The Metro
The Ding Dong Sing-a-Long is the cult hit of the office Christmas party. Part karaoke, part terrace-belter, it's accompanied by singing coach Helen Astrid with vocal flourishes to encourage punters in a crowd-responsive sing-a-long.

Not only is it a physical release, it's a great social leveller. Tensions build in the office during the year and this provides a safe and fun place to show your true colours and let off steam without character-assassinating your boss.

Astrid, whose clients are resoundingly professional males, overwhelmingly bankers says, 'It gives people the chance to show there's more beyond a striped suit'.

Aggie Mackenzie, presenter C4's 'How Clean is your House?'
The lessons were just fantastic. Aggie reviewed Helen for Woman's Weekly.
