SOSA Dance Fitness
At the heart of our world and our SOSA family is the one, the only and the original dance ﬁtness class – low impact but high energy!
We begin each class by going straight into a beautiful dancer’s warm-up to prepare your body for what follows next… as you dance around the world with a playlist and combination of routines that is as unique as you and your instructor, from our special SOSA choreography hub.
You could be dancing everything from an Argentine Tango to a Brazilian Zouk, a Cha-Cha-Cha to a Viennese Waltz, Salsa to Jive, Calypso to Quickstep, Rumba to Rock n’ Roll… plus many, many more!
And, because it’s SOSA, you just as easily be dancing to iconic songs sung by the legendary likes of Frank Sinatra, Elvis, Tina Turner, Ricky Martin and The Jacksons, to the most beautiful authentic Latin beats, right up to today’s hottest artists like Mark Ronson, Clean Bandit, Ed Sheeran, Daniel Santacruz and Marc Anthony – all in one class!
Your SOSA Dance Fitness instructor will walk you all through the key steps before dancing each routine, so you’ll start learning and developing your technique right away. Then, every time you SOSA after that, you will feel yourself getting more into the rhythm of the dance and that you’re achieving more out of every beat!
Each and every step that you take, along with arms and body styling, is authentic to the original dance style – with a sassy SOSA twist. There are plenty of progressions and adaptations throughout the class too, so that everyone – from beginner to the more experienced dancer – gets the best SOSA experience.
At the end of the class, we dance to either one or two gorgeous cool-down tracks, depending on the pace and length of your class (45mins to one hour) with lots of wonderful slow dance stretches to relax your muscles and make you feel good long after it’s all over… until the next time!
So… are you ready to SOSA with us? Then find your nearest class now!

SOSA Dance Fitness U16s
Created to inspire 8-16 year-olds to get up and dance, this fantastic class is totally tailored to you if you’re in this age group – from the choice of dance moves and music tracks to the credentials of your qualiﬁed instructor.

From Dancehall, Soca, Commercial, Street, Salsa, Latin and Ballroom, your choreography is fun-packed and high energy with the coolest moves and body styling.
SOSA playlists revolve around the best dance music. We’ve lined up loads of superb playlists, just for under-16s, with the latest chart-topping tracks – some while they’re still on their way up! Our choreography hub has some amazing routines that you can never hear enough of too – from the likes of Ed Sheeran, Stony, DNCE, Little Mix, Girls Aloud, Fleur East, Jason Mraz… and so the A-list goes on!
Each class is designed to be fully inclusive for all abilities and ﬁtness levels, and all the moves are low impact to be safe and enjoyable for everyone.
Like us, our SOSA under-16s instructors are really passionate about enabling children and teenagers to enjoy being active and to be excited about learning to dance.
Each instructor has been trained in our specially adapted international dance ﬁtness programme by the SOSA Pro Team, as well as being required to hold at least one qualiﬁcation that speciﬁcally relates to teaching dance to children. They all have their DBS check in place too, for that extra parental reassurance.

Seated SOSA Dance Fitness
This groundbreaking new concept of a genuinely totally inclusive dance ﬁtness class is a real ‘ﬁrst’, and proving that dance IS for EVERYONE is our proudest achievement yet!
Our professional training ‘model’ has already been recognised by ActiveIQ, even before its ofﬁcial launch, and we know that you will have a lot of fun with Seated SOSA – increasing your conﬁdence levels and making some new friends along the way.
This exciting new class has been created to be adaptable to suit all abilities and mobility levels, as well as a wide range of health issues and medical conditions. As an all-inclusive class, it is perfect for exercise referrals, injury rehab and dance-loving seniors as well, and if you need to participate in a supported way with a carer, you can!
So, if you’ve experienced barriers that have stopped you fully participating in and enjoying a dance ﬁtness class in the past, we’re thrilled to say that the arrival of Seated SOSA puts an end to that, for good.
We’ve designed this class format to be really ﬂexible and accessible, with routines that can be broken down into easy-to-learn sections with different speeds of music to suit absolutely everybody.
Just like our other SOSA classes, Seated SOSA playlists are second to none. Your class could feature anything from iconic hits from past decades right through to today’s latest ﬂoor-ﬁllers.
And, so that you can feel conﬁdent about your instructor, you’ll be pleased to hear that we will only train expert ﬁtness and dance professionals. Each person has to have passed a special, higher level qualiﬁcation, be properly insured to teach a fully inclusive class and to hold a current DBS check too.
But the best news must be that with Seated SOSA you get a fun, safe, effective workout without it feeling remotely like ‘work’… you’ll be too busy singing along, shaking your maracas, dancing yourself happy – and gaining a new skill, for life!
If you’d like to know as soon as our new Seated SOSA classes are launching where you live, please get in touch so we can let you know right away.
And if you’re a dance teacher or fitness professional who would like to train in this fantastic new programme, don’t delay in booking onto one of our Instructor Training Courses as places are limited.
