Sam attends Pre-School classes at Kicks Dance East Grinstead. He has been at Kicks since he was 18 months old and is a little star!

Read his mum’s ‘Words from the heart’ below explaining what Kicks has done for him.

Being a first time parent can be daunting and the thought of going to baby groups and activities can be overwhelming. My son always loved bopping around to music when he was tiny so I decided to face my anxiety and take him to a Kicks class. I’m so glad I did as I have never been made to feel more welcome or more confident than at that first tots class when he was 18 months old and we’ve never looked back. Right from the start Julia was warm and engaging and every teacher who’s taken Sam’s classes since (he’s now four and a half and still attends every week) has been such a credit to Kicks.

He’s done things I never would have thought of, like dancing at the Hawth at the 10thanniversary show and is happy, confident and outgoing and so much of that is down to Julia and all the other ladies who put so much into the classes. We owe Kicks a big thank you for giving my son the opportunity to engage in something he loves to do and for helping to give a mummy a much needed boost of confidence.

Kicks isn’t just for the children that attend the classes, it’s for their families too.
