Have fun, dance and socialise!

Happy Feet Fiesta offers a fun workout with the best little dance partner you could have – your baby! Bubs 8 weeks of age and up are snuggled into baby carriers and introduced to music and movement. It is an excellent way for parents and babies to socialise, dance and have fun in a safe environment. Our instructors are passionate about dancing and teaching. Being mums themselves, they understand the importance of staying active while spending time with their babies.

When to start?

When baby is 8 weeks of age, here is why…

For safety of both mum and baby we require that baby is 8 weeks of age, and that mum has gone to her 6 week post-partum checkup and given the okay to proceed with fitness. At 8 weeks babies are larger and can be carried more comfortably. We advise mums to also trust themselves as to their readiness; if you’re not sure, play it safe.

There is no upper age limit, the basic guideline is that both mum and baby should be comfortable using a baby carrier for the duration of a 45-minute class. It is an individual decision depending on various factors including fitness level, type of carrier, and size and weight of baby regardless of age. Happy Feet Fiesta offers $5 OFF on your first class in case you are still uncertain whether the class is suitable for you and your baby. Our instructors will ask you to complete a post-partum registration form to highlight any concerns so that they may modify the exercises in the workout for you.

What do you need to bring to the class?

It is best to come to class prepared to move around.

  • Comfy and light clothes for exercising
  • Babies should also be comfortable in light clothing or in layers which can be removed if they get too warm. Your baby in his/her carrier will get warmer as your body gets warmer with exercise.
  • Baby Carrier – There is a wide range of carriers on the market, but we recommend one that is safe, supportive for both mum and baby and comfortable
  • A bottle of water for yourself
  • Any baby items you require
  • Because the baby is worn against your body, you can both get a little sweaty by the end of the class, you may wish to dress the baby in layers or bring a change of clothes

Baby Carriers

Recommended Baby Carriers for class
Depending on size, we recommend:

  • Soft structured carriers such as, Tula, Ergo and Manduca
  • Mei Tais

Please note younger babies are best in the tummy-to-tummy upright position, seated nice and high and facing mum or dad. With older/heavier babies, it may be easier and more comfortable for you to wear them on your back, but remember, the most important thing is that you choose what you feel is best for you and your baby.

If you would like to try using one of these carriers, we can provide you with one to try out during the class.

If you are new to babywearing and interested in a private consultation, please email us here.
