In late March, Surry Hills scored itself a fancy new rooftop gym and wellness space, Paramount Recreation Club. The stunning sky-high fitness centre, whose opening coincided with that of the new Paramount House Hotel underneath, has just launched a roster of events that are open to the public, including markets, workshops and workout classes.
And the first, happening on Friday, June 15 from 7.30–8.30, is a judgement-free dance class called Dance Memory.
Hosted by accessible dance school Groove Therapy, the class focuses on the connection between mind and body. Supposedly dancing is not only a great workout, but can also help improve cognitive ability and muscle memory. If you were looking for another excuse to tear up the dance floor, here it is.
It's also not just a class for experts. Whether you think you can dance, or know for a fact that you can't, you're welcome here — there are no mirrors, no judgement and great music.
Tickets to the dance class cost $30 and include a towel, access to the showers (they're fancy), locker use and a complimentary Rec Club Soda.
For further public Paramount Recreation Club events, keep an eye on the website.
