Fit for the Floor
We’ve worked in collaboration with disabled and non-disabled practitioners in the fitness, wellbeing and Dance Sport industries to give athletes a unique programme for getting back into Para Dance Sport after a lengthy time away from training and competitions due to Coronavirus. This has been made possible with funding from the Department of Digital, Culture, Media and Sport.
Designed to assist athletes in getting active and fit for when they can return to competition training, the super flexible online programme is made up of different mini-courses, including two body and mind fitness courses with videos for athletes to join in with. These videos are to help increase fitness, strength and stamina and also to help athletes focus, unwind and relax. Athletes can go back and do these videos, again and again, to get competition-ready!
This is open to our Instructors and Competitive Athletes https://paradance.org.uk/dance-sport/competing/
