Have your say

TRY your hand at the latest dance craze.

Bokwa has proved hugely popular in the US for combining cardio conditioning, strength training and flexibility in an exercise dance class.

It merges boxing manoeuvres with African dance.

Now instructor Andrea Tweedy is helping to introduce Wearsiders to Bokwa.

Classes will be held at Studio Fitness, Leechmere Industrial Estate, on Mondays at 6.30pm.

They also take place at Jupiter Gym, in Easington Village, on Wednesdays at 6.30pm and Saturdays at 10.15am.

People can also “sweat the alphabet and dance the digits” at Eastlea Community Centre, Seaham, on Thursdays at 7.30pm. Classes are £3.50 per person.

A taster class, costing £1, will take place on May 14 at Studio Fitness, Leechmere Industrial Estate at 6.30pm.
