Fun day out promises dancing route to a healthy heart

Dance-a-thon fun for all set for Lossiemouth

Tribal belly dancing will mix with line dancing and Zumba at a fun event being held in Moray this month that will also raise funds for one of Scotland’s most important charities.

Chest, Heart and Stroke Scotland will be the beneficiaries of a ‘Dance-a-thon’ being held in the Lossiemouth Town Hall as a tribute to the memory of local fitness trainer Sarah Louise Grigor’s father, who passed away after suffering a sudden stroke.

The all-day event on Saturday, January 31 will feature a mixture of dancing forms – all of which will aid in maintaining fitness but always with the underlying ‘fun’ aspect.

Sarah Louise said: “I wanted to do something to that would help raise funds for Chest, Heart and Stroke Scotland in memory of my dad – and I thought what better than to hold a fun day in the town hall that would demonstrate ways that people of all ages can be active while enjoying themselves.

“I have a mixture of Zumba, line-dancing and even tribal belly dancing which is growing in popularity right now.”

The Dance-a-thon is being held on Saturday, January 31 from 10am through to 6pm – tickets for the entire day cost £12 but there is also a coffee morning/afternoon for those wishing to just drop in for a chat and see what is going on with a cover charge for that set at £2.
