On Saturday 8th April 2017 the sun was shining brightly in Cambridge for Steph’s Hen Weekend. An incredibly cheerful group of Hens arrived at Bodywork Company Dance Studios ready to strut their stuff for ninety minutes and boy did they boogie!!
I’d already been told that Steph and Si’s favourite song was “Shake it off” by Taylor Swift and couldn’t have been happier to choreograph a routine for the Hen’s! I later found out that the routine would be performed at the wedding and they wanted to include Si in too, what a bonus!!
All of the Hens were so full of energy and really raring to go. The atmosphere was buzzing, everyone got involved and worked so hard on the routine, it looked awesome by the time we’d finished. We even added in the section where Steph would go and grab Si to join in. They planned to freestyle in the middle of the circle formed by the hens at the bridge of the song (My ex-man brought his new girlfriend She's like, “oh my God” etc etc. I could really imagine the two of them having a really good time dancing to the song in the middle of the circle).
The finished product was absolutely brilliant and I’m looking forward to seeing a recording of the routine on the big day itself!
Wishing Steph and Si lots of love, health, wealth and happiness for the future and enjoy the big day in June!

13 hens made their way to the Waldorf Hotel DW Fitness studio enjoy a cheer session as part of their hen party day.
They've just come from an amazing brunch and we're worried they wouldn't be able to move.
But these worries were quickly gone once Amona opened her big bag full of sparkly pom-poms! Everyone suddenly got excited and jumped across the room. We were ready to go!
We started of with a little warm up to get prepared for the cheer fun ahead.
The organiser hen Emma us requested "Shake it off" by Taylor Swift for the bride to be Martine and the rest of the hens.
Soon we were in the middle of learning fun moves and friend out a great dance choreography.
By the end of it, the group performed the whole dance, pictures were taken and the hen also rocked a thigh stunt!
I can only say BRAVO to these amazing ladies and what they've learned in such a short time. It looked like everyone had a blast and the recording plus loads of pictures will surely be a great memory, which they might share with other at the wedding in September
I had a great afternoon teaching and wish them all the best!!!

I had an absolutely great time taking this cheer party in North London, we all had such a great time!
This time we had just over a dozen seven years olds, for Lilas Birthday. We started of with a warm up, some cardio pom pom moves to get the pulse rate up, then we did some stretching.
We then started to learn the routine I had prepared to 'Cheerleader - OMI' staring Lila. It incorporated some pom motions, some basic stunting, moving motions to different formations and some tumbling from Lila as she had a gymnastic background, and we wanted to show off her moves!
After we had spend about 45 minutes learning the routine, we took a break and played some games before our big performance to the parents at the end. Everyone had great fun playing the games, and it was nice to relax and have fun all together. We then brought the cake out and sang Lila Happy Birthday, with a big cheer at the end! Party bags were given out, and then it was time to give the parents a performance of what the kids had been working for and a chance to for them to film the routine. Everyone gave Lila a big cheer hug at the end.
The parents were very impressed with what their little ones had achieved in just a few hours.
Lila has decided she wants to be a competitive cheerleader now, Go Lila!

Today's Hen party was a Hip Hop dance routine and the chosen music was Baby Boy by Beyonce...you can't go wrong with Beyo!
The Hen and her friends were absolutely fantastic, they took on the challenge, they channeled their inner Beyonce's and threw their best moves on the lounge room floor!
I started the session with a gentle warm up followed by a stretch and than we went straight into the choreography. The mother of the hen decided to take pictures and enjoy the show while the ladies twerked, bounced, laughed, sang and sipped prosecco in their breaks to cool themselves off.
Time flew quickly (has it does whilst having a good time). The ladies were really happy with the Dance Party session and could not thank me enough for it ,which made my night since that was the main aim of the event.
Well done ladies :-)

This was a very energetic birthday party for 5 year old Lydia, who was a great DJ as well as dancer.
As the young guests arrived we wrote out name badges and had a freestyle boogy on the empty dance floor. It soon filled up and we began with some old-fashioned Hokey Kokey.
With a good mix of boys and girls we played a game of Grandmas footsteps, which the speedy boys were particularly good at. Then we did lots more creative dancing to some Disney tracks and played a great game of musical statues, with Lydia testing her guests ability to freeze mid-dance move!
The star of the party was the infamous Duck, duck, goose game where the chosen goose has to chase the player around the circle. There was great support for the race runners as we sat waiting for our turn to be picked.
Then there was a break for a fantastic Italian feast of pizza and pasta before more freestyle dancing, musical bumps and a game of limbo that turned into a conga line - there were that many participants!
Time to serenade the birthday girl as she blew out the candles on her 5 little cakes before home time.
Everyone was exhausted after all that dancing!
