Deeping St Nicholas woman is launching Mums-Dance classes
Mums, step into your favourite dancing shoes, leg warmers and headbands to dance your way out of lockdown.
Amy Cook-Nykyforczuk (36), from Deeping St Nicholas, was inspired to get footloose after discovering the official Mum-Dance Instagram page but was disappointed that there wasn’t a local classes.
Mum-Dance, originally founded by Hebe Allun, is an hour-long session in which you are able to get dressed up and dance to all your favourite 80s and 90s hits.
Noticing that there’s “not anything like it round”, she chose to do a training course to be able to become a Mum-Dance teacher, and hopes to encourage people to have fun, whilst also keeping fit.
Participants are invited to dress up in 80s and 90s gym wear, however this is optional.
Despite the name, Mum-Dance is not only for mums.
Amy said: “This class gives mums and ladies that hour for themselves with no children They can meet for that hour to have fun with their friends.”
It is not a serious dance group, but participants are urged to following along with the teacher and if you “get it wrong, you get it wrong” according to Amy.
Founder Hebe wanted to create a class after she had had her children so she could go and dance with her friends, whilst also keeping fit.
The fitness class, intended for mums and females only, is a fun way to get your steps in, averaging out at 4,000 steps in a single session.
Mum-Dance classes will be launching on June 21 with four sessions per week.
Spalding United Reformed Church,Pincheck Road, will be hosting sessions from Monday, June 21 to Monday, July 19, from 9.30am to 10.30am. Classes will also be held at the site from Tuesday, June 22, to Tuesday, July 20, from 7pm to 8pm.
Cowbit Village Hall will also be hosting classes. These will be held from Wednesday, June 23, to July 21, 9.30am to 10.30am. Evening sessions will be held from Thursday, June 24, to July 22, from 7pm to 8pm.
Amy has also arranged for a regular class to be held at Baston Village Hall from Friday, June 24, to July 23. This will be held from 9.30am to 10.30am.
She is planning to venture into schools by holding sessions for teachers and mums to take part in.
A percentage of the earnings are to be given to the schools in order to fund PTA meetings and other activities.
