Dance fever has come to Belfast as the city centre’s first and only dance-fitness studio opens on Fountain Street. Offering an eclectic mix of fitness classes that take inspiration from various genres such as hip hop, burlesque, ballet and Latin. Also on offer is a jazz and ballroom style workout designed by Strictly Come Dancing professionals.

Opened by local dancer, gymnast and businesswoman Erin Lyle, Aurora Studios puts the fun back into fitness with high intensity adult dance classes that tone, build strength and improve flexibility. Taking a holistic approach to health and wellbeing, the studio also offers classes in yoga and Pilates.

Beady-eyed G Spotters! may have noticed that I first came across Aurora a few months ago when I was reviewing alternative ways to exercise, and it got such a good response I wanted to follow-up with its official launch. And by the look of the incredibly flexible bods in the pictures the classes seem to be working! 

The Aurora Studios is open Monday – Saturday. Find out more here or Facebook or @aurorastudiosni
