West Village has teamed up with qualified Pilates instructor and dance teacher Katie Dickens to offer free Hip Hop Pilates classes.

The classes are being held in the historic Peters Ice Cream Factory building at West Village in West End every Tuesday from 12.15pm until September 8.

The unique style of fitness classes were developed by Miss Dickens, from East Brisbane’s The Transform Method studio, and combine the benefits of traditional Pilates with the high intensity of Hip Hop dance moves and music.

West Village Project Director, Andrew Thompson, said the half-hour classes were a perfect opportunity for West End workers to get fit and meet new friends in their lunch break.

“The classes are suitable for beginners and are designed to give people a fun introduction to this new style of fitness while having time to travel to and from their West End workplace,” Mr Thompson said.

The free Hip Hop Pilates classes at West Village are being held every Tuesday from 12.15pm until September 8 at the UBODY Studio on Level 1 of the old Peters Ice Cream Factory building at 93 Boundary Street, West End.

Places are limited and participants must first register by visiting westvillage.com.au/event or email info@westvillage.com.au. Those attending should wear comfortable clothes and sneakers and bring a towel and a yoga mat.
