Did you know that dance fitness is one of the most popular forms of exercise for all age groups? From 2016 onwards, companies across the market have added innovative new dance fitness-based programmes from Barre to Zumba to their health programmes. Now it’s time to celebrate these group fitness programmes and a wealth of dance styles from across the world this month.
On the 29th of April, we’ll be celebrating International Dance Day. Founded by the International Dance Committee (IDC), it is now celebrated every year on the birthdate of the Jean-Georges Noverre. Noverre is the creator of modern ballet and today, we celebrate the importance that dance plays in breaking down cultural, ethnic and political barriers.
According to the Department of Education, nearly 40% of schools offer cheerleading as a part of their extracurricular activities programmes. Thousands of children across the country have engaged with the sport that marries gymnastics, dance and agility. So what’s your school waiting for?
