Get fit and stay fit with dance
No matter how much you workout, your regular routine could always do with a revamp. Dance classes are a wonderful way to inject some excitement back into your fitness regimen.
With this in mind, Daniel Bermeo saw the potential that dance has to positively impact the fitness and wellbeing of city dwellers and founded DAN’S – London’s first Latin American dance-fitness studio. Located near Oxford Circus on Cavendish Place, this inclusive dance setting offers a range of innovative and exciting classes (Fitness, Soul, and School) to get any urbanite excited about getting a sweat on. Building upon the offerings of traditional dance studios, DAN’S aims to “make dancing more accessible, modern and fun” by fusing feel-good fitness with Latin American dance.
Perfect for socialising while you sweat, DAN’S classes are the perfect way to lift your spirits while bonding with pals during a fun and exhilarating workout.
As well as being a hive of social activity and togetherness DAN’S is also accessible to people of all ages, shapes and sizes. According to health insurance provider Bupa, dancing is an effective way to raise your heart rate and can burn 400 calories in just one hour. They also suggest that dancing as a form of exercise is a great way to boost your mood. This is because it increases the production of certain chemicals in the brain, such as dopamine and serotonin, which can positively affect mood and thinking.
So, if you’re lacking the motivation to get up and moving, why not book yourself in for a soul-nurturing session? At just £19 for your first class, and £126 for a six-week course (one class per week) DAN’S makes for a perfect alternative to an expensive gym membership.
For the all-in experience, book the DAN’S Triple Taster for just £35 ( 1 Fitness, 1 Soul, 1 School).
