Dancercise Breaks 2021

with Ragdale's elite fitness team

Thursday 8th – Saturday 10th July 2021

Thursday 7th – Saturday 9th October 2021

Thursday 25th – Saturday 27th November 2021

If Body Pump leaves you feeling deflated and Body Combat has you fighting to get away, then why not join us for a unique two-night dance break in luxury countryside surroundings.

Apparently, we all share a natural sense of rhythm… Dancing, unlike some forms of exercise, is a combination of physical activity, freedom of creativity and a way of emotional expression. Not only does dancing have positive effects on the body, but it also gives your brain a workout too! Some benefits of dance include boosting your happiness levels, improving your flexibility, balance and posture, whilst making time to reconnect with your inner self and others.

Our activity timetable features a range of popular dance workouts but this is your chance to be among a friendly group to try your hand (or feet!) at some new ones too, all choreographed specifically for this event by our amazingly creative team and led by award-winning trainer, Dean Hodgkin, who has headed up dance projects for top brands such as Nike and Reebok.

There will be plenty of time to recharge too – relax and be pampered in true Ragdale Hall style; roam freely in our Thermal Spa, Rooftop Infinity Pool, indoor and outdoor pools, or unwind in one of our quiet relaxation areas – and enjoy a luxurious 40-minute treatment.

The expert-led classes will feature non-complex, easy to master routines – so even if you have two left feet, the emphasis is simply on getting your body moving. With some never-seen-before classes being launched during this event, who knows, you could be witness to the next fitness craze… and keep your new-found twinkle toes moving long after you leave us! And as we always say, our aim is to not only put a little sweat on your brow, but also to put a big smile on your face!

“We were straight into learning some fantastic routines, including a hot Latin Salsa and an energetic jive! There was a mixed range of abilities and all the routines were delivered by dance teachers who ensured we were challenged, but that nothing was too complex.” – Julie Player, Fashion Editor, Simply You
