Due to unforeseen circumstances our Zumba Gold classes at the Magnet Leisure Centre will be stopping after the session on Wednesday 29th January.
There are currently no planned Zumba classes to replace them, however Antony will be starting brand new FitSteps classes from Tuesday 4th February.
Our brand new FitSteps classes start from Tuesday 4th February at The Eton Wick Village Hall, Eton Wick Road, Eton Wick, SL4 6LT.
Created by Natalie Lowe and Ian Waite of ‘Strictly Come Dancing’, FitSteps® takes the very best of Ballroom and Latin, mixes it with the latest, proven ways to get fit FAST and deliver the most exciting, fun, fabulous fitness experience you’ve ever had.
These classes are a great way to learn and practice actual Ballroom and Latin American dance steps that wouldn’t look out of place on the floor of Strictly Come Dancing! Add to that the fitness aspect and before you know it you’re getting fit whilst having fun.
Classes are £5 per session or 10 sessions for £45.

Learn To Dance is a dance school run by husband and wife team Antony & Emma-Louise Holeksa. Based mainly in Eton Wick in Berkshire they provide classes, personal tuition, wedding dance lessons and events as well as social dances and dance holidays.
This week we have a new concept (well to Strictly anyway, I believe they tested it out on Dancing With The Stars previously) of a dance fusion, either two dances performed within the same song seamlessly, or a split half-way through.
We’ve seen professionals perform these type of dances at shows before, and I’ve choreographed and performed dance fusions before. These could be amazing, or a complete car crash…let’s hope for amazing! Continue reading →
Sorry for the delay in the blog this week but our hosting company appeared to have a major meltdown of their servers where our database is stored, the website still worked but the blog was unavailable even to draft a post.
Anyway on to Saturday night’s show.
Is it just me or should they really have waited until there were only 6 left before doing a friends skit?! Continue reading →
Just when you thought we were safe from themed weeks it appears tonight at Wembley is going to be ‘Dance Through The Decades’, why can’t we just have dance through the show instead?!
You can definitely see that this is designed to be a higher budget show, amazing what a difference it makes when you’re charging people for tickets (although hopefully a large chunk is going to Children in Need).
Bruce’s intro is just painful for us tonight but (4 repeats of ‘nice to see you’ later) it thankfully moves on to the ‘stars of our show’…oh dear it’s not over yet – cue en masse Gangnam Style. Continue reading →
Kara has a dodgy arm, and Artem probably still a dodgy neck, it’s going to be an interesting American Smooth!
I can see now what Emma saw in her arms earlier, she’s doing extremely well to keep smiling. It’s going really well but then it’s head down just before the standing slide and a very shaky section.
A true professional to keep going but unfortunately not perfect, just a 9.
Craig: 10 “I would kill to be able to dance like that” Len: 7 “Hint of Tango, bit of Foxtrot…unfortunately should be a certain amount in hold…think your dancing is brilliant” Alisha: 10 “You have been a delight…I think you are a beautiful woman…together you are first class” Bruno: 10 “Whatever happens, this was an inspired performance…blend of what you did in this dance was incredible”
So Anton has to complete 3 lifts in the American Smooth, I’m hoping we see a few new ones and not the same ones they keep throwing in each week.
Good start with the lift…and then they land. Actually the start isn’t that bad, though Ann does end up out of time.
There’s even a credible attempt at some scatter chasses.
Much better performance than we’ve seen in recent weeks, and a return to actually trying to dance in addition to entertaining.
One of her better dances, just a 6 though (still being generous for entertainment factor!)
Craig: 2 “Best moments for me were when your feet weren’t touching the floor…one chasse that was passable…one polka that I didn’t mind” Len: 5 “Dancing in its basic form is movement to music, and you did move, to music” Alisha: 4 “Nice to see a lot more dance content this week…well done on the lifts…however still hanging on to Anton for dear life…for me the honeymoon’s over” Bruno: 3 “More like Hello Trolley, than Hello Dolly…on your own you looked like a Dalek in drag”
