Gail McGlinchey / Certified Joimove Babies Instructor
My name is Gail McGlinchey and welcome to my page.
I started dancing when I was 4 years old and I have been dancing ever since. I have been a qualified dance teacher with the British Association of Teachers of Dance (BATD) for over 20 years. I am trained in tap, ballet, modern, disco and highland dance and I have a wealth of experience in teaching both children and adults to dance.
I have always loved dance and the joy and fun it brings to my and other people’s lives. Throughout my childhood and early adulthood I danced in a variety of shows including; dance displays, concerts, charity events, pantomimes and musicals and have loved every new experience and challenge dance has brought my way.
When I had my baby girl and I was feeling like I was ready to get fit again I was looking into different classes to take her to and after some research I discovered baby in sling dance classes with Joimove and my trainer, Selen. This was my ideal idea for a baby class! Dancing with my baby. Having fun and getting some light exercise in the bargain. It was an amazing idea and I knew my baby already loved music and moving with me around the house.
So, I contacted and met with Selen then took part in my health and safety and dance training to complete my Joimove instructor training certificate.
Anyone who comes along to class with their baby should not worry about having any dance experience. Our Joimove class is totally accessible to all and we are all there together simply to spend quality time with our babies, meet like minded and new people and just groove, move and enjoy the music!
At our baby in sling dance class, I promise there is no judging and no worrying. It’s simply about having some fun, being in the moment and dancing and bonding with your baby and hopefully forgetting any worries you might have for a wee while. What’s not to love?
I hope to see you along at a class soon.
Til then….dance like no-one’s watching,
“I’m always in good mood after Joimove dance class and so is my little girl. It’s great to see her dancing at home using moves she learnt in class!”
