Are you looking for a fun fitness class where you can improve your health and wellbeing, without the worry of arranging childcare?
Look no further!
Sling Beat is an informal dance exercise class where you get to have the best partner of all, your child! The classes are designed to offer gentle aerobic exercise, stretching and toning for parents and carers and their babies aged between 6 weeks to 2 years, or up to the age where parents feel they can support their child’s weight in a full seated baby carrier, sling or wrap, and the child is comfortable in this position for the duration of that class. Older toddlers and pre-schoolers are welcome too, and are invited to dance alongside.
Each hour-long class follows a simple structure of a gentle warm up, teacher-led routines, and a cool down. With a mixture of retro, modern and contemporary music, there should hopefully be a little something for everyone. Expect dance styles covered to include latin dance and salsa, musical theatre, street, commercial, and even a little bit of line dancing
The classes are suitable for babies aged 6 weeks, and women are asked to make sure they have had their postnatal check up with the GP before joining a class.
