Throwing some shapes at Baby Goes Clubbing

Taking your toddler clubbing isn't normally something you think you'd ever do but today I found myself in one of Bournemouth's most popular clubs dancing along to Boyzone with Elliot by my side!

Minky Moos Children's Entertainment run regular baby clubbing sessions and it gives little ones a chance to get their groove on whilst enjoying a new sensory experience.

The sessions are usually themed and this week's was a celebration of all things Irish especially for St Patrick's Day. I love a bit of Irish pop music and I spent many an evening warbling along to The Corrs in my bedroom when I was a teenager!

The nightclub it is held in is fairly small and the dance floor filled up quick - there were a real mix of ages from newborns being rocked around the dancefloor to crazy toddlers (mine!) jumping around to the music. Elliot loves music and he was so excited to be dancing with me ("Mummy, dance!!!) , I thought he was going to explode with excitment when his little friend arrived! As well as the music, there were also lots of bubbles and the kids were following the lady with the bubbles around the dance floor like she was the Pied Piper ;)

Notice how Elliot is right at the front for the bubbles!!
I loved the playlist today - there was Boyzone (yay!), The Corrs (double yay!), Westlife, U2, Cranberries and even a bit of the Boomtown Rats...maybe I'm showing my age there ;)

The sensory part of the session was really fun - we got to listen to Enya whilst lots of flashing balls/toys were handed out to the kids, and the Minky Moos ladies walked round with handheld flashing lights. Elliot wasn't satisfied with just one, he had 3 on the go at once!


The session was packed and it's obviously really popular amongst the local mums. Elliot really enjoyed it and we will definitely look into attending the next event!

All this dancing is exhausting ;)

  5. Fantastic! Dancing is such a good way of building a child's confidence and encouraging them to express themselves, and it looks like Elliot has got some moves ...
