WARM UPS FOR RUNS
It's always fun the get the crowd going at these events! I am honoured the be an ambassador for 'This Girl Can' and have led the warm up for their International Women's Day event for the past two years. I was also delighted to lead a Zumba Gold warm up for the Alzheimer's Society Memory Walk (2019). I also led the warm up for local blood cancer charity Bright Red for four years.
ANNUAL iVAMOS! FESTIVAL
FitMixx have been partipating every year in the Vamos! latin festival since 2012. Each year it is slightly differnt but always includes us donning carnival fancy dress and taking part in a Mardi Gras parade in the city centre. This is followed by a family friendly picnic, where Katie does a free Zumba session for the community. One year we did a Zumba flashmob of over 100 people at Grey's Monument!
DANCE-ALONG CINEMA SCREENINGS
We've had some fabulous fun at local venue 'Dance City' attending dance-along screenings, in fancy dress of course! So far we've attending screenings for The Greatest Showman, Chicago, Mamma Mia and Grease.
ANNUAL WINTER WIGGLE CHRISTMAS PARTY
The 'Winter Wiggle' is an annual FitMixx institution. The Wiggle has been running since 2014.
We take over a local golf club for a private party with either a DJ or live singer, hot buffet, Christmas party props and LOADS of fun and dancing!
