Welcome 

CLASS PROGRAMME

STUCK AT HOME AND/OR WANT TO WORKOUT ON A NAP?

I HEAR YOU!

Here is a collection of online classes, free and pay per view, that I found useful on my mat leave and/or have been recommended to me by fellow Dance Mamas.

 

This was created pre-March 2020 as a good solution for working out at home. Hopefully useful in these unprecedented times.  

 

Whilst dedicated to the #dancemama community, I have added some links to colleagues who are now providing online sessions, free and pay per view in the first section. All other content is split per parenthood stage and style as before. 

Keep scrollin'!
