We have been running over 55s dance fitness classes since 2012 when we started our first session at Curve Theatre in Leicester. We now host a variety of popular classes, delivered by our expert team at a variety of locations in Leicestershire and further afield.
Details of all of our current classes, times and locations can be found in the timetable below. We have reduced our offer currently due to Covid-19 restrictions, but are hoping to continue to phase back our classes over time. Our Covid-19 procedures for face to face delivery can be found at the bottom of this web page.
Please visit our Book Online page to book your slot onto one of our weekly over 55s classes.
*PLEASE NOTE - Unfortunately due to the current restrictions, we are not offering any face to face over 55s classes. We will continue to keep up to date with the Government advice and hope to return to classes as soon as possible. We are continuing with an online offer of classes in the meantime. If you would like to know more about this then please contact us here.
