NEW FAB Dance Programme For All Bodies, Low Intensity And High On Fun.
FitSteps® For All Bodies, ‘FAB’, is a dance fitness workout designed for people who love to dance, want to keep fit, but for a variety of reasons, prefer a lighter intensity, lower impact and perhaps a slower pace. FAB combines old style dance genres such as the Bosa Nova, Foxtrot to the Flamenco and Argentinian tango.
The workout combines sway and swing roots, making it great fun to do whether young or simply young at heart.
The dance steps are easier to follow enabling more participants to have fun getting fit while learning classic dances of the ages.

FitSteps® came to life in 2013 as the result of a collaboration between two of the UK’s most famous ballroom dancers and Britain’s most successful swimmer!
During the long, arduous dance training sessions that are an integral part of Britain’s most successful entertainment show, ‘Strictly Come Dancing’, Natalie Lowe, Mark Foster and Ian Waite had a great idea.
They decided to mix the graceful steps of Ballroom and the up tempo steps of the Latin dances together to create a really fun, energetic and effective way to stay fit and keep trim that would appeal to everyone, even if they couldn’t dance. They created FitSteps® - the unique dance fitness programme that is ‘so much fun you don’t even realise you’re getting fit!’
It is the first time that classic Latin and Ballroom dances have been brought together with proven fitness techniques and principles to create not only a programme that can have extraordinarily wide appeal, but one that also has the potential to make a real and lasting impact on the health of the nation.
The important point to note is the distinction between the plethora of dance classes that exist and FitSteps®. FitSteps® is a fitness class, delivered through dance. So, our emphasis is on helping people towards fitness; structuring the classes to deliver real, measurable, fitness results.
The programme is based around twelve of the most popular Latin and Ballroom dances. Each dance genre has specific steps matched to it.Our instructors are able to deliver these steps in varying degrees of intensity, adjusting the level of effort needed to accommodate the varying levels of fitness that could be found in any mixed ability class. This makes FitSteps® classes suitable and achievable for everyone, no matter what age, gender or previous experience. We’re proud to say that we have had people from the age of 9 to 74 participating in classes across the UK, all of whom loved the experience.
