Dance with Melanie Griffiths
Dance.. Get Fit..Have Fun.. Relax
Melanie has been passionate about dance and movement since age two where she could be found dancing in front of Top of The Pops!! By age four she was tap dancing and singing on the local village stage.
She trained in Ballet, Jazz, Modern, Tap for 20 years and then went on to study ATS and Cabaret style Bellydance, The Nia Technique, Brazilian Samba and Cuban and LA/ Cross Body Salsa.
Melanie teaches a variety of different styles of dance at around East and West Sussex and on the Isle of Wight.
On this weekend we will experience both Dance Fit and Dance Fusion workshops - work at your own pace and most importantly have fun !
DANCE FIT blends dance styles from all over the world with elements of martial arts and yoga for an all round holistic workout. We will move from pleasure rather than force following natural extension and moving within our natural range of motion so that we don't cause injury and over exhaust the adrenal system which can cause other health issues.
We will have fun and relax at the same time, stretching out muscles, easing emotions and calming the mind., if the group wishes we can include some meditation.
DANCE FUSION is more lively and suited to the late afternoon classes. We explore different styles of dance from Jazz, Contemporary, Street, Musical Theatre, Latin Jazz, Bollywood and many more styles.
We will warm up and stretch in the style of the chosen dance and then learn enchainments (chains of steps) and full-on routines in these dance styles.
We'll have fun, we'll laugh a lot and have a damn good workout!
