One of our core values at Boogie Tots is inclusion, by insisting that the grown ups join in from the beginning of our class, we help create the inclusive atmosphere we rave about.

At the start of the class we include the following introduction

“The way Boogie Tots works is grown ups if you join in fingers crossed your children will join in”

We set the tone straight away because grown ups, our class is for you too, we want you to have fun, let yourself go and move your body freely.

Children love to copy and if all the adults in the room are doing the same moves it makes it really easy for them to do so.

We love positive role models and the moment you join in you are showing your child it’s okay to be silly, to have fun and actively get involved, if you can do it they can too.

This in turn builds their confidence, they feel safe in the class and can then express themselves freely, for some children being in the presence of lots of people can be intimidating let along dancing in front of them, when you join in it creates a supportive environment where children feel comfortable to be themselves.

There is so much joy to be had in shared experiences and all dancing to Head, Shoulders together really creates an inclusive atmosphere. It is a great bonding experience and brings community spirit to the class.

Another great reason to join in is so you know all the dance moves, this means once you are home and your child insists you play floor is lava or dance to Gummy Bear (because they will) you will know exactly what to do and almost certainly have fun doing it.

By insisting that grown-ups join in at Boogie Tots, we not only enhance the experience for the children but also promote family bonding, physical health, and overall well-being.

It’s a win-win for everyone involved!
