Thursdays, 1.30-2.00pm

DanceFit is a non-partner dance programme for boys and girls, which links physical activity with mental activeness.

Research shows the concentration, coordination and self-control needed while learning to dance, helps with other subjects.
DanceFit incorporates balance, timing and stretching. Engaging your muscles helps with balance. The children warm up with balancing steps, which are fun and challenging.
They then learn basic stretches and the importance of stretching. Taryn also teaches why counting and staying in time with the music helps with the overall dance performance.
Taryn teaches her dance programmes in schools as part of their regular PE programme. Her dance routines are fun and full of energy.
