New choreography and content tonight, feeling fresh and fantastic! Join us..... email [email protected]
As you know, Helen, since a car accident in 2015 I have suffered with chronic pain due to a Grade II Whiplash injury.

Before the 6:15pm contemporary stretch class tonight I would rate my pain level as 7 out of 10 - I had to push myself to get changed and join you online...

I am glad I did! Immediately after the class I am scoring it 1 out of 10. This is not the first time I have experienced these results and I am so glad you’ve opened up your classes online since I moved area from the home of DYBO.

Due to the pandemic lockdown, my osteopath, Liz, and gym are no longer accessible to me for my pain management so you have been a saviour.

So, so many thank you’s!! 😁
Happy Birthday Nikkie Hawkins-Riozzi wishing you the best day ever ###
Totally blown away by how well these beautiful independencer's did learning and performing this routine in 75mins. This piece has a message about the sanctity of love with various spiritual and religious symbols hinted at throughout out. I feel they deliver our message!
If anyone wants a ticket for next Sunday let me know. I can no longer make it as have to work :( x
Another fabulous day at Independance. Fun routines, lots of laughter and easy choreography. Am definitely back for the next one in December x

A massive thank you to everyone who attended INDEPENDANCE yesterday. What a great afternoon!

How good did it feel to attend a face to face dance event again! For many of us, it has been at least 18 months in the waiting.

Your energy was amazing - we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did.

A big thank you also to Jo Ali, who travelled down from Leeds to be our guest presenter. She delivered two exceptional classes!

Below are some photos from the day and we will be posting some videos in the week.

Instructors – do you Know your Worth?

Following on from our very successful webinar on imposter syndrome, we're now asking instructors to Know your Worth!

Know Your Worth is about exactly that. How to recognise and become what makes you that ‘go to’ fitness professional and why you are right to be paid accordingly!

Host Sue Wilkie is joined this week by Helen Carpenter-Waters, an
award-winning fitness professional and Director of the community-based fitness and dance company, DYBO Health & Fitness

To get the most from this session be prepared to respond to challenging questions, get involved and interact with Helen and the group.
