Babywearing @ Salsa-palooza!

Recently many of us at OBG were completely wowed by Wrap Your Baby's babywearing ballet blog. The pictures were so beautiful, the dancers looked so sedate and the wrapped babies so incredibly cute. The babywearers of Ottawa wanted something similar.... but with more spice. Something hotter, saucier and maybe a little dirtier!

No... not babywearing pole dancing!

We did SALSA!

Esther America of Salsa Babies very kindly and with graceful expertise, took us through meringue, salsa and the cha-cha-cha in two back to back classes (Yes! There were that many of us!)

The Glebe Community Centre allowed us the use of the studio for free!

And the amazing Sara McConnell was there to capture us shaking our collective thing!

Group members paid just $10 for the event, which included one picture in digital format taken by Sara. Dancers are invited to purchase any further pictures for just $5 each.

All proceeds from the event have gone towards the OBG Sling Library which should be up and running before the end of the summer.

I think the pictures say it all..... see the smiles on our faces!?

I can't speak for the other mamas, but I've not stopped grinning yet!!


Since this event was such a roaring success we might look at running a similar event in the future. What kind of dancing would you like to do whilst babywearing? Let us know and we will try to make it happen!
