Lunchtime Dance Fit Class | Virtual
First responder families, join us for a fun lunchtime activity to get you moving and grooving! This VIRTUAL dance fit class is a quick 30-minute session to uplift and energise anyone currently in lockdown. Shake up the work/school from home routine with a fun, dance-inspired cardio workout. Suitable for everyone – absolute beginners as well as more advanced dancers. In the class, you will learn 3 basic dance combinations and steps, then dance your heart out when you put them to music for a full-body workout!
The session will run weekly on Thursdays until 30 September. You can attend one or all classes!
Being active helps to build resilience and wellbeing, and plays a major role in maintaining mental fitness. It helps us to cope with stress, gives us more energy and confidence, as well as improving mood and quality of sleep. Challenging our minds with new skills, approaches, and information can improve our knowledge and thinking skills, increasing confidence, sense of purpose, and ability to cope with stress. This is a great way to strengthen family / kinship group bonds, as well as to broaden your social network through (virtual) connection with other first responder families. Connection is an important part of the path to mental fitness, and can take a protective role in maintaining wellbeing through increased feelings of happiness, security, belonging and self-worth.
This activity is free for first responders (eligibility here). Suitable for all ages and ability levels. Frontline Yoga teachers are experienced and can provide modifications to suit individual requirements.
This is a small group activity with limited numbers. Note registration is not confirmed until Fortem sends a confirmation email.
