ReelFit Launches March 19
Brisbane dancers and fitness fanatics will be bursting with excitement when the highly anticipated ReelFit is launched on Saturday 19 March.
The launch night will begin at 7:30pm at the Redcliffe RSL and will showcase Brisbane’s best Irish dancers in their last performance before they head off to the World Irish Dancing Championships. RSVP to the ReelFit Launch Party event on Facebook.
For the first time in eight years, the pounding feet and swirling music of Riverdance that has tapped its way onto the world stage, returns to Australia for a national farewell tour coming to Brisbane for a strictly limited season, from April 12 – 17.
Scoil and Rince is offering you the chance to win one of three double passes to the opening night of the “Riverdance – The Farewell Tour“, at the Lyric Theatre, QPAC on Tuesday April 12th at 7:30pm. Just attend the ReelFit launch for your chance to win. Other great raffles and lucky door prizes are also on offer, including free vouchers to ReelFit classes. Tickets available at the door: $12.50 for adults and $7.50 children, $35 per family.
ReelFit is the new high-energy fitness sensation that blends Irish dancing with fun and fitness and its launch will coincide with St Patricks Day celebrations and the arrival of Riverdance.
Those who love the energy, excitement and exhilaration of Irish dancing can finally find their fix in ReelFit which is aimed at adults who are looking for a challenging and fun way to get fit. The technical and rhythmic steps of the traditional solo and ceili (group) dances have been blended with core strength and fitness exercises to help you increase your stamina and tone up those legs and abs.
The elegant soft shoe dances will have you floating through the air with ease, while you feel your heart pump to the thundering beats of the hard shoe dances. Each week you’ll progress as you master the intricate foot work and learn the choreography of the traditional dances like the reel, slip jig, jig and hornpipe.
ReelFit aims to bring the social aspect of Irish dancing into the world of fitness and is the brainchild of Breeda Peirce, the founder of one of Brisbane’s largest and most successful Irish dancing schools, Scoil Ard Rince. Breeda says “you’ll meet new friends and have a ball as you practice the challenging Ceili dances together.”
“ReelFit makes exercising fun,” says Breeda “you don’t even realise you’re getting a workout because you’re too busy concentrating on the steps, there’s no exercise class like it!”
“Many of us danced as we grew up but have since given up. There are so many people who want to rekindle their love of dance and get fit at the same time” says Breeda.
“If you’ve watched the amazing athleticism of the dancers in Riverdance and wished you could be like that then sign up for ReelFit!” says Breeda.
“Don’t be worried if you’ve never danced before, ReelFit is for dancers of all abilities and ages. We make it very easy starting with basics and building up to the more complex steps later on.” says Breeda.
ReelFit will initially launch in Redcliffe with Bulimba and Sunshine Coast soon to follow.
