SOSA In The City Inspires Londoners to s-t-a-r-t dancing!
“Wow… SOSA in the City was on ANOTHER LEVEL, we absolutely loved dancing in the city with you! It was incredible to see my dream of a truly inclusive class for EVERYBODY becoming such a fabulous reality – and I am delighted to leave a lasting legacy that enables Londoners to be more active through dance.” Katy Barrow
It started with simple idea, but one that I soon realised would need a BIG plan… to bring people of all ages, abilities, shapes, sizes, faiths & cultures together from across London (and around the UK) to dance together – for FREE – in one fully inclusive class, in one amazing venue!
So, I applied for special funding from no less than the Mayor of London Fund, which was accepted almost immediately – as you can imagine, I was just so excited. And so SOSA In The City was born!
Then, with the empowering support from EMD UK (the governing body for group exercise), I knew that I could start to think even BIGGER… Right from the start, I wanted to feel that SOSA In The City would achieve something signiﬁcant and enduring, as well as creating the most amazing one-off, FREE community dance event.
And what better legacy to leave than enabling TEN fabulous London instructors to train for FREE too?
Then they could launch their own classes and enable everyone looking for an authentic, international dance ﬁtness class to join us! And the rest, as they say, is history!!!
Last Sunday we staged this very special session, and it was phenomenal! And it’s really clear to me that SOSA In The City : London will be remembered for years to come by everyone who danced with us… not only in person but those who joined in as we went LIVE on Facebook!
You can see from our many wonderful photos and videos precisely what it looks and feels like to ‘Dance Yourself Happy’ – so thank you, Lucy Baker, Don Barrow and Carol Ramsey for these amazing memories!
But of course, what are memories unless we can share them?
So, I’ve personally put together all the ‘best bits’ into a special SOSA In The City video review so we can all do just that. I love watching it, again and again… and hope you will too.
And if all this inspires you to start dancing, we would love to SOSA with you! To ﬁnd a class near you, just pop your postcode into our Class Locator
