Hey everybody. My name is AJ and I'm a dance teacher and choreographer. I work at Pineapple Dance Studios and have choreographed Red Nose Day, ads for Sainsburys with Tom Daley and Louise Redknapp and appeared in Chicago the musical in the West End. I did a dance class video to Justin Timberlake's Can't Stop The Feeling on YouTube for people who use wheelchairs and have limited lower body mobility three years ago and it has been watched and used for exercise and dance almost a quarter of a million times and people asked me to do more - here's that video

- If you enjoyed that (and hopefully you did) - here's the news! 

This Saturday I am teaching an hour long free to join in dance / dance fitness party class to awesome songs with easy to follow moves on my instagram and YouTube channels, linked below. Just follow me and log in five minutes before the class and you can do it at home, on your computer or phone or TV. I would recommend doing it on your TV via Youtube if you can as it's the clearest with the best signal and sound. Any questions or thoughts let me know and hope to see you there. Please spread the word as the more the merrier!

    Hi @SitDownAJ - Welcome to the community. Thank you for joining & sharing about your free class. We all certainly need to try & keep exercising at the moment, which has the bonus of making us feel better both physically & mentally. I look forward to it. :)

    Hey @chiarieds :) thank you! Exercise is so important and also dancing just makes me happy so I wanted to share that with people who might have lost their avenues for both. It's probably the only thing that's kept me semi-sane the last few months. Hope you enjoy it! I'm also doing a Six the musical seated class for charity in July :)

    As a physio, tho I qualified a long time ago, I'm always encouraging exercise here. I think your class will engage a lot of people; exercise can be fun! Thank you again. :)

    OH lovely. I've actually got a list of exercises and movements that the physios at my relative's care home drew me up for people who use wheelchairs and I'm incorporating them all so the class should be a full body workout involving every movement needed for helping mobility and getting the correct physical exercise / maintenance for the upper body. It's my job to make it look like it's just for fun tho :)
