Xpress-Yourself Keep Dancing dance classes have been running since 2013 and run across the West Midlands and many our dancers have been dancing with us for a number of years, testament to the success of Keep Dancing. Xpress-Yourself Dance CIC have run an adult dance class in Acock’s Green since January 2023.

A reason for Keep Dancing’s success is the variety of styles of dance taught which always offers participants a new challenge. Variety is the spice of life and actually we as human beings thrive on variety. This is why Xpress-Yourself Dance CIC Keep Dancing dance classes change the music playlist, dance routines and styles of dance each month to offer you variety. A variety of dance styles taught mean that you as the participant will gain a variety of health benefits.

Keep Dancing classes are known to improve balance, stamina, cognitive thinking, coordination, strength and mobility all important factors for healthy ageing .One of our dancers has told us that she can get up and down the stairs with greater ease just as a result of dancing once a week.

Whilst variety is important for our Keep Dancing classes the same dances are taught across all classes at the same time and across the same month. This allows to build the movement memory of the routine in the body and most importantly build the confidence of the dancer so that when they dance the whole routine, they feel a great sense of achievement.

Keep Dancing gives you a feel good factor and all participants are supportive and encouraging of one another so if you are a complete beginner or you have danced before you will be made to feel welcome.

Styles of dance you may learn at a Keep Dancing class may include, Jive, Bhangra, Ballet, Line Dancing, Salsa, Paso Doble, Disco, Foxtrot, Quickstep, Waltz, Rumba, Cha Cha just to name a few. You will be taught be professional dance artist and you will not need a partner to dance with. All keep dancing dances are choreographed so that you can dance solo.

I love Keep Dancing for several reasons first and foremost it is a form of exercise that involves two of my favourite thing’s music and movement. It is a great alternative to physio which unless there is an injury, or obvious medical need I have not been able to access on a regular basis since leaving school (a long time ago) and some form of overall exercise is really important.

Second It is a good form of exercise for me as it targets areas that are really
important for my mobility and balance.

Third It is an holistic approach to wellbeing as you have to use your brain as well as your body. The routines are obviously very carefully thought out to challenge us, but at the same time, with practise, are achievable by us mere dance mortals!! Also the teachers you employ to lead us are wonderful. They have a very real understanding of how to teach us but also make it fun and enjoyable. This is a rare skill, and is another reason for the success of the class.

Of course local venues benefit from the hire of premises too. There is also of course the social aspect of the dance too. We have a great time
as a group, there is laughter, solidarity and a communal feel. Recently on a regular basis four of us regularly go for a coffee after dance and we have really formed a great friendship. The tea dances are a great way to spend an afternoon as well.

Keep Dancing is also to be congratulated for its efforts to start again after the lock down. As I was unable to access the online classes, it was lovely to be back in person.

I have attended the classes since they began . During the break for covid I really missed them . I have made new friends as I was new to the area and love the social aspect as well as the health benefits . I have high blood pressure which had been reduced and mentally I feel more connected with the local community. I think the dance classes are very beneficial for all of us who attend.
