Ann Chen

Offering dance exercise classes

FitLine is an exercise routine that combines basic Ballroom Dance figures with QiGong (ancient Chinese exercise). The dances I teach range from American Smooth, Waltz, Rumba, Samba, ChaChaCha, Charleston, jive, Salsa, Bachata, Tango to Line Dancing. I use QiGong to cool down at the end of the class.

Ann believes the combination of Ballroom Dance and QiGong provides the most effective way to improve one's Chi (deep mindful breathing and movements in QiGong) and the dances provide a highly enjoyable way to reduce stress, improve mobility, flexibility, memory and confidence.

Through FitLines, Ann would like to show that everyone is able to dance and enjoy their dancing.

Ann is currently taking her IDTA (International Dance Teachers' Association) ballroom teaching examination. At the moment, she is qualified to teach ballroom waltz, quickstep and foxtrot.

She is also the founder and organiser of Tango Cotswold and teaches Argentine Tango (Salon Tango).

Ann also organises charity dance parties each year for local charities, which are always full of positive energy. She truly believes that the healing power of dance can be used as an integral part of the holistic way of life.
