RTE shoot of Sling and Dance Fitness Class: a great success

Sling and Dance exercise for mums

Thanks to everyone who came to the sling and dance fitness  class today to make it such a success for the RTE crew. We had a large, buzzing class full of mums with great slings and happy babies.  Both the cameraman and the director were full of praise for the class and the calming effect it had on the babies.  Hopefully that will come across in the programme itself.

It’s airing during the third week of November – I’ll post the exact time and day when I have the information.
