Mum on a different path…

We adore little Theo who is a huge Movers and Shakers fan and comes regularly to our classes, so were very excited to hear that he had appeared on This Morning TV show with his wonderful mum.

Theo has Down’s Syndrome and Claire, his mum, writes a fascinating and moving blog about her experiences coming to terms with his diagnosis and the amazing adventure the two of them are on together.

It is hugely interesting reading for all parents and Claire is happy for me to share it here for you to read… Click here.

Double Session starting at Stroud Green Library!

Our Stroud Green Library class has always been a busy one, but recently we’ve been having to turn people away each week as we hit our maximum numbers… This makes us (and you) feel sad – we want to keep ALL the children entertained!

So from 7th April we will be running TWO consecutive classes at this lovely friendly venue:

10.15am: TODDLER SESSION for children who are walking confidently. This will be a high energy class for those who want to move around and have a boogie. If you bring a baby to this class you will need to keep them safely on your lap.
Book here.

11am: BABY SESSION for little ones up to 12 months old. This will be a gentler session suitable for teeny tiny babies and older crawlers and bottom shufflers. If you bring a big kid to this group they will need to sit at the side with you because there will be babies lying on the floor.
Book here.

New Class at THE STARTING GATE!

We are very excited to be starting a new class at the lovely pub opposite Alexandra Park Station: THE STARTING GATE! The first session will take place on Thursday 16 March at 11.15am. There are only 14 spaces, so please make sure you book by clicking this link.

If you haven’t visited The Starting Gate yet, then I recommend you pop in – it’s a real gem! There’s more info about their menus and events on their website

We hope to seeing you Moving and Shaking at The Starting Gate next week!

New Class Starting in Myddleton Road

We are very excited to be returning to Bowes Park next week! No. 99 Myddleton Road, formerly home of some very mouldy underwear, has thankfully been beautifully refurbished into the perfect tot-friendly community space!

We are delighted to be among the first groups to use the new space, and would love to see you there: every Wednesday (starting 22nd February) at 3.30pm. Please book your place by clicking this link as places are limited.

2017 HERE WE COME!

Welcome back to classes everyone – I hope you had a wonderfully festive couple of weeks. Did you manage to get any rest? Christmas isn’t quite the same when you have little ones to look after but hopefully you had some friends and relatives who were able to keep them entertained long enough for you to have a mince pie/glass of bubbly/nap – maybe even all three!

Classes started back today (3rd January) EXCEPT for Project Me which starts next week (Wednesday 11th) as they are still closed.

ALSO: The Woodman Pub is closed for refurbishment on Monday 9th January so no class then… but we are still running as usual at The Woodman on Thursday 5th and 12th.

We have a brand new theme this term: TRANSPORT – so we’ll be singing lots of travelling songs. Ride with us on a big red bus, take a rocket to the moon, sail on a boat or ride a bike! Every week our puppet assistant will be Coming Round The Mountain on a different vehicle so we look forward to seeing you very soon… Book here!
