Born To Move

Girl Ball
Go Active in St.Helens is proud to be one of the first places within the North West to be bringing the newest programme of training from the international health & exercise leaders, LES MILLS.

Born To Move is aimed at children and young people aged 2-16 and the idea of the classes is to take the effort out of activity by making it fun. Combining a motivating and scientifically proven mix of age-appropriate movement with music, the classes captivate toddlers through to teens – and fuel a life-long love of physical activity along the way.

Janine Phillips, the Creative Director for Youth Programming, says, “Being active and fit benefits everyone in many ways but it also gives children the confidence to say ‘I can’ – and this is what inspires me. I love giving children the opportunity to realise their potential through physical activity."

Who can take part in Born To Move in St.Helens?
Go Active will be offering two different classes for 2-3 year olds & 4-5 years olds.

Where will the classes be taking place?
All of our Born To Move classes will be at Selwyn Jones Leisure Centre.

How much will the classes be?
Classes can only be booked in blocks ranging from 5-10 weeks, depending on term times. Classes will work out at £4.50 per class and will need to be paid for in advance direct to Selwyn Jones Leisure Centre.

When are classes starting?
Classes for both 2-3 year olds & 4-5 year olds will be starting Week Commencing Monday 9th January 2017. The first block of classes will be 5 weeks long.

Can parents/carers attend the classes?

How long is each class?
Our classes will be 45 minutes long but scheduled in for an hour to ensure we can plenty of time at the end of each class to answer any questions!

What actually happens in the class?
The music for our Born To Move programmes is specially written for each class and all instructions are sung! Your child (& you) will sing and dance your way through a series of simple moves that build body awareness and balance. The class is led by a highly trained teacher who knows how to coach the best from each child while inspiring a love of movement and having loads of fun too!
Every Born To Move class is refreshed regularly with new music and choreography and all teachers have a bag of tricks designed to maintain interest and engagement.

FREE TASTER SESSIONS are taking place next month so make sure you book your place now!
