Mash It Up Dancehall-Fitness class description

Dance with you heart and let it go! Learning authentic dancehall steps & isolation work as a warm up, the steps are then linked together creating a choreography.

We literally do not stop throughout the whole class so you also get a serious good workout. Dancehall is very grounding & you use the legs & core the whole class. You will dance like you’ve never danced before & the class will enable you to really let go in the love of dance without being self conscious.
