Dance Fitness Fest set to Rock Redbridge

Published on: December 21st 2022

A GIANT Zumba Party will kick start the New Year for residents in Redbridge.

London-based Vision Redbridge Culture and Leisure Trust has planned a sensational Zumba Party to kick start the New Year. Everybody and anybody are invited to come along and dance the afternoon away at Sir James Hawkey Hall, Woodford Green on Sunday 29 January 2023. 

The event is taking place at one of the largest indoor venues in Redbridge, to enable Vision RCL to offer over two hundred free places as well as maximum capacity for guests to move freely. 

Zumba and dance instructors will be gathering on stage from 2.30pm until 5pm to teach a non-stop, engaging dance style work out. 

A live DJ will keep the crowd moving, by playing music and rhythms that combine the dance styles of salsa, merengue, mambo, flamenco, chachacha, reggaeton, soca, samba, hip hop music, tango and more. 

Zumba offers physical, mental and social benefits as a full body work-out which can improve co-ordination, boost your mood, provide a safe and encouraging space to learn how to dance which supports you to feel connected to a community. 

The day has been designed to bring people together to dance, de-stress, meet new people, try something new and have fun. 

This event is part of the wider programme Active Body, Healthy Mind.  A partnership between Redbridge Institute and Vision Redbridge Culture and Leisure to deliver an exciting programme of physical activity taster sessions across Redbridge. The FREE sessions are aimed at supporting adults (16+) to be more active, find their ‘thing’ and encourage them to take part on a more regular basis. 

Physical activity has the potential to boost and enhance all aspects of our wellbeing and support us to feel connected to ourselves and others. Vision RCL strongly value these positive benefits and aim to support the community to access them by hosting a range of physical activity and wellbeing activities which are accessible to all.
