Strictly Come Dancing Classes Open Up For Children

Thanks to shows like Strictly Come Dancing, dancing has come back into fashion for all ages. Whether it's salsa, ballroom or some of the new latin trends moving across the waters to UK shores, dance is fast becoming the skill to have.

Which is possibly why one of the stars of the BBC show has decided to bring Strictly to the younger generations. Karen Hardy has created a luxury dance studio in Chelsea to teach children aged 4-16 how to dance.

The classes will cover everything from the classic Waltz to more modern styles like hip hop, and children can take part in groups or one-on-one

With a rising epidemic for childhood obesity, classes like these can help children see exercise as fun, rather than an essential chore. Dancing is a great cardio exercise, whilst toning too, but without putting too much of a strain on your muscles.
The studio also benefits from a coffee shop and champagne bar, so you can drop the kids off and enjoy a catch up with friends whilst they're learning the foxtrot.

If you're interested in signing up your kids for a bit of fancy footwork, you can visit the website or call them on 0845 567 1155.
