Sling Swing & Beanie Boppers East Leeds Area

Sling Swing is an enjoyable dance session for parents and their little ones from new borns to preschoolers. Gentle dance sessions aim to bring parents together whilst having fun with their little ones. Refreshments are provided as well as some slings/carriers so do not worry if you don’t have one! Babies and children love being close to their parents and feeling/listening to the rhythms of music.

Katherine always wanted to take her daughter Faye to Sling Swing classes but the nearest was over 30 minutes drive away. After months of searching and discussion about similar classes in her area she decided to set up Sling Swing classes in Garforth and Tadcaster. Her daughter Faye enjoys dancing alongside her and also a cuddle and snooze in the sling whilst mummy dances.

If you also have a toddler, don’t worry you are welcome to bring them along. We have some child slings that they can wear and dance along too!
