MANY know of Michele Saunders as Steven´s wife and partner who runs the much respected Little Geranium little restaurants in La Cala de Mijas and Marbella.
What readers may not know is that Michele is a professional ballet dancer (Royal Academy of Arts) and she has recently been working along side celebrity Strictly Come Dancing Stars Ian Waite and Natalie Lowe to launch Fit Steps in Costa del Sol.
This fitness dance training created by Ian Waite Natalie Lowe and Olympian Mark Foster not only gets you fit but trains you to dance like a Strictly dancer too!
Michele commented, “This kind of Ballroom and Latin dancing is totally different from the original training I had as a Ballerina. All the steps, walks, postures and hip movements are almost the complete opposite to ballet and so it has been difficult for me to adjust but I love this kind of dancing, it is so full of passion and elegance.
“I was both delighted and surprised to have been awarded the two highest accolades for Fit Steps by Ian Waite.”
Michele has been flying back and forth to the UK and she recently took her final exams. She was delighted to have been awarded two Golds for excellence (the highest grade) one gold for Fit Steps ( high impact dance fitness training) and one for Fit Steps Fab (lower intensity, ideal for older people but a bit more complex).
So now Michele is a highly qualified Fit Steps teacher endorsed by Strictly stars and she plans to launch her first classes in January 2018 at The Moonlight Studios in Marbella.
Her first student could perhaps be Steven so that he could learn to dance and cook at the same time!
