I am a huge advocate for baby wearing, so when I heard that Kristen De Paula was hosting a baby wearing ballet class out of Bini Birth in Studio City, I knew I had to check it out.
During her last session, I signed up for the 4-part Wednesday series. I’m so glad I did. Not only does my body get a good workout, my soul does too as I get to wear my baby girl the entire time. Fussy baby? No worries. It’s a class full of moms. All of whom have had a fussy baby on their hands at some point. I have even fed Adelaide during class right from my Mei Tai!
But is it a decent workout you ask. Why yes. Yes it is! In fact, there are times when my legs are screaming at me to stop. To give up. But I just push through, and am always glad when I do. Oh, you have no dance experience? Psh. I hadn’t taken a dance class since grade school when I signed up! There is no judgement. This class is for the beginner or the most experienced dancer. It’s more about bonding with your baby, meeting new moms, and burning some calories in a fun and creative way. It’s setup more like a cardio barre class than traditional ballet ballet class.
The next session starts this Wednesday, July 8th. For you working moms out there, Saturday sessions are also available. I’ll be joining that group next month when I start back at the Pantages. The rates are very reasonable at $65 for Wednesday OR Sunday, and $100 for every Wednesday AND Saturday session.
