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 Moseley since 2017.

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.

“Dancing is great for maintaining strong bones, improving posture and muscle strength, and increasing balance and co-ordination. It’s also a brilliant way to meet new people, helping to tackle loneliness and social isolation.”

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 Moseley for several reasons! Firstly, it’s very good all-round exercise, including a moderate amount of cardio vascular exercise, lots of stretching, balancing and co-ordination, helping us to maintain and improve posture, balance and muscle tone, including the core muscles. 

It’s a surprisingly good work out for the brain too. Anyone who doesn’t believe that, has clearly never tried it! The wide variety of dance styles adds so much to the sessions, making the experience interesting and enjoyable, as well as giving so many different muscles some work to do! Many older people live on their own, so the social side of attending a session should not be underestimated. The whole ethos of Keep Dancing is about trying your best but never feeling embarrassed about making mistakes or not managing all the moves. The atmosphere is very positive and encouraging. And it’s great fun! 

When I walk out of the church hall after a session with Keep Dancing, I notice that my whole mood has been lifted and I feel physically and mentally better than when I went in.

When I first start learning the routine, I always think to myself I will never get this. But with patience from my teacher and practice from me over the month I get there and feel amazing when I dance the whole dance from start to finish. It gives me such a feel-good factor

I always feel good after a dancing session. It has improved my mental health .I have made new friends and enjoy meeting up with them each week. I find dancing brilliant exercise as I don’t like going to the Gym or other forms of exercise. I have found that my clothes have been feeling looser and have I gone down a dress size since dancing restarted after lockdown.
