Our Association gives everyone the opportunity to meet in a spirit of fun whilst we exercise together. Through our classes, we have successfully changed the lives of a huge number of people by introducing them to fitness through exercise, movement and dance, so they become more energetic, healthier and happier.
The Keep Fit Association is a long-established body from 1956 and is dedicated to the provision of safe and effective exercise, movement and dance. KfaMoves exercise is based on Rudolph Laban’s principles providing an holistic workout with functional fitness through creative choreography.
Rudolph Laban’s ultimate aim was that movement was for all and that dance should give joy to people through moving together; an aim that the Keep Fit Association both embrace and promote in all that they do.
In the early 1960’s, the Keep Fit Association declared its training policy and has been offering classes for recreation, based on Laban’s analysis of movement, ever since.
Movement and dance ideas developed through the use of Laban’s analysis are limitless. It does not presuppose one style of movement and cannot be totally encompassed by one person. By considering the body as an instrument, using pathways, rhythms, and creating relationships, we offer ourselves the opportunity to become a whole person and our teachers offer that opportunity to their class members. Rudolph Laban’s study of movement, to which he devoted his whole life, is essentially concerned with a person in relation to the world and the people around them.
“Man is movement, movement is life”
