Mum & Baby Class
Because Motherhood is about having Fun!
This is a fun and easy dance workout designed especially for new mums wearing their baby in a sling or baby carrier.
Your baby stays right there with you and is a great part of the workout and very much involved in helping the mum tone up, burn calories and release ‘happy’ hormones.
The classes are great stimulation for your little one, too. Babies love shaking their maracas and kicking their little feet to pulsating Latin beats whilst gently bouncing and interacting with other babies.
You don’t have to have any previous dance experience nor need to be a good dancer. Classes offer an opportunity for mums to meet and socialise with other parents in a child friendly environment.
You can bring and use your own carrier however we have different types of carriers available to use if you don’t have one or if just want to try out.
Minimum age for the baby is 6 weeks and mum must have ‘all clear’ from the doctor. Please see our Frequently Asked Questions here

Here’s what they have to say…
“Latino Bambino is a great way to enjoy time with your baby, get some exercise, learn new skills and just generally cheer you up for the rest of the week. I loved the way that, unlike other mother and baby fitness classes, the babies are right at the centre of the action, stimulated by the music and dancing, rather than just passively looking on.”
Mum to Clementine and Buzz
“An exercise cass that helps you escape from everything else (including lack of sleep!)”
Mum to Turmalina
“Being someone who suffers from postnatal depression this has been the best thing for me – HONESTLY!”
Mum to Anna
“I can see how my little one enjoys herself with her maracas and kicking up and down. The atmosphere is so solar and positive and this also thanks to you Urska! I will definitely carry on for the next step when my baby will be a toddler and I highly recommend it to all the new mums to join this course!”
Mum to Rebecca
“Your classes have been fantastic and no matter how tired and stressed I’ve felt, the salsa dancing has really helped me to unwind, uplift and get those endorphins going!!”
Mum to Eleanor
“We love Latino Bambino – so much fun! Our only salsa experience so far has come from watching Strictly Come Dancing, so for complete novices, the classes are pitched just right and make for a really different and enjoyable trip out each week.”
Mum to Emily
“Just a quick thank you to say I really enjoyed the exuberant Salsa baby class in Islington. It is not like any other class I do with my baby and really makes me feel oxygen has invigorated my brain!”
Mum to Inez
“One word: great – No, in fact several words: original, fun, instructive as you do learn to dance and it adds so much bonding time with your baby. This is one of the rare places where you don’t feel ill at ease if you have two left feet as me! Really really great!”
Mum to Etzi
