Park Road, Rottingdean, East Sussex, BN2 7HL, United Kingdom
This is a lovely, atmospheric, village hall, with stage (so you can see what I am doing) and a sprung floor (to put a bounce into your step and protect your joints).
It's a well-attended class, with friendly / welcoming participants and great sense of community among us all. This is a large hall, with plenty of room for you to throw your best shapes! The age range is from 20-somethings - right up to enthusiastic 70-somethings - plus everything in between.
I always, without fail, offer a safe and effective warm up and cool down / stretch. We do all the Latino rhythms - salsa, cumbia, batucada samba, merengue, reggaeton, pasodoble, Latin dance, etc. In addition, there's plenty of other fun music too - flamenco, bhangra, denbow, charleston, pop, hip-hop, cha cha cha, belly dance... My playlist is enormous and I rotate the choice every week. I add new routines on a regular basis to keep the sessions fresh and exciting.
I have jingly hip scarves for everyone for the belly dance routines, and fans for the flamenco routines when it's really hot in the summer. Sometimes, we have disco lighting in the winter. I do whatever I can to make the sessions fun, interesting and varied.
In my sessions, the emphasis is on dance with a fitness angle. Having said this, you absolutely do NOT have to be a great dancer - nor do you need to be very fit to join in and have a great time. All ages and fitness / dance abilities are welcome and catered for.
Buses from Eastbourne direction stop outside The White Horse Hotel. Buses from the Brighton direction stop outside Tesco. Walk through the alleyway on the righthand side of Tesco, to the village hall on your left. Free parking in Park Road. Free parking in Tesco car park after 6pm. I usually provide water free of charge.
