RavingKids from Farrah’s Dance Workout comes to your aid and your own living room whilst you get on with the kids dinner in times of the LOCKDOWN! Every Wednesday, with other adult-only classes at different times, such as the Bollywood Fit at Home.
[Note from Kazz : Toby and I enjoyed this last week! If he was still a baby I would probably have enjoyed doing it with him in my arms or chilling, so maybe give it a try!]
Kids can rave! They can exercise. They can go bonkers and burn off much needed excess energy. They can wear their party/festival/rave wear! I’ll bring the music, the moves, the costumes, the grooves to your room to entertain and exercise your young ones. And hey, adults can get involved too!
There’s no reason for kids to stop moving, stop raving, getting fit and having fun with my super energetic dance workout. I’ll bring the club to your own living room. I’ll bring the fun! And the amazing playlist. And the workout. And they’ll benefit from the euphoria, the endorphins and the exercise! And you parents can have an hour to yourselves!! Don’t worry, I’ll entertain them well!
