I have recently returned to the UK, living in Brighton, after 30 years living in France near Paris. My quirky, British creativity is combined with the French confidence to be myself, «Oh La La»!
An ex-gymnast, I trained as a fitness instructor in France. My experience includes working as a trainer at the Sports School for 10 years teaching and helping new instructors. I am a presenter in France and have created, and been part of, events in France and abroad.
I started teaching dance inspired fitness classes and my passion is musicals, theatre and costumes. I wanted to bring this into my classes and the opportunity arose when I was asked to choreograph productions at the International School in Fontainebleau. Over 15 years I created around 20 amateur musicals, plays and shows responsible for teaching and organising a cast, staging and lighting.
My creation «Showdance by Charlotte Chazel» followed and I took it to events across the world. «Dance Yourself Happy» is something I truly believe in.
I love teaching live but I am now teaching online and virtual events too. Let’s make the new normal exceptional.
I have recently choreographed the dance section of the Sports England Campaign «This Girl Can» to help more girls and women participate in sporting activities.
I have been teaching in both French and English for the last 20 years. I have dual nationality and believe this enhances my teaching.
I have a love for life, people, fitness, dance, fun and creating. One of my favourite quotations is «Fabulous and flawed is better than perfect and boring». I want to help you laugh a little louder, smile a little bigger and live just a little better. Let me help you feel fabulous and be your own kind of beautiful. Life is a beautiful sport… let’s start living.
