It was during one of Esther’s dance fitness classes on a wintery afternoon on Sunday 28th December 2014 when “singercise” was created. Whilst merrily dancing to Ricky Martin’s “Ay,ay,ay it’s christmas” she began singing the catchy lyrics. Being more out of puff than normal, she quickly realised that singing and dancing burnt more calories……and more importantly it was more fun. The class were beaming back at her (more than usual!) and from then on singing was firmly introduced to all classes.
During the January of 2015 Esther introduced numbers to her class that involved more singing just to gauge the response….everyone loved it.
She quickly realised that singing for the whole hour was nearly impossible however fit you are! She introduced whooping as this takes less puff, but is still makng you work harder than not vocalising at all.
