Experience Dance and Fitness - About Us
Experience Dance and Fitness was set up in 2005 by Gill Lockett, a former Rosemary Conley Diet and Fitness Franchisee, and a very experienced teacher. The original aim was to introduce more people to the joys of keeping fit through dance. Over time, both Gill's love of dancing and her dancing skills have increased to such an extent that she just wants everyone to learn ballroom dancing for its own sake. Gill is now a highly qualified IDTA professional dance teacher in Argentine Tango, Ballroom and Latin and she continues her professional development by training with top teachers and dancers both in the UK and the USA.
Ballroom and Latin classes finally took over from fitness entirely at the beginning of 2007, and the classes have gone from strength to strength. These classes are very popular as they adhere to the rules of teaching beginners. Break down moves into very basic steps, take time and don't rush people into trying out extravagent moves when they haven't yet mastered the timing.
This is our aim - to help beginners grow in confidence, and to instill a love of that dancing that will stay with you throughout life and keep them fit. There is no doubt, that dancing and fitness is like riding a bike. If you don't do it for a while, you will become rusty but once oiled, the joints creak less and the legs will move freely because that is what they are designed to do.
From teaching beginners, Gill has now developed to teach improvers, competitors and fellow professionals, and she offers classes across the board to help you develop your dancing so that you can continue to enjoy it forever.
