Effective, enjoyable class for all ages and abilities. Exercises and dance moves to improve/maintain all areas of fitness – i.e. coordination, posture, range of movement, balance...also good for general wellbeing and mental health. Work at your own level.

You will follow this basic pattern for each session:
• A warm up - consisting of a pulse raiser, mobiliser and short stretch, which prepares the body for the aerobic section.
• The aerobic section - is a mixture of high and low impact exercises. The tutor will show you alternatives to exercises so that you can work at your own level.
• The cool down - includes exercises to lower your pulse, muscular strength and endurance exercises (for the tummy, thighs and improved posture) then a cool down stretch and a remobiliser to finish.

Routines will be varied to incorporate different styles (cha cha cha, charleston, modern, jazz, pop). Enjoying moving is important. Wear comfortable clothes (tights/leggings/exercise trousers, T-shirt etc.). Please bring a mat or towel for floor work. Suitable shoes must be worn to provide support and absorb shock. Bring bottled water or something to drink to re-hydrate the body.

Please note there will be no teaching sessions on 04/06/2021

Abingdon and Witney College is subject to Ofsted regulation and is required to work with all its students to make sure they understand Government initiatives around Safeguarding, Prevent and Fundamental British Values. Information on these matters will be shared with you during your course.

You will also be asked to complete monitoring paperwork, which helps us to deliver course content to the highest quality.

The course is designed so you can progress within it. i.e. progress to a bigger range of movement (deeper bends), more high impact, more repetitions during the floor work.
No previous knowledge or experience is necessary. The course is for anyone who is interested in developing a regular exercise regime to maintain or improve their fitness levels. You will work at your own pace. Developing an enjoyment of exercise and movement is considered to be the most important outcome. Moves can be executed at a low, medium, or high level; many can be adapted to be done sitting, lying down or standing. However, it is desirable that some part of the class can be done standing.

Courses can fill fast, so please enrol early to avoid disappointment. Decisions on whether a course is to run are made two weeks prior to the start date - an email will be sent to you should there be changes to your course or if it is cancelled. Please check your inbox leading up to your course, including the junk folders. For anyone without an email account, our Admissions team will phone you instead.

For the first week of the course you will need to bring a valid form of identification; this includes passport, driving licence, debit/credit card, Birth Certificate or National Insurance card.

Please note - you should be 19 years old or over at 31st August 2020 prior to starting the course.
Courses offered by the college are fully or partly funded by the Government and the published fee takes account of this funding.

Before starting a course, the College is required to check you meet conditions relating to that funding, e.g. age, residency status within the UK/EEA, prior qualification level and employment status. In some circumstances (such as with online enrolments), these checks can only be completed after you have enrolled and paid.

If you are unable to pay in full for this course at the time of enrolment, and the course tuition fee is £300 or more, an instalment plan is available. If this is your preference, please do not enrol online but rather call the Admissions Team on 01235 216400 to enrol.

Once enrolled, Admissions will take the first instalment payment from you and pass on your details to the Finance team who will email you to set-up your payment plan. Please return a fully completed instalment plan to Finance as failure to do so could result in being withdrawn from your course.

The 19+ full fee button displays the full fee that may apply. As the rules on fee reduction are complicated, we would encourage you to talk to our Admissions Team on 01235 216400 to discuss these options. You can also visit the Course Fees & Finance page by searching 'Fees and bursaries' at the top of the page.

As this is a non-accredited course, there is no formal qualification. However, you will be asked to complete activities that demonstrate how you are progressing on your course.
Verbal feedback, self-assessment, tutor always available before the class to discuss any personal goals, offer alternatives. You talk about your level of fitness, other classes you attend, other activities – such as walking, gardening – what you would like to achieve in the class, any difficulties (bad knee, poor balance). You keep a record of your learning and receive feedback during the course regarding your learning.
