Mothers of the borough! Are you looking to get active? If so, local resident Emmanuelle Marcel has created a series of dance classes tailored for ‘womb’men and mums at Kensington Primary Academy (Community Room B1, Warwick Road, W14 8PU)

The dance classes are a basic level and provide a safe relaxing place to de-stress, stretch, stay fit and learn some fun moves. As well as increasing your self-confidence, rhythm and coordination the classes aim to enhance strength through technique.

The classes include contemporary, hip-hop and street, ballet, salsa, tap and musical theatre dance.
