Burlex Fitness

 burlexx fitness logo 1.pngis a UK network of licensed fitness classes. It is closely themed on the Burlesque style of dance. Whilst not directly affiliated with the Burlesque industry, we have incorporated choreography from this dance style. With the use of popular and traditional burlesque music, BurleX Fitness is a fun and exciting way to work out. 

A typical class takes place in a disco ball lit room to give you that extra bit of confidence and contains a medium level of cardio fitness combined with interval training. You'll shimmy and wiggle your way through routines with the use of props including boas, chairs, hats, gloves and fans to make your workout exciting and unique

The program is designed to tone, strengthen and improve your flexibility and guarenteed to leave you feeling sexy and confident!

Yoga, Pilates, Meditation & Relaxation

A great new addition added into some of our more advanced and hyperactive Dance, Cheer & Drama classes.

We've found just a 5-10 minute relaxation session at the end of a class calms down our participants and makes them feel at ease. Bringing their heart rates back down and preparing them for the day ahead or chills them out for their evenings.
