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 workout sessions to focus on improving your fitness in preparation for (finally!) returning to dance practice and/or dancing out.

The sessions will be approximately an hour and will be structured as the following:

– 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

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.
