Swoove fitness logo hi resGet your Swoove on as the next big craze in fitness is launched at this years Lindfield Arts Festival.

On 28th December last year Esther Featherstone aka the Pink Lady, was doing an especially cheesy Christmas track in her Zumba class, Ricky Martins "Ay, ay, ay it's Christmas"! After singing the whole number she realised how much more fun and harder the workout had been.  Fast forward 6 months and Swoove Fitness© has been born.

Esther created the word Swoove©which means to sing, whoop & move, which is the concept of the class. The warm up will concentrate on breathing exercises & warming up the voices.  The class will then consist of at least one 80's & 90's anthem, a Michael Jackson track, a jive, a charleston, a hand jive, a disco number & current chart hits.  The hook song will be "I like to move it“ by Reel 2 Real with the lyrics being changed to ”I like to sing it, sing it, I like to whoop it, whoop it, I like to move it, move it...we like to SWOOVE it!"

Esther says she has taken on 5 years of feedback about her classes and feel there is a real niche in the market for an easier to follow dance fitness class that burns more calories.  12 of her current regulars wore heart rate monitors to several classes and sung and whooped throughout one class and stayed quiet throughout the next, the results were between 60 – 240 more calories burnt.

"Now when I say sing...I don't expect everyone to be intune"  Esther says "My tag line is calories don't have ears & don't mind if you're out of tune, they just care that you're swooving!"

“I am so unbelievably passionate about Swoove©that I am making my first fitness DVD with profits going to the fantastic local charity Kangaroos.”

The launch class for Swoove Fitness is on Sunday 20th September at 2pm at the Sports Hall at Lindfield Primary School as part of the wonderful Lindfield Arts Festival.

Don't miss out, be there at the start and go get your Swoove on!

Fitsteps

fitsteps

Fitsteps is the result of a collaboration between ‘Strictly Come Dancing’s’ professional dancers Natalie Lowe and Ian Waite and Britain’s most successful swimmer Mark Foster. It is a mix of the graceful steps of Ballroom and the up tempo steps of the Latin dances to create a really fun, energetic and effective way to stay fit. It is the first time that classic Latin and Ballroom dances have been brought together with proven fitness techniques and principles to create not only a programme that can have extraordinarily wide appeal but one that also has the potential to make a real and lasting impact on the health of the nation.

For more information on Becky’s classes visit her website www.dance2tone.com

The free workshop will be at the Community Hall, Lindfield Primary School 11-12 on Sunday 20th September if you would like to come and have a go.

A sensational way to keep children fit and healthy… it’s bundles of fun and educational too!

This phenomenal new fitness idea is designed to be an energetic, motivational and inspiring activity for children, encouraging them to keep fit and healthy by learning fun and funky dance moves they see all around them and relate to the moves in a positive way. Popsteps is a fantastic mix of commercial dance styles, including jazz funk, and the combination of uplifting music and high-energy moves to create a brilliant environment. For more information on Becky’s classes visit her website www.popsteps.com.

Team LAF are working hard behind the scenes.  Not too many breaks with wine at the moment, but certainly everyone has a number of tasks to get done before the month of June is ended.

We have workshops arranged, Jacqui Smith is offering some design sessions at the new Barratts development in Gravelye Lane and the African Drumming workshop is back for another year too.  Peter Voight is offering to show you how to mend your violin, something you really need to know.

The programme is getting very busy and we are so pleased to welcome back both old friends and performers once again.  The Barefoot Players are showcasing 'Little Women' and the Mid Sussex Sinfonia are giving us a concert on Saturday night.

The Lindfield Plays will be fascinating to catch. Little snippets performed by local children and performers from all ages.  Living out Lindfield's History.

Sponsors have kindly made it possible for most of the workshops to be FREE, all you need to do is register on the website and collect a ticket from SWALK when they are available in August.

Talking of sponsors, we have so far secured funding from:

Barrett Homes, The Comber Trust, Mid Sussex District Council, Lindfield Parish Council, Lindfield Preservation Society and last but not least from Howard at the Bent Arms.  And without Cathy from Personal Potential Training we would not have our fabulous postcards nor would you see our adverts.

Additional Information

Drum workshops and ‘taster’ events are great to get people involved and to give a sense of ‘try before you buy’. Workshops are run for adults and older teens as part of a short series to bring out your inner drummer!

thedrumcoach is a not-for-profit community organisation providing drum workshops and 1-1 tuition to local adults. Donations go to the Ebola Fund and to several West African charities and causes.

We’ve also formed a Community Drum Band made up of members from these local groups, who can play short sets at local festivals and village events.

Please enquire about fees and dates available.

Questions that often arise when attending drum workshops:

What will we be learning?

Core West African rhythms, starting with the easier, more accessible ones, and building up to more complicated patterns

How to hit the drum to bring out the right sound - and not hurt yourself!

How the various drum parts connect with each other. You will also hear how the large bass drums underpin the djembe rhythms Some of the origins of the drum and the rhythms used in West African culture

How will we learn?

Mainly by having fun, and by learning and playing together! From instruction from thedrumcoach - going slowly at the start, then building up speed and technique Having time to practice and repeat the rhythms to gain more fluency and confidence

Some 1–1 time to review progress and help overcome any barriers or difficulties By using the best of current adult learning principles and memory aids

What if I haven’t played a drum before?

NO experience necessary! Just enthusiasm, bring your own talent! Don’t worry, we’ll take it easy, nice and slow to build up your confidence If you have played before/are experienced, we can build on that - more experienced players can take on more complex parts

Help, I don’t have a drum!

We limit workshops to 15 so there should be enough drums there to play. Maybe share with someone else and listen for awhile… Bring your own djembe or conga if you own one.

How fit do I need to be?  How will I play the drum safely?

No special fitness needed, but you do need to be fully able. We will use chairs and there are some straps available to help hold the drum close. You won’t hurt yourself! (well, maybe a little bruised finger!)

More about thedrumcoach… Peter has been playing and teaching for over 15 years. He is also a qualified personal development coach. He has learnt from one of the world’s drum masters, Mamady Keita. Peter has performed in West African drum and dance groups Yiri Baa and Kakandé, and with other ‘world music’ bands including Kunundrum and Glastonbury regulars - Carnival Collective.

He has formed a number of local drum workshop groups that are all progressing nicely! He also runs Summer Drum Days with a guest drummer (please enquire for dates).

Any drum workshops running nearby?

We run frequent drum workshops mostly in east Sussex and West Kent – current groups running in Lindfield, Hadlow, Sevenoaks. Payment is for a series, not a ‘drop in’ (ask for details). Personalised coaching Peter also offers 1-1 coaching and tuition as an option to learning in a group. Please ask for coaching rates and locations.
