Want to try some Dirty Dancing?
Around the Academy:

Dancing's a fun way to keep fit
Hot foot it along to your nearest dance class

Want to get active, but ball games aren't for you? Fancy getting fit, but trackies aren't your style?

Well, how about strutting your stuff on the dancefloor instead then?

From ballet to ballroom, street to salsa - there's something for everyone.

And with the latest dance movie hitting the big screen soon, EVERYONE is going to be at it!

If Dirty Dancing got your feet tapping, you're sure to be hot-footing it along to the flicks to catch the sequel Havana Nights when it's released this summer.

Ricky Gervais keeps the rest of The Office amused with his dance moves
Don't dance like your dad!

And after you've munched your way through the popcorn, you may even fancy trying out some of the sequences for yourself!

There are dance classes going on the length and breadth of the country, so it couldn't be easier to keep step with all the latest moves.

Here at the Academy we've checked out a few styles for you to try.

And if none of them get you in the groove, remember there are dozens more to choose from.

So whether you waltz, shimmy or boogie your way to your nearest dance class, it's up to you!
