What is fitsteps?

Fitsteps is a fun and up beat dance fitness class. Featuring your favourite Strictly styles of dance from Jive to Waltz and Tango to Samba plus many more.

Created by Strictly professional dancers Ian Waite and Natalie Lowe and Olympic Swimmer Mark Foster.

The class is suitable for all ages and abilities - no previous dance training needed.

Unlike Strictly you don't need a partner to be able to take part in the class.

You will have so much fun you won’t even realise you are working out!

Fitsteps classes incorporate great fitness and a wide variety of music styles.

Whilst the fitness is good for our bodies and health, music is also a wonderful healer. People often comment on how the music during the class has uplifted their mood if they have had a bad day.

The true beauty of music is that it connects people!

Recently we were lucky enough to meet Ian Waite and Vincent Simone at the Fitsteps Chance to Dance event!

We also welcomed Ian to Birchington in October 2022 to host a Fitsteps Masterclass. He taught Fitsteps routines, had photos with everyone and we had a brilliant Q&A learning about his time on Strictly, his influences and role models and how he is enjoying Strictly this season!

Scroll down to hear from our Fit steppers about why they love the classes and to view our full timetable.

Hear what some of our wonderful Fitsteppers have to say about our classes.

Kelly - I really enjoy Philip's class.  He is a patient and kind instructor.  His classes are always fun and I love how he is so welcoming.

When work gets in the way I miss not going. I have met some lovely people too.

I look forward to future classes.

Lesley - I love coming to Philips classes. He is a wonderful teacher, patient and kind and has an obvious passion for dance which he shares with us.

I always feel like I am having a good time and feel uplifted by the classes. Lots of different music and dance types.

Philip teaches sections at a time so it is easier to pick them up. Nice atmosphere and a good workout.

Don't like to miss a class!!
