Regular column from South Holland Centre in Spalding.

Get in shape for summer at South Holland Centre when the latest fitness craze to sweep the UK – ‘Aerial Dance’ – starts on Tuesday evenings.

Anyone aged 12 to adult can work on their physical fitness, core strength and flexibility through learning aerial techniques on hoop equipment and silks (two long pieces of fabric which you wrap around yourself while striking poses in the air!).

Both hoops and silks are suspended from a ceiling rig and the entire body gets a full workout through mounting, climbing, dismounting and moving into routines.

Class tutor Lauren Williams from Arts NK says the sessions proved so popular at their studios in North Hykeham that they wanted to branch out to the south of the county, in association with Transported.

The South Holland Centre’s top floor hall was considered an ideal location, so after a site visit they arranged for the rig to go up, ordered landing mattresses and organised a free taster class on Tuesday, April 19 at 6.30pm.

Anyone wanting to give it a try should call the Box Office on 01775 764777. Weekly classes follow from April 26 at £6 per week.

But those who prefer to keep their feet firmly on the ground may find making embroidery hoop mobiles a safer bet!

Live and Learn’s Spring crafty programme starts at 10am on Friday, April 15 and is followed by classes making pewter cards in May and photo montage art in June.

Places can be booked direct with Live and Learn on 01780 722148.

There’s a full programme of activities for all ages taking place at South Holland Centre.
