The MamaDances Story
Eryn, the founder of MamaDances, is a dance artist and mother who experienced the same struggles that many new mothers face. She found it hard to make time for herself, her physical and mental health, and her relationship with her baby. She found the isolation difficult and it was hard to meet other mothers. Eryn discovered that dancing with her baby was a great way to connect with other mothers and bond with her baby while also getting in shape. She created MamaDances to bring this transformative experience to other mothers.
What our customers say about Mom and Baby Dance:
I am so thrilled to have been able to experience MamaDances with my baby. Eryn is a lovely person and teacher who manages to not only create a fun and gentle way to move our bodies but a warm and welcoming environment to connect with our babies and with other moms. It’s been so long since I have felt such a lovely sense of community! Thank you Eryn! I highly recommend this for any mom, dad, grandparent and look forward to continuing to dance with this group.!
MamaDances was a wonderful experience for both mom and baby! It was a great way to interact with other moms and combat the baby blues/isolation of being a new mom. I was also able to get back in touch with my body and feel a sense of self again. My baby really enjoyed herself too! Both interacting with the other babies and dancing with mama, which almost always put her to sleep. Eryn is also very warm, kind, and an excellent dance teacher. Couldn't recommend MamaDances enough!
Eryn offers a wonderful approach to mother-baby dance. It was a real pleasure to share the spring session with her Mama Dances group! Thank you.
It is an activity I looked forward to every week. It became a safe haven I shared with other moms and could simply be myself. The atmosphere is calm and the teacher is warm, welcoming and resourceful. I am already looking forward to the next session and highly recommend anyone to join.
MamaDances is one of our favorite activities! I enjoyed the classes with baby as much as the parent/child classes. Here is what I preferred:
- the structure of the lessons: they are very well thought out according to the development of the child. Moms can take care of themselves, have fun while spending special time with their baby/child. Babies don't have time to get bored and if they fall asleep, no problem, the class continues in a baby carrier while mum dances!
- the staff is very professional: I found Eryn and Violaine passionate about dance, caring and they are mothers so it makes a difference. They give good advice so that the course goes best for each baby/child . They use tricks never heard in other baby classes.
- my baby loves this course. She laughs a lot and it brings us a lot closer. My eldest still tells me about it because the classes have nothing to do with dance studio classes. For her, it's fun and fun throughout the course, although there are instructions and a flexible structure.
- The lessons are very accessible and original for adults and children alike: it is a great introduction to dance and not just to classical dance. The teachers introduce contemporary, contact dance, somatic dance for parents and dances from other countries, etc.
In short, everyone finds their thing. To try!
I did my first MamaDances classes with Eryn in 2010. I loved it so much that I went back with my second child in 2013, and am now back again with my third! There is something that is so beautiful and natural about dancing with your baby. Eryn has perfected her approach in creating a warm, inviting, inspiring environment where everyone (whether they have dance experience or not) is welcome. She is adaptable and supportive, calm and fun, and the class is not only a great way to connect with your baby, but a nice place to meet other moms as well.
