Babywearing Dance Class

Dance Like a Mother CIC is the Award Winning Mum & Baby class, where you get to have a dance to some great music, get active and have fun, whilst also spending some quality bonding time with your baby, holding them close in soft structured carriers (Ssshhh! they often fall asleep!) 

The classes are relaxed, friendly and most of all fun! All our instructors are Babywearing Peer Support Trained and the comfort and safety of you and your baby is our priority. We can provide you with a carrier and fit you safe for class, or offer you advice and assistance with your own (please see our FAQ's for which carriers/slings/wraps we recommend) 

All dance routines are easy to follow and designed with the postnatal body in mind. Babies love being held close by Mum; while you get to enjoy yourself, meeting other like minded Mum's (& Dads!) whilst helping to boost your confidence, build your fitness level and most of all have a fun! 

We also regularly have socials and events and take part in Flashmobs and performances, including Manchester Day and have even appeared on BBC Strictly Come Dancing.

Hand on heart, these classes are the the best thing that me and my Daughter have done together.It gave me the confidence and self assteem that I needed at a time when I was feeling low and depressed. Because everyone was so welcoming and friemdly, I was able to strike up conversations with other Mums and have since become firm friends of mine. It also helped having such amazing and considerate insructors - Nikki & Beth made each class so fun and welcoming. I felt so happy after every class!

Went to Nikki’s class for the first time with my 16 week old Daughter. I was quite nervous having had a c-section and not having exercised for a long time...I needn’t have been!
On the way in a lovely Mummy waited for me to chat and Nikki the instructor was so lovely!
She helped us into our baby carrier, which was amazing a fitted extremely well. Nikki was a great class leader and I was really welcomed into the group. No Clickiness!! Booked on already for another 5 sessions.
