Shelley Harmer - SwingTrain

Shelley Harmer

Hi, I’m Shelley!
Six years ago, I was at a place in my life where I was working full time in the office and at home and felt like I needed a hobby, something for myself, something where I wasn’t mummy or a wife or a subordinate in a nine to five job. My partner suggested that I try a dance class, as I’d always had a passion for dancing. I was nervous at first because I had always thought that my petite stature would be an issue when it came to partnered dancing. A friend suggested that I try a lindy class, so that’s exactly what I did, and I’ve never looked back since!
Lindy is such a fun and joyful dance, that it’s impossible for you not fill from the toes up with positive energy. It was just what I needed at the time and I simply fell in love with the moves, music and social network that I ultimately gained, not to mention the wonders it did for my mum tum!
Fitness is something that is incredibly significant to me, as having suffered with M.E. for several years, I understand the importance of keeping your body moving, especially now I’m 30 (shh don’t tell anyone)!
SwingTrain is the perfect balance between dance and fitness and I can’t wait to bring it to East Sussex and show my amazing town of Eastbourne that life don’t mean a thing if you ain’t got that swing!
