Nikki Denning, Sling Swing in Nottingham
Hi, I’m Nikki and I run the Sling Swing classes in Nottingham.
I’ve been dancing since I was young and have always enjoyed a good boogie, luckily my 3 year old daughter seems to have inherited that enjoyment as we’re always dancing around together which is one of the reasons I looked up babywearing with dance and decided to join Sling Swing!
I completed my Babywearing Peer Support training in July 2017 and have enjoyed spreading the knowledge and enjoyment of wearing your little one through classes as well as volunteering with my local Sling Library. My previous career was teaching PE in which dance was one of my specialities, I’ve also taught Zumba and have a level 2 exercise to music qualification. I love how Sling Swing encourages you to bond with your baby whilst taking part in gentle dance so it’s a really unique class that parents, babies and toddlers can enjoy together.
My classes have been running for over 18 months now and we’re proud to have won the 2018 Hoop Award for best for getting active in Nottingham! We run regular weekday classes as well as special once a month weekend family sessions and enjoy other fun events such as flash mobs and charity events. I’m currently taking a short break from classes from December 2018 for maternity leave. I expect to restart classes for Easter 2019 with my new arrival joining me in classes too so please do check back here around April for an updated schedule. Alternatively you can follow what we’re getting up to via the Facebook and Instagram pages.
All class times currently TBC.
