Emily says hi, and also introduces cute dogs - Barry and Petunia. Find out the 2 things you need to know before starting your dance course.
WARM UP 1: HAND DANCING
Before we begin learning dances, let’s warm up the body. This is a sitting down warm up, in which we make beautiful shapes with our hands and arms - like turtles, fish and caterpillars.
WARM UP 2: THE DANCEY ONE
Our second warm up is fun, fast and rhythmical. It’s energetic and playful. Follow along, get warm and get ready to leap frog!
WARM UP 3: STRETCHES
Join us for some simple, enjoyable stretches. Barry and Petunia will be giving us some very helpful tips and demonstrations. Stretching helps us get ready for dancing, and also helps keep our body flexible, strong and healthy.
DANCE CLASS 1: THE MOUNTAIN ONE
Learn your first dance with Emily, Barry and Petunia. This dance is accessible and fun, great for all ages and levels of ability.
DANCE CLASS 2: THE FAMILY ONE
Get your groove on, because when we dance together, we become like family. In this simple, lively dance, we move our hips, we shimmy our shoulders, we grape-vine, march, swim and boogie. Fun for the whole family.
DANCE CLASS 3: THE ONE WITH THE FABRIC
This dance class is held outside on a beautiful rock. We work with a gorgeous, expressive style of ballet. We also use a prop in this dance - a piece of fabric. No previous ballet experience necessary. Enjoy!
DANCE CLASS 4: THE ONE WITH THE COLOURFUL HANDS
This is a sitting down dance - a great one to do if you’re feeling a little less energetic. If you want to, you can join Emily in painting your hands to make the movements look beautiful and interesting. Learn cool, rhythmical clapping patterns and revisit some of the hand movements we learnt in our first warm up.
DANCE CLASS 5: THE ONE WITH THE HAT
This is a slightly longer, slightly tricker choreography - so try this one when you’re ready for your next challenge! Bring a hat and look out for the part where Barry and Petunia interrupt the class because they want to go for a walk.
DANCE CLASS 6: THE MOONLIGHT ONE
Step it up another level again for an even more detailed choreography, with lots of yummy moves and grooves. This is a delightful fusion of upbeat contemporary moves, mixed with touches of smooth, classic styles. You can totally do it.
DANCE CLASS 7: THE ONE WITH A PARTNER
Our final dance class is a feel-good, festive partner dance. (If you don’t have a partner to dance with, that’s okay - just follow along with Emily’s part). Guaranteed to make you feel happy and alive!
FINALE: THE DANCE-ATHON
This is EVERY choreography played back to back, without any instruction. Challenge your physical stamina as well as your brain power with this fantastic opportunity to get down and boogie with 25 minutes of continuous dance.
Take a few gentle stretches to cool your body down and thank yourself for a job well done.
BONUS 1: BEHIND THE SCENES:
