When I heard about the event I knew I had to go, so I teamed up with my partners in dance-floor crime, Caroline and Emma, and we hit the vaults at Waterloo armed with our very best disco lycra.
As we arrived we were given glowsticks and we headed through to the awesome underground venue. The lights dimmed, music started and the atmosphere was buzzing. Led by Loren Barclay and Shara Tochia (founder of Fitness Freak) the warm up started and we were soon pumping our glowsticks in time to the beats.
With music from Strike, the Prodigy, N-Trance and much more, it was easy to get into the party mood. The choreography was easy to follow, with armography, jumping and kicking, a toning section with lunges and side bends. The classic “big-fish little fish” move was also thrown in, and Loren even had us doing our best Carlton!
By the end of the rave there can’t have been a dry fluoro-lycra top in the room, and I’d burned over 450 calories without even realising it! Leaving the vaults, we were buzzing, so much so that I didn’t even care that I was getting strange looks from the late-evening London commuters in my disco get-up.
