DANCERS in Henley just couldn’t keep their feet still as they kept up with the music in a six-hour fit-a-thon.
DANCERS in Henley just couldn’t keep their feet still as they kept up with the music in a six-hour fit-a-thon. Members of the Henley Amateur Operatic and Dramatic Society took part in the event last Sunday to raise £1,300 for a new kitchen and boiler at the Studio in New Street. Exercises included power-walking, tap dancing, Latin dancing, abdomen work-outs and a keep-fit class.
Most participants selected individual classes but three people — Emma-Jane Taylor, Samantha Riley and Lisa Jane Reynolds — lasted the full six hours. Ms Taylor, a dance coach who runs Stageworks performing arts school at the Studio, said it had been “tiring but fun”.
“We managed to do it by providing cakes and coffee to keep everybody going,” she said.
“The atmosphere and the fun of it was very good and meant it was definitely worth the effort.”
Ms Riley, of Luker Avenue, said it was a “brilliant day that was well-structured and well-organised”.
She said: “It was really good fun but quite hard. It hurt the next day.”
