FEEL GOOD: GroovaRoo
Want to dance your way through maternity leave and befriend a bunch of other mamas while you're at it? GroovaRoo is one of the most sociable, active and, most importantly, fun classes that we have come across. With your baby strapped to you in a sling, the dance class offers easy-to-learn routines, great music and fellow fitness-seeking mums to dance an hour away with.
Easy routines to learn during each class
Great place to meet like-minded mums
Veronika, the teacher, really encourages you all to socialise after the class so generally arranges a spot for lunch or coffee afterwards.
Currently the classes are only available in three locations within South West London - Wimbledon, Mortlake High Street and Ravenscourt Park. Hopefully more will open soon!
£6.50 for a trial class, £13 thereafter for a drop-in or £65 for a set of 6 classes
GroovaRoo prides itself on safety so will assess your baby carrier to ensure it meets the standards needed during the dance class. If, for any reason, the carrier you have isn't suitable, (or you simply don't have one) GroovaRoo will lend you one of theirs.
We would highly-recommend these classes for any new mums who enjoy getting their groove on and want to try a new way of bonding with their baby at the same time.
