Hi everyone, shake away those Monday blues with our first Zumba class of the season… TODAY at Stanford Avenue Methodist Church at 18.30. Then we have Pilates, and a new routine, starting from Tuesday.

Take a look at the full schedule of Zumba and Pilates classes on my calendar and hopefully see you at some point this week!!

Bridges y Puentes

I would like to invite you to Ragroof’s latest show Bridges y Puentes, which is coming to East London’s Theatre Royal Stratford East in a couple of weeks. I’m just back from our successful, sold-out stint in Hull, leaving the team up there to do the last day of performances.

I’m not in the show and have been doing some light producing and production support while I’ve focused on our other show Happy Feet. But I’m going to see the show in London on Saturday, 16th September at 7:30pm, with some friends and family including my Mum and sisters and Zumba and Pilates friends. We’ll be eating beforehand and if you want to join us, please drop me an email and let me know. The more the merrier. Or plan to head down another day. This is an incredible show!

We’d also be really pleased if you have a moment to visit us on Facebook or Twitter and tell people about the show.

Happy Feet

Happy Feet in Dreamland Margate and Dover Port Regatta was a huge success and our two new actors had loads of fun dancing with us.

The brilliant news is that, for our last show of the outdoor season, old schoolers Anna and Marion are back with us again … and we’re back in Brighton! We can’t wait!

We’re at Jubilee Square on Saturday, 30th September from 1:30pm – 3:15pm. Do come and see us. We really look forward to seeing you there! This is a free event, supported by The Big Lottery Fund. Visit the Ragroof calendar for full details.

Next Brighton tea dance…

The next tea dance is on Sunday, 8th October at King Alfred Ballroom.

Join Ragroofers Charlie, Discs and Rose for an afternoon of dancing. Come along with a partner or friend – or come by yourself! No need to bring a dance partner as our welcoming hosts and inclusive instant dance classes throughout the afternoon mean that no-one will end up as a wallflower!

Tea is included in the entrance price and cake will be available to buy on the day – cash only. There is also a bar at this venue.

Booking is essential and can be done HERE or on 0800 411 8881.

Join me at YogaFit in Ibiza in October…

YogaFit Ibiza is fast approaching and anyone who fancies this all-inclusive retreat on Es Figueral Beach in Ibiza is more than welcome to join.

The venue and the facilities are outstanding – there are four pools, three Jacuzzis, sea views, a beautiful sandy beach, buffet meals with a sea view and lots and lots of space. The full yoga and exercise programme is out here.

The retreat runs from 15 – 22 October and I’ll be there from Friday 20th to Sunday 22nd. You can join for those three days or for the whole seven, and you can do as many or as few classes as you like. Ten people from the Dancefloor Activist community have already booked.

When booking, use the discount code YOGAFITMATT and get a 5% discount.


Finally, a gentle nudge and a cheeky smile to please follow me on social media where I post regular Dancefloor Activist and Ragroof updates. Also sign up for future newsletters, delivered directly to your inbox, HERE.

See you soon.
