Diverse Dance MIX (DDMIX) is dance fitness by Darcey Bussell. It is a new full body aerobic workout based on a wide range of different dance styles with easy to follow steps. Choreographed by Darcey Bussell and Nathan Clarke, it uses its own commissioned music, is great fun, and stimulates the body and mind with it's variety.

Using their extensive knowledge of dance, Darcey and Nathan provide a ‘flavour’ of over 20 different genres ranging from line dance to jive and from Bollywood to Charleston. Each genre has a different cardio rating and body emphasis.

The 2-3 minute genres are combined to form numerous 45-50 minute programs and with a variety of aerobic levels and complexity. The programs suit a wide ranging clientele of all abilities and everybody finds styles they like.

Darcey says “I really enjoy working out when I am fully distracted by a fun and entertaining routine, with great music and the camaraderie of a group class. What’s great is that diversity stimulates not just the body, but also the mind. This is the core philosophy behind DDMIX. I hope you’ll join us.”
