smooth, Paso Doble and more, whilst giving you a whole body workout that can burn up to 700 calories a class. You will laugh, lower your stress levels, make awesome friends, feel better and happier and tone and sculpt your body. You don’t have to partner with strangers either (to those that have attended a Salsa dance class for beginners). It doesn’t get better than that!
What is FitSteps FAB®
FitSteps FAB® is a modification of FitSteps, FAB is an acronym for “For All Bodies”. FitSteps FAB® is an offshoot of the original format that has been significantly modified to make it appeal to people who love to dance, want to keep fit, but for a variety of reasons, prefer a lighter intensity and lower impact. It’s very popular with the over 55s with daytime classes being the norm!
The FAB classes incorporate dance styles with swing and sway roots, such as the Foxtrot, Charleston and Swing Jive, and others such as Theatre Jazz, Disco, Flamenco and the Argentine Tango. This combination of graceful and up-tempo steps creates a class that is a great cardio workout, tones the body, and puts a bounce back in your step!
