Mum launches 1980s-themed dance classes with just £100

Inspired by the movie Fame, a nimble mum who used a spare £100 to start a 1980s-themed dance class in her village hall, told how her nifty moves have been such a hit she has expanded across the UK and plans to launch abroad.

Disappointed by the dearth of fun fitness classes available and concerned that her work as a contracted dance movement psychotherapist might dry up, Hebe Alloun, 48, decided to "kill two birds with one stone" by creating Mum Dance - a dance class which embodies "all things 80s".

With the mantra, "Let's Get Physical", the entrepreneur donned funky work-out gear and invited fellow mums to "Get Down On It" and join her for a retro dance class near where she lives with her computer programmer husband Jonathan, 44, and two children, in Bradford-on-Avon, Wiltshire.
