Former Rhinos cheerleader to help Yorkshire dance through coronavirus outbreak

Roxy Gallagher, a former cheerleader for Leeds Rhinos, will provide free online dance classes to your living room every day in a bid to keep the nation physically and mentally fit through the coronavirus epidemic.

The founder of ‘Roxy Stage School’ will go live from her Facebook page throughout the day from Tuesday 24th March onwards and provide lessons for people of all ages and abilities.

Starting at 11am with chair-based dance classes for over 50’s, Roxy will move on to dance for toddlers and minis (ages 2-6) at 1pm before rounding off with a junior class (ages 7+) at 4pm.

A senior dancer for the Rhinos throughout the 2010s, Roxy is a former presenter for Leeds Rhinos TV, Serious About Rugby League TV and was named Miss West Yorkshire in 2018.

Her aim is to help put the county, nation and wider world through their paces in a home-centred workout that is sure to keep participants on their toes.

“There is no better way for people to maintain a positive mindset through these challenging times than to stay active and keeping fit,” said Roxy.

“It’s going to be easier now than ever for people to become lazy and lose their purpose so I want to use social media in the right way, to encourage people of all ages to improve on a daily basis.

“My goal is to help people feel the sense of accomplishment they would get going to the gym or a sports class in their own homes.”
