Recently myself and my daughter had the great pleasure of joining Stacie for one of her online dance classes with her local franchise of Tappy Toes!
Before Covid-19 Stacie was just about to launch her business at Go Bananas in Colchester. Unfortunately this couldn’t happen so she thought and adapted by taking her classes online. Stacie has a background in teaching and is a mum of two… so also knows how we are all having to juggle things at the moment!
For £4.50 a week you get access to two online LIVE classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 10am via Zoom. Classes are aimed at 12 months to 5 years but even older children can get involved at home…. and adult participation is highly recommended too! A monthly pass which works out cheaper is also available for £16.50.
Stacie gave us a list of thing it might be good to have like Pom Poms, musical shakers and a bowl and spoon but of course none of this takes away from the experience if you didn’t have it.
What it involves
Each week is different, with different songs and dances to keep it fresh and exciting for your child. We rode on a magic carpet and made magic potions! We hunted for dinosaurs which my daughter loved stomping around too! She also loved pretending to be asleep and I could really see her focusing and concentrating on copying and listening to what Stacie was doing. Stacie also makes a point of saying goodbye to every single child at the end to ensure they know they are valued and I also feels this helps make it interactive and so so lovely!
We Loved it!
My Daughter has just turned two and absolutely loved it! She got dressed up (fancy dress optional but I highly recommend it ?) and we even made some Pom poms to use too! The sessions run for 30mins and my easily bored and distracted child lasted a good 20-25mins of it! She enjoyed it so much we are signing up for next week too!
Book a Class
Stacie is friendly and helpful and you can feel how passionate she is about these classes and her business. I really hope she is able to launch her real life classes soon and I for one will be trying to go!!
Thank you Stacie for such a lovely class. ❤️
