Dance Class – Holiday Themed and Fat Positive!

Last year Jeanette DePatie and I re-wrote a bunch of holiday songs to make them fat positive, including Jingle Bell Rock, which we turned into My Body Rocks. This year, I created a little dance routine to it.

Below are links for the dance classes – there is a seated and a standing version, each video contains a little dance class to learn the moves as well as a dance through.

If you feel like it, I would love for you to make a video of you dancing to this and post it in the comments and/or anywhere you want! Of course you can make the video while watching the my dance through, or you can download the music itself at the link below and do my choreography or your own thing. (Feel free to tag me: IG: @RagenChastain Twitter @DancesWithFat)

Have fun and happy dancing!
