We’re back!

Movers and Shakers is restarting some classes from September 7th. We have updated our policies, made a few changes to the class format and feel confident that we can safely run sessions ‘in real life’ again. Our Covid Guidelines can be found here.

The timetable is reduced as some venues are not able to accommodate us yet, however, we are in touch with all of them and hope to restart in all of our previous venues as soon as it is safe for us to do so.

Timetable (starts W/C 7-Sep)
Tuesday, 10AM at Walthamstow Trades Hall (mixed)
Tuesday, 11:30 at Arnos Arms (mixed)
Wednesday, 10AM at Wanstead United Reformed Church (Toddlers)
Wednesday, 11AM at Wanstead United Reformed Church (Babies)

Class numbers will be strictly limited and we are not able accept any ‘walk-ins’, so all spaces must be booked including those who have a loyalty card. We have moved all bookings over to Happity – if you have a pre-paid card, please book a ‘Pre-paid Loyalty Card Holders’ ticket and your class leader will amend the expiry date.

Do let me know if there are any questions and we look forward to seeing you soon!

Movers and Shakers Summer Break

Following the announcement that Hoop will be closing on 17-July, we have also made the tricky decision to wind down our online sessions.
We expect everyone will be having a lovely, busy summer holiday and decided it would be better to focus our attentions on preparing to restart classes ‘in real life’! We sincerely hope this will be possible in September and continue to work with guidance from the government and our venues.
Final Online Sessions:
Movers and Shakers with Rosie! Friday 10th July, 4pm
Movers and Shakers with Rosie! Tuesday 14h July, 10am
Movers and Shakers with Elise! Monday 20th July, 10am
We would like to thank you for being a part of Movers and Shakers online adventure as we have discovered how to run classes on a new format! It has been an interesting time for everyone but really has been an utter joy seeing you all each week, singing and dancing along.
We hope you’ll join us for a final online session this week, we’ll be having a Movers and Shakers party!
Big thanks,
Rosie, Erica & All the Movers and Shakers Team


We are thrilled to announce that we will be starting live streamed classes from Monday 23rd March.

Following the most recent government advice regarding Covid-19, we have decided to suspend classes for the time being. We will really miss moving and shaking with you all over the next week or so, but feel we have got to do our bit to reduce the potential spread of coronavirus.
We will be in touch as soon as we’re up and running again (fingers crossed it won’t be too long!) and we are also looking into the possibilities of online classes.
Stay safe & see you all soon.
