Kat Burgess, Sling Swing in Garforth

Hi my name is Katherine Burgess and I run the Sling Swing classes in Garforth.

I am a mum to an almost 2 year old daughter Faye. I was a primary school teacher, who specialised in PE, for 8 years before deciding to stop and concentrate on having a family. My passion for leading a healthy lifestyle has meant coaching a variety of sporting activities including gymnastics and hockey. I have also taught dance classes at University and through my teaching. Whilst pregnant I qualified as a Personal trainer but since having Faye would like to focus more on baby bonding and teaching fun dance sessions. As I have no desire yet to return to teaching I wanted to find something that I could do with Faye by my side (or wearing her!) so after searching around for classes which involve gentle exercise and baby bonding in one, I found Sling Swing and enquired about setting up a franchise here in Garforth. Unfortunately the nearest class was too far for Faye and I to travel to on a weekly basis and Beanie Boppers classes are a great progression for toddlers to enjoy dancing independently.

Faye and I love dancing around the living room together so I hope to see you and your little one at one of my class to have fun, exercise and bond more with your little one.
