Guest post by Blissful Bambino.
Children, Music and Dance.
London, 28 April 2013

Happy Toddler
As a parent we all have memories of special times with our children and for me one of my favourites is getting that wedding or party invitation through the letterbox! Instantly my mind fills of lovely images of my daughter dressed in her prettiest dress and shoes and this image continues with happy times, laughter, celebrating a special event and of course music and dancing!

Babies and children generally seem to adore music and dancing and I know that taking my children to that special event is the perfect opportunity for them to indulge in that passion! Being twirled around the dance floor by a parent or family friend, making up a cute little dance with friends or cousins or standing relatively still with the occasional jiggle whilst being totally absorbed in the sounds and lights!

Dancing is such a wonderful confidence booster for children, it encourages a sense of pride and achievement whether its within a formal setting or purely social and it allows them to express themselves in a free way and can also be a great release of emotion and feelings.

Of course there are huge health benefits when it comes to dancing, not only does it encourage physical development, it contributes to an increase of balance and coordination skills. It can help improve poor posture and naturally gets all of their muscles working!

Toddlers and children benefit hugely in a social capacity when it comes to dancing, music will give them the opportunity to be perhaps pretend to be someone or something else for a few minutes. It encourages social interaction within a group setting and teaches them to take direction from someone other than a parent which of course is a very valuable tool to learn when moving onto pre-school and other early educational settings.

Language development is also another benefit of dancing, because whilst children recognize a piece of music from an early age, as they get older you then begin to get the benefits of your child learning the words to a song.It could be a simple nursery rhyme or even a current piece of pop music!There is something incredibly cute about a 4 year old singing a pop song,but getting the words to it muddled!

A child's enjoyment of music is something to be encouraged as it holds positive images and association! Whether you choose a structured dance group for your little one or just enjoy turning up the radio and having a bop around your kitchen with them, smiles, giggles, laughter, music and dancing!  What a fabulous part of your day to enjoy!

At Blissful Bambino we pride ourselves on taking a child focused approach when working with families. Our priority, whether we are working with a ten week old baby or a four year old child, is to encourage confidence in them with whatever they are doing. We do this by working closely with the parents to empower them in their parenting skills and using techniques that promote reassurance and confidence in the whole family."

Latino Bambino appears in brand new BBC Three TV series - The Baby Bomb.
What they didn’t tell you about having a baby...
London, 11 April 2013

Happy Toddler
Some of our mums will remember a rather unusual Salsa baby class full of cameras staring in their and their little ones’ faces.  As we danced, wiggled and shook our maracas to the Latin beat, A BBC Three camera crew captured every move we made. Suddenly we were all part of The Baby Bomb!

The Baby Bomb explores what it means to be a young parent in Britain today.

The series follows parents as they face the most pressurized experience of their lives: the challenge of becoming first-time parents. The couples face the highs and lows of becoming new parents, dealing with breastfeeding, nappy changing and a serious lack of sleep in the same apartment building.

If you missed us on TV screens here is an edited version of our dancing mums and babies..

Successful exhibition at the Baby Show, Excel
Daily demonstrations and new positive review award.
London, 5 March 2008

Latino Bambino Instructors
Many thanks to all those who visited our stand and to those who showed interest in our classes and the licensing opportunities at Latino Bambino.
The Baby Show Exhibition was a success for Latino Bambino, we had a lot of fun and the whole Latino Bambino team was kept busy chatting to mums (and dads) about our classes and the benefits for moms and babies. Latino Bambino classes are a great fun way to have a post-natal workout.

One part of the day that the whole team looked forward to was the daily demonstrations held at the 'Theatre of Fun' during the Baby Show. This gave us a chance to show parents a Latino Bambino class in progress and for parents to ask any questions later at our stand.
It was a great pleasure to hear all the good comments after our daily demonstrations, not only from parents but also from health professionals and other exhibitors.

We are especially thankful to all our Salsa Mums and Salsa Babies that come to participate in the demonstrations. All of the mums and babies on the stage have been participating in our regular classes (some for 6 months or longer). It is them who are the best ambassadors for the Latino Bambino system.

During the baby show, we also unveiled our recent positive review award for the Latino Bambino Classes. The review was carried out by the health professionals at midwivesonline.com and HealthVisitors.com; we are very happy with their review of our Salsa classes for mums and babies and we thank them for their comments and reviews. (To see the whole positive review award, please click here.).

We are already working on our next exhibition and will post details here once it is finalized.

If you have any questions, please contact us on 07961 838349 or use the 'contact us' form to send us a message or your comments.
