Well, it’s been a while hasn’t it, Funky Family?
Sorry for our silence in the bloggers’ world (we’ve been totally busy with a new rebrand, website, International events, social media parties… the list goes on!). But we are back with a brand-new rap and ready to chat all things dance with you on a regular basis.
This month’s focus?
F A M I L Y
Mums, dads, grannies, uncles, baby sisters, big brothers – dance is for everyone. No matter your age, ability, flexibility or confidence levels, dance can take you on your own journey and bring huge amounts of hope, happiness and funkiness in to your day to day life. With turbulent times in world politics, we need the precious little moments of happiness to keep us grounded and positive, so why not start at home with your loved ones. Funky Moves are taking a tiny step back to prepare for a huge jeté forwards into a Family-focussed 2017. Our emphasis is on uniting families through the joy of dance at various collaborative events and we’ve started already, with the aptly named March social media dance event…

What a great Sunday this was… On March 5th 2017, from 10.30 – 12.30pm, a group of super sassy, social media savvy mums and their gorgeous families danced the morning away with us at Aquum on Clapham High Street. The cool venue was decked out from head to toe with family-friendly areas including softplay spaces, kids ball pit, Instagram frame photobooth, nail bar, facepainting area and a Sunday brunch bar.
The main mirrored dance studio hosted our dance workshops, and if you were in there, you were involved! We played fun warm up games with the kids, and then got to teaching some seriously cool moves with our super experience Funky Mover, Alana. One of our resident breakers, Damien, WOWed the kids with performances and even Spiderman came to visit, teaching everyone how to dance with Superhero skills. The energy in the room was electric, with families taking their turns to shake their bodies, in crazy fancy dress outfits! Everyone got a luxury goodie bag to take home, jam-packed with our new EVERY BODY DANCE merchandise and the Conscientious Cook provided delicious, healthy, sweet treats for everyone to munch on later in the day. There wasn’t a face without a smile as everyone left… and all through the joy of dance. Can we do it all again now please?
But what’s coming up for YOU and YOUR FAMILY?
