If you're thinking of joining a dance group and still undecided about which genre to go for, have a look at the NHS Choices Learn to Dance interactive tool. This can be found on their Dance for Fitness page (external link). This fun tool will guide you through the moves from Grease to Bollywood moves to dance for the over 60s. Once you've tried these, why not join one of the many dance groups in Haringey to keep up the hard work.
