Dance Fitness classes are always a hit at summer festivals and it seems that ChiChi Fit has been top of the pickings for many this summer. The fun, showbiz sparkle and pzazz of ChiChi Fit, is perfect for the colourful joy that people expect from their festival experience.

ChiChi Creative Director, Danella, led ChiChi’s Broadway Fitness classes at Cornbury Festival in Oxfordshire and many of our incredible ChiChi instructors will be leading classes at festivals around the UK throughout July and August.

It’s fun for our instructors to have these opportunities, and of course a great way to keep earning and teaching whilst many class regulars are off on their summer hols!

Our motto is…

“to sparkle, shine, move, sweat and feel fabulous!”

Check out all our ChiChi Programmes to find your perfect musical theatre exercise class:

Behind the scenes

ChiChi Fit was created by Danella. With a background in musical theatre and dance, Danella combined her love of musical shows and performing with her passion for fitness and wellbeing. By combining these skills and passions, she realized she could keep fit and have fun, all whilst feeling like a Broadway star!

After much research, Danella found a gap in the market for a Broadway (style) workout that is NOT a dance class and is NOT an aerobics class set to a playlist of showtunes. 

In ChiChi Fit you’ll experience a new FEEL of fitness. The cleverly crafted choreography empowers you to feel and look like a dancer, even if you’re not one!  Dancing through 10-12 tracks each class you’ll feel the power of the Revolution with routines from Les Miserable and Hamilton. You’ll feel the strength of friendship with songs from Wicked, Rent and Frozen. The wild, explosive energy of the 60’s from the musical Hairspray, along with the glitz and old-school glamour of Puttin’ On The Ritz, among so many more.

Danella has been teaching Musical Theatre for over 20 years so she knows how to get you feeling fit and happy through dance!

I highly recommend it to anyone and everyone!” Barby, Cheltenham


“FAB-U-LOUS! ChiChi is a great cardio and toning work out with routines that are easy to follow but choreography that makes you feel like you’re on a West End stage! Suitable for all abilities, and great fun classes.” Louise, Gloucestershire

02 it was so much fun

“Just did the most fabulous class this morning, filled with classic show tunes, razmataz and sparkle. I worked so hard but it never felt like hard work because it was so much fun!” Rachel, Cheltenham

03 I burned more calories

“In today’s class I burned more calories, spent 9 mins at my peak heart rate and had a higher average & max heart rate than when I do one of my gym’s workouts at home! Plus, it was a lot more fun than burpees! So, dancing really is good for you.” Louise, Cheltenham

03 Totally fabulous

“ChiChi Fit is totally fabulous! I highly recommend it for anyone looking to get fit and have some fun. The uplifting tunes coupled with Danella’s infectious enthusiasm are a winning combination. I am not able to attend live classes usually so I have really appreciated the online classes during lockdown; they have kept me going and lifted my spirits!” Suki, Stroud

04 Highlight Of My Week

“A ChiChi Fit class is the highlight of my week! The combination of the feel-good songs and a proper sweaty workout makes it something I never want to miss. Danella’s enthusiasm and energy is infectious. I can’t stop telling all my friends about how good ChiChi Fit is.” Natalie, Cheltenham

05 Everyone needs to be doing ChiChi fit

“I love ChiChi fit. As a professional musical theatre performer, it keeps my fitness levels up where they need to be so I’m prepared for the next job. Alongside that I keep check of calories burnt on my iWatch and nothing else burns as many calories! You don’t notice as you’re having such a great time dancing to the best songs from shows. Everyone needs to be doing ChiChi Fit.” Myke, London

Trying a new fitness class can be seriously intimidating. What if everyone there is a regular and you have no clue what you’re doing? However, there’s NO NEED TO WORRY! In ChiChi FIT you don’t need any prior dance experience. It is suitable for all dance and fitness abilities. For starters you’ll get swept up in the music, feeling like you are part of a show! A ChiChi FIT class will include a variety of faster and slower songs, bringing up the intensity and then scaling it back. Mixing it up keeps your body guessing and gives you the best work-out and gets the best results. There’s a warm-up and a cool-down and some effective strength and toning using resistance bands.

Yes! This is a unique fitness experience for your body and mind. We provide an intense, 45 minute Broadway (style) workout (that will make you sweat!). As they say, ‘time flies when you’re having fun’ and so 45 minutes will fly by and you won’t even feel like you’re working out! We also offer ChiChi ENCORE which is a lower intensity class.

Many of our instructors offer a free trial class, so why not come along and see if it’s for you.

A bottle of water, gym clothes and your sparkle!
