A dance fitness class inspired by Strictly Come Dancing has launched to Elland.
Fitness instructor Helen Douro is launching the FitSteps class, which was created by Strictly Come Dancing professional dancers Natalie Lowe and Ian Waite, as well as former contestant and world champion swimmer Mark Foster.
Helen, a teacher, is the founder of Groovy Movers Pre-school and is launching the new classes at Brooksbank School on Tuesdays from 7-8pm.
Helen said: “I really enjoy teaching FitSteps, my class members have so much fun learning the dances and I love to see the progress they make week by week.”
Helen explained the dance is a fusion of ballroom and the up-tempo pace of Latin, and combines moves from the Jive, Cha Cha Cha and Samba to keep the heart rate raised, with a range of slower movements and postures from the Waltz and the Rumba that use muscular strength to tone the torso, arms and legs; offering a unique series of movements that when grouped together have the greatest effect on the body.
Becky Hanson, 36, who attends the class, said: “It’s so much fun, especially the jive. You feel just like one of the contestants on Strictly.”
