 Cubcare Babywearing Dance class

A fun and sociable babywearing dance class for all abilities. Suitable for those with babies from around 8 weeks (12 weeks post caesarean delivery). Carry your baby in a sling or carrier and enjoy some fun movement to great tunes. Expect lots of laughter, a really welcoming and non-judgmental space and leave feeling confident & full of joy. Cubcare Babywearing dance class.

No dancing experience is necessary as it is all about the fun! Dances are choreographed by an experienced pre and postnatal qualified instructor and are broken down into easy to follow steps with the focus on enjoying the experience.

Dancing with your baby is known to calm them and boost bonding. Plus, it releases feel good chemicals in the body, leaving you feeling good for the rest of the day!

No babywearing experience is needed either, just a willingness to enjoy the experience with your little one.

We are all babywearing consultants and/or peer support trained so we can get you fitted into a carrier safely and comfortably. If you bring your own carrier, we can help and support you with this if you need it. Or we have carriers available to loan for the duration of class at no extra charge.

Babywearing dance class sessions are run on a weekly basis so there is no need to sign up to a term. Although savings can be made in block booking sessions.  Babywearing Dance class.

Each session will be 1 hour long with 10-15 minutes at the beginning of each class available to check carriers, feed or change baby. Babywearing Dance class.

    • Comfy clothing that you would wear to be active in. For example leggings and a t-shirt/vest

Do I need to be fit/have dance experience?

No! The class is designed with a postnatal body in mind with an emphasis on being active and enjoying movement, not fitness.

Routines are demonstrated with easy-to-follow steps, it really is about having fun coordinated or not!

Is it safe?

Safety is our priority. Our instructors are fully trained babywearing consultants and also dance instruction and pre/postnatal training.

We are here to guide and support you, so you and your baby feel as safe and happy as possible. During the class you will learn about safe babywearing and we are always aware of those that need adjusting or help during class. 

All routines have been choreographed with the postnatal body in mind and all our instructors are trained in dance instruction, to ensure that the moves are carried out with care and awareness.

As with all movement classes, follow your body and stop/take a break if you feel it is needed.

Can I bring twins/multiples?

Yes absolutely! Twins and multiples are always welcome and there is no extra cost.

We have a few options.

  • You can tandem wear (One on the front and one on the back) once they have good neck support, and we can fit you in our carriers and make sure you are all safe and comfy

  • If both you and the instructor are comfortable to; they can wear one of your babies for you.

  • If we have space we are also happy for you to bring an extra person at no extra cost so you can each wear a baby. Just contact us ahead iof booking to ensure we have space to accommodate you both.

  • You can have one in the pushchair/car seat and wear the other.
