Darcey Bussell leads city dance classes

Workers in the city were given the chance to practise pliés and pirouettes during their lunch break.

It was all part of a pop-up in Broadgate organised by the Royal Academy of Dance which offered free taster classes. 

Workshops included pilates and floor-barre and a routine inspired by the film 'Flashdance'. RAD president, Darcey Bussell also led a class in DDMix, a fitness brand she created which fuses different styles of dance.
