6 Week Programme – Return to Dancing Fitness – Rhys Boorman

Rhys Boorman is running a ‘return to dancing fitness’ programme starting with a ‘live’ session on Sunday 21st March, and another ‘live’ session 6 weeks later on Sunday 2nd May.

In between the two ‘live’ sessions, Rhys and the Morris Federation will be sending you weekly workout sessions to focus on improving your fitness in preparation for (finally!) returning to dance practice and/or dancing out.

The eagle-eyed amongst you will have worked out that this is actually 7 sessions.

The ‘live’ sessions will be approximately an hour and will include:

– 5 minutes – Warm Up
– 5 minutes – Mobility/Stretching
– 5 minutes – Basic Morris Stepping
– 15 minutes – Core workout to aid balance while dancing
– 15 minutes – Plyometric Workout – to add some power and spring into your step
– 10 minutes – Cool Down
– 5 minutes – Q&A

The previous sessions are on the YouTube Playlist: Return to Dancing Fitness Playlist

– Week 1 was a ‘live’ session’ including Warm Up and Cool Down.

– For Weeks 2 to 5 please do: Warm Up / ‘Easy’ or ‘Hard’ option for that week / Cool Down.

Your host

Rhys Boorman is a PE Teacher, and while in lockdown has kept up his fitness by completing weekly core and plyometrics sessions similar to the ones which he will be leading in the workshop.  He has had plenty of practice at leading unruly groups due to his job as a PE Teacher!

He also likes to regularly run half marathons for fun, and is currently in the middle of marathon training.

Rhys dances with multiple teams including: Mad Jacks Morris, Sussex Junction Morris, Clausentum Morris, Harlequin Morris & Berkshire Bedlam.
