"I really enjoyed the session. It felt very relaxed and so I was able to join in as much as possible whilst also tending to my babies needs without feeling any pressure. Was so nice to move my body and learn some dance sequences."

"I really loved it. Wonderful chance to connect with your new body postpartum - strengthen, stretch out & mobilise. Also to share something special with you baby. Thought the physical focus of the class (open chest, move feet/ankles & a bit of cardio) was brilliant. Loved the massage bits in the warm up. Important as body feels so different & tired!!!."

Our story

The heart of Dance Mama's™ work is learning from sharing experiences. We always had the desire to share what we we learning working with professionals to the general public. 

Work began on developing this idea back in 2021 when we piloted two online Dancing Towards Connection sessions for mums in the general public whose social isolation was increased due to the pandemic and may not have danced before.


In 2023 our Lead Dance Artist, Laura Harvey (long-time colleague, mum, Head of Creative Programmes- English National Ballet), built on this work with our Founder/CEO, Lucy McCrudden, to develop an 8-week in person programme with the support of Arts Partnership Surrey and GLive.

In the video above Laura and Lucy share their findings from the 2023 research and development period which has led to our sessions in Godalming in 2024. 

Please don't hesitate to get in touch with us if you would like further information
