Former dancer and West End star to launch new dance inspired FitSteps® FAB fitness classes

A former dancer who danced alongside the great Rudolf Nureyev and in the West End has left all thoughts of retirement behind him in favour of his new FitSteps® FAB dance fitness venture.

Graham Fletcher, who was a Principal Dancer with The Royal Ballet Company and in West End theatre, has enjoyed a lifetime of dance including teaching at The Royal Ballet School, and Leicestershire Arts in Education as well as at his own Dance Activate, Ballet Associates and Aspire Ballet Training. Now, all these years later, he has become a FitSteps® and FitSteps® FAB (Fit for All Bodies) dance fitness instructor.

Graham says “Whilst on holiday, my wife and I saw a FitSteps® dance fitness class advertised locally, so off we went to give the class a try. Well, we both absolutely loved it and as soon as we got back, I went online and signed up for an instructor course immediately.”

FitSteps® is a fitness and exercise method originally created by Strictly Come Dancing stars Natalie Lowe, Ian Waite, and Olympic swimmer Mark Foster. FitSteps® FAB is especially for those who prefer a lighter intensity, lower impact, and slower pace of exercise class. There are easy to follow moves based on ‘Strictly’ style dances, such as the Bossa Nova and Foxtrot, through to the Argentinian Tango and Waltz, and there is no need for a partner.

“Being already semi-retired I was certainly not contemplating taking on more teaching,” says Graham, “but after becoming a GOLD FitSteps® instructor, and starting my FitSteps® FAB classes soon, I am so looking forward to passing on this wonderful way of incorporating dance, movement, music, and fitness with everyone. It is such a unique and enjoyable fitness programme being designed to appeal to everyone even if they feel that they can’t dance, with the emphasis on having some ‘Strictly’ style fun whilst getting fit!”

Graham launches his first FitSteps® FAB classes in the area on Tuesday 7th November at Great Cransley Village Hall (10am–11am) and at Islip Village Hall (6.30pm–7.30pm). As a special promotion he is offering a free FitSteps® FAB taster class at both venues on that day.
