Before working with Fitness Formula, I already had a very successful competing career. It just seemed as though it never came together when it mattered most! I knew my goal for the year was to win the World Championships, and that I needed to make changes in my training to fix the flaws I had.
Through working with Fran, I got into the shape I wanted to be in physically, my stamina and carriage improved significantly, and I got the confidence in myself I needed to achieve my dream. I got the World Title I had been working my whole life for- and I can honestly say it was worth every minute!Nadine Martin Marie Connell School Of Irish Dancing
My name is Frances Dunne, and I am a Irish dancer, Personal Trainer, and Mindset Coach. I’m currently a lead dancer in Lord of the Dance, and in my competing years won many championships and prestigious awards.
I am also the creator of Fitness Formula for Irish Dance... Something I am most proud of! I've worked with those just starting out on their dancing journey, to World Champions at the top of their game.
What I have developed is a tried and tested route to improvement, and I aspire to guide dancers through whatever obstacles they're facing, in order to help them achieve their dreams, as I did mine.
Here's a little bit about my history, how I got to where I am today, and how it's going to help you 🙂
An online programme designed specifically to help you reach your goals...
I truly believe that every dancer should have an equal chance at success; but factors such as teacher:student ratio, competition for attention, and not enough resources for self learning; mean that it's simply not the case!
Well... I want to give you the best chance possible.
Fitness Formula for Irish Dance is a progressive program that takes you through the exact methods used by champions to aid them in achieving their goals.
'Fitness’ is very much a buzz word in the Irish Dancing community at the moment, but let me assure you, it is not just a passing phase!
Irish dancing is more than just a hobby. It is a sport. And like every other sport, needs supplementary exercises and training regimes in order for you to avoid burnout, prevent injury, and consistently improve your performance.
Through much trying and testing, I have developed for you a proven step by step programme that will cater for all your needs as an Irish Dancer, and help you on your way to becoming the best that you can be!
Fitness Formula is a programme that starts off right at the root of how and why you're doing things. Essentially making sure that you're mobile where you need to be, strong where it matters, and activating muscles in the right places.
This effects everything...
From technique, to ability to jump, to how well you get through a dance (and that's before even working on power and stamina)
We then move from fixing those basic movement barriers, to working on getting you more powerful in your dancing, then getting your stamina to where it needs to be.
As well as all those finer points such as, maintaining a necessary base level of strength and fitness, technicalities like posture, turnout, sharpness, getting high on your toes, and making sure your body is as responsive as possible through your nervous system.
All in a progressive manner, to avoid overload and aid actual improvement!
(Not to mention everything that goes along with it, nutritionally and psychologically speaking...)

To help you achieve your dreams, as I did mine 🙂
I always had a strong heavy round but really struggled with my light round as I found it really hard to get any lift. I couldn't straighten my legs on jumps and just didn't have any bounce at all really! I was really hoping to improve my strength and power and finally make the podium at the worlds.Ciara Loughran
After being on the podium at every other major I really wanted to push myself to achieve my goal this year and get stronger, without doing a workout that was boring. That's why I started this programme.
I was slightly worried about whether or not it would make a difference - a couple of workouts in and I could definitely tell it was!!
I came 5th at the worlds! I could tell in the classes leading up to the Worlds that my strength was improving and that I now had a strong core to lift and hold my jumps. So many people commented on how powerful my dancing was, I feel much fitter and stronger and my legs have completely changed shape, so much more muscly. I would definitely recommend this programme as it has benefited all aspects of my dancing and as a result I am a much more confident performer!
