JM DanceFit Celebrates 9 Years
Location: East Devon & Live Online
Date: October 2020
Happy 9th Birthday To Us!
We would like to say a huge big heartfelt thanks to all our truly inspirational JM DanceFit members and ZumbaKids for their continued support, patience, perseverance and kindness throughout these challenging and changeable times.
In October, we celebrated our 9th anniversary and, without them all, the continuation of our Zumba and FitSteps sessions simply would not be possible.
What achievements are we most proud of to date?
We are proud that for the past nine years JM DanceFit has provided the opportunity and inspiration for the local community, (of all ages and abilities), to experience and sustain an improved state of physical and mental health, leading to a more enjoyable and rewarding lifestyle.
We believe that this will have resulted in reducing demands, pressure and expense within the healthcare services.
JM DanceFit has provided fitness fun, and helped to make and maintain friendships, creating a great sense of camaraderie. This has been particularly important and appreciated throughout these unprecedented times.
Johanna’s teaching methods and successful results have led to raised community recognition of JM DanceFit. This has resulted in various organisations, including charities, requesting our support at their events in order to increase attendance, raise organisation awareness, and to provide fun entertainment, creating successful fundraising events.
By participating in these events, the JM DanceFit children and adult members are also given the important opportunity to socialise and to improve their self-confidence.
One of our most successful achievements was in March 2016. A team of thirty two JM DanceFit Zumba Divas from the Sidmouth, Sidford, Seaton, Newton Poppleford and Exeter classes successfully completed their three mile Sport Relief challenge by walking, zumbaring and wiggling their way around the Sidmouth Byes. The team of Adults and Children raised a massive £3,500 for the charity and held the top position on the UK Teams Mile Leaderboard for three weeks leading up to the event.
Our motto in class has always been ‘Alone we can do so little, Together we can do so much’ and, having raised the most funds in the whole of the UK as a team, demonstrates how when you put your minds together, there is no limit to what you can achieve. Together we have made a real difference.
We were also very proud to receive the Sid Valley Runner Up Business Award in 2015.
New members are very welcome to join our Live Online low or high impact sessions, which are currently attended by an age range of 3 to 93 years! To access the classes and for further information contact Johanna directly on 07739 518 587 or visit the ‘Timetable’ page of this website HERE.
