National Championships 2015

Every two years the Keep Fit Association holds it’s National Championship competition highlighting the talent and skills of its members. Extending over two days, up to 400 competitors perform in solo, duo, trio and teams across eight categories of Fitness, Exercise, Movement and Dance.

National Championships 2015

Competitors from around the country gathered in Nottingham on the 9th and 10th May for our bi- annual championships competition. For many years the Championships have been held in Blackpool and then at Southport but rising costs meant the Keep Fit Association board had to find an another  venue.

The Albert Hall in Nottingham is styled similarly to the Royal Albert Hall in London but on a smaller scale and is situated in the middle of the country with good transport links and plenty of hotels and restaurants nearby.

The two days were filled with different sections competing. The standard of performances by the competitors was breath taking and the choreography and their interpretation of  their chosen music was  outstanding. The judges must have had a difficult job marking each competitor. The audience clapped and cheered competitors from their home areas which must have boosted the competitors’ performance greatly.

The places were announced at the end of each day’s competition and the winners of each section performed again giving the audience the opportunity to appreciate the beauty of their items a second time.

If you were not part of the audience, you missed a great display by the  highly talented individuals that we have in our organisation. Local areas and regions must be very proud of their members and teachers who entered the competition.

Official photographs were taken by Chris Christodoulou of all performances and presentations.
