Allison - Glasgow Line Dancing Instructor

Allison – Glasgow Line Dancing Instructor

I formed Glasgow Line Dancing in November 2015 basically turning my hobby into a small business. I love what I do and thanks to Wendy Allan (Irwin) for introducing me to line dancing. I have taught various fitness classes off and on throughout my career and feel this is a great addition to my repertoire. My classes were launched on the 16th of November 2015 in Busby and at that very first session only 5 women came through the door.

These are the feet of the ladies who attended my first ever line dance class held in Busby Parish Church

I decided in 2012 to retrain as a specialised fitness instructor for the older adult. After some research, I decided to look at Laterlife Training courses and Cardiac Rehabilitation. I am a qualified OTAGO Home Exercise Instructor, Postural Stability Instructor and Cardiac Rehabilitation Instructor. I have attended various CPD courses such as Osteoporosis, COPD, Mental Health and Working with Individuals with Visual Impairments. I work for East Renfrewshire Leisure and Culture teaching on their Vitality programme. I also do private work as well. I have lead exercise sessions as part of the VIOLET study for adults over 60 with visual impairments. I am also a qualified Primary school teacher.
