Natalie Lowe ‘Be Inspired’ Master Class – Burgess Hill
The Fitness Family hosted a Master Class with Natalie Lowe in Burgess Hill on 2 June whose beautiful movement quality, energy and passion captivated us, but just as importantly, the beautiful person within made a lasting impression which we will cherish for some time to come.
Natalie Lowe (ex-professional dancer from BBC’s ‘Strictly Come Dancing’) is touring the UK & Ireland over June/July to bring her ‘Be Inspired’ Dance Master Class to the public. It includes a technique workshop in addition to a FitSteps/FAB class plus Q&A with photo opportunities.
Natalie invited us to demonstrate our Samba 2018 routine so that she could see how The Fitness Family have progressed her Dance/Fitness program over 5 years. Unlike most others, we incorporate all 20 steps into one routine for each dance style with:
1. Equal repetitions on right & left leg lead
2. Low & high intensity/complexity options for different levels of participant
3. “Tea breaks” (lower intensity steps) in between high intensity movements, and
4. Smooth transitions with no sharp direction changes.
