Welcome to Strollercise

Strollercise was created by Samantha Williams in March 2016. It is a Dance / Fitness programme which takes its name from the girls ‘strolling’ in R&R clubs in the ‘50’s, and, as we do 6,000-7,000 steps in our 1 hour class, it became a form of exercise, hence 'Strollercise’ (6,000 steps is equal to walking 3 miles.)
The Stroll was both a slow rock 'n' roll dance, and a song, that was popular in the late 1950s. Billboard first reported that "The Stroll" might herald a new dance craze similar to the "Big Apple" in December 1957. While a couple of the 'strolls' have been around for years on the Rock & Roll scene, many new ones have been added and choreographed by Sam.
Sam has been around the world of the 50s and Rock and Roll for over 35 years Jiving and strolling, so she knows her stuff!.
This programme is excellent for the brain as you need to learn steps and this can, potentially, lower the risk of Dementia, plus it has the added benefit of being an enjoyable way to burn calories.
All our classes are 1 hour long and our participants are aged 14 and upwards, with our oldest being 90.
