Your chance to sparkle with White Diamond Dance lessons in Harrogate
Advertising Feature for White Diamond Dance Studios
Inspired by Strictly Come Dancing and interested in trying out ballroom dancing yourself? Why not join James White and his team at White Diamond Dance Studios.
With a lifetimes experience in dance and entertainment, James and his team have been running dance classes in Harrogate for over 11 years. Bringing people of all ages and backgrounds together, in James own words, ‘dance can genuinely change people’s lives, we have a completely diverse range of people who attend the classes, there is no stereotype for who can/can’t join us’.
Not just for girls…
James is also passionate about removing stereotypes and involving boys and girls in dance, so also holds classes with many schools. Although some of the best dancers in the world are men, they still find social barriers to boys joining in, and their work with schools is to help remove these barriers and make children realise that dance is for everyone. Since last year they have also won a contract with Cancer Research to provide lessons for people with life threatening illnesses, bringing some glitter and sparkle in to their lives too.
Involving couples and single people too…
Many couples have found the classes help their relationships by having a mutual activity they do together, but it is not exclusively for couples as James explains, ‘a lot of parents with young children (like myself) often struggle with childcare, but you can also attend with friends instead. Our focus is providing an atmosphere to learn but through the fun and enjoyment of dance. It gives parents their own time away from their children, whilst also keeping fit and having fun doing it’.
Attending with friends also provides an opportunity for single parents and people living on their own to get out and meet other people. With classes including people of all abilities, the trainers are able to work with everyone from learning the basics to perfecting the moves of those with more experience.
Many health benefits…
Dance is actually a sport, which not many realise and can be a great fun way for mums to get their figure back, or simply for people to maintain their fitness. It helps people socialise more easily than doing a workout in a gym, and for many forms part of their social lives in addition to keeping fit.
