Want to be the best one on the dance floor when we’re let out of lockdown?!
Or even if you don’t have a competitive streak, perhaps you’re done with journaling for your self-care practice and want something a little more energetic.
Well, now you can get moving and grooving as a whole host of new dance classes are dropping online. Better yet, they are entirely free.
The twinkle-toed team over at The Royal Academy of Dance are on a mission to help you beat the quarantine blues by throwing shapes like you never have before.
There’s a little something for everyone, with kids’ classes to help relieve the boredom of home learning, ‘Step Up’ classes for adults who want to break a sweat, and ‘Silver Swans’ sessions designed to get the older generation flexing their best Nutcracker moves.
Chatting about the initiative, former ballerina Dame Darcey Bussell said the classes are great not only for physical health but also boosting mental health too.
Bussell, who also graced our screens as a Strictly Come Dancing judge, said: “The Royal Academy of Dance is committed to promoting a love of dance in everyone, of any age and of any ability, wherever you are across the globe.
“Dance is such a creative, artistic activity that helps us all express our emotions while boosting positivity, wellbeing and keeping us fit.”
If you think you’ve got what it takes to pirouette across the living room, all you need to do is tune in via Facebook or YouTube every Tuesday and Thursday from 12.30pm.
But be mindful, that’s for the Step Up class only…
For the little ones, you’ll find all your exercises already on the Academy’s website, though note they’re not for total beginners and some experience is necessary,
However, for the golden oldies, whether you know your plié from your pointe or not, you’re encouraged to get involved so take a peek at their bitesize videos online.
Just remember to move that vase or grandma’s urn before you start moonwalking across the rug.
