Moving to Music 1

Co-ordinator: Margot Harvey
Meetings: Monday, 10.45 – 12.00 noon, Abbott Hall Social Centre
See Moving to Music 2 for meetings on Wednesday mornings

The two groups might appeal to anyone who enjoys the freedom and relaxation that moving to music brings. Our aim is to keep all our bits in good working order, and have fun at the same time!

We do simple stretching, aerobic and weight bearing exercise and dance designed to maintain, and hopefully improve stamina, suppleness, and strength and at the same time stimulate concentration and memory. We work through a series of routines focusing on different parts of the body and usually include a more creative section that changes frequently.

The music is an eclectic mix that might come from anywhere in the world - Cuba, Italy, Africa, Asia, UK, USA; and any time – the nostalgic 40’s, the rocking 50’s; and any style from folk to jazz, classic (very occasionally), Bhangra, Latin American, and of course, ‘pop’. The only criteria that count are that the music is rhythmic, and uplifting, and so guaranteed to get us moving!

the class in actionHOUSE RULES: Only two:
1. Safety first - non-slip soles or bare feet are a must;
2. You are responsible for your own level of participation - work within your own limitations.

No pain, no strain, just enjoy an hour with a swing.

UPDATE MARCH

There's quite sense of achievement having continued to meet without interruption since last Autumn and now the end of our 'year' is in sight as we finish for our long summer break in May. We have kept the windows open, masks on when not exercising, numbers down and fingers crossed!
The safety precaution of fewer members does, unfortunately, mean that there is still a short waiting list for which I can only apologise, but I haven't forgotten about you!
