New Class: Kids Kan Dance

Kids_Kan_Dance (2)

Kids Kan Dance


I’m Katie, the Founder and Creative Director at Kids Kan Dance.

Kids Kan Dance was born whilst I was on maternity leave after having my daughter, who has now just turned one.

I first started teaching dance 17 years ago at the dance school I trained at, since then I have taught in so many places and met so many amazing children.

Dance has been a huge part of my life since the age of 2 and I have always wanted to share this experience with as many children as possible, so when I had my daughter I knew it was the right time start something I had always wanted to do.

I wanted to create a dance concept that would enable children to explore all styles of dance and to use their imaginations in creative movement.

My vision is to teach children that there is a whole world of dance out there and to help them to find the styles that they love.

I knew that this was going to be an amazing journey, and hard work setting up a business with a new baby on board !

But, things have gone brilliantly and within 12 weeks of opening all my classes were fully booked.

I am now starting new classes ready to open after the February half term.

KKD offers two types of class

  • Kids Kan Dance with Mummy  – for children aged 6 months – 3 years
  • and Kids Kan Dance 4 FUN – for children aged 3-7 years

KKD classes are specifically designed for the younger dancer.

We offer a wide range of classes for all age groups so children will always be learning at the right level.

We believe that children should learn all styles of dance in a fun, exciting and educational environment.

Each week our classes cover a new theme such as animals or numbers for the younger children and musical theatre or jumps and leaps for the older children.

Our dance with mummy programme offers the chance for parents and children to really get to know their dance teacher, their style of teaching and what goes on during class together.

Our 4 Fun programme helps children learn about all the different styles of dance so they can, together with their parent, make an informed choice about which styles they would like to continue with.

Once children are ready they will then be invited to join our speciality classes at the K Dance Academy.

Kids Kan Dance has been open for 5 months now and is growing day by day, it’s been an exciting time and I’m loving every minute of it!!​

Cookery Doodle Doo


I’m Katie and I run Cookery Doodle Doo from my home in Laverstoke, North Hampshire.

CDD - Mexican Pizzas

At Cookery Doodle Doo, we run relaxed and fun cooking sessions for pre-schoolers every term-time Wednesday and Friday morning.

Using great-quality ingredients, we bake something new each week and also do fab craft activities and read stories whilst our creations are in the oven.

Even fussy eaters love Cookery Doodle Doo as the focus is on the activity, although children are encouraged to try new flavours in a supportive and unpressured environment.

Sometimes it’s sweet, sometimes it’s savoury but whatever we cook, your kids are learning a vital life-skill… and in the meantime you can chat with other parents and have a coffee.

We do all the prep, cleaning and washing up for you; all you have to do is take home a happy child and your parcel of goodies.

CDD - Ladybird Crackers

We also offer our popular Cookie Art decorating parties, run seasonal ‘no cook’ cookery sessions for nurseries and preschools, and have just launched our sell-out monthly Sunday Morning Pudding Club for children aged 5-10, helping them to produce the dessert for your family Sunday meal whilst you relax at home with the papers.

What a great start to a Sunday for the whole family!

Tot Cross Buns

Tot Cross Buns is a brand new cookery class for children aged from 2 years old to preschool.

I’m Allison, the face behind Tot Cross Buns.  My childhood memories consist of having great fun in the kitchen with my Dad, concocting all sorts of recipes and making a mess!

This gave me confidence with cooking and I have never been afraid to try new foods or add my own twist to a recipe.

I love cooking in the kitchen with my little girl and she loves being involved every step of the way!

I believe every little person should have fun cooking, tasting and exploring food, having the confidence to try new things.

image 1

The aim of the class is to introduce children to food through taste, smell and touch, whilst having fun and enjoying themselves.  It is also a great way to spend some quality time with Mum, Dad or Grandparents!

image 5

We cook a wide range of recipes from muffins and scones to pizza, quiche and lots more.  We also have a fun activity whilst our goodies are baking.  Activities can include food exploring and tasting, food related games and we also get creative!

image 6

Classes are relaxed and friendly, with just 6 children per class!

My classes are run as a 5 week course and last 45 minutes per session – although I would ask that you allow an hour.

image 2

I am currently able to offer classes on a Tuesday and Thursday afternoon starting at 2.00pm and I also run a class on a Friday morning at 10.00am.

The venue is Cross House in Bramley.  I am also hoping to offer other venues in the near future.

I am CRB/DBS checked, with a food hygiene certificate and first aid qualification.

Relax Kids!

Relax Kids Picture

Relax Kids

Hi, I’m Kath and have recently qualified as a Relax Kids Coach and am just setting up in Basingstoke and NorthHantsMum kindly offered to give me some space in her weekly blog to promote the sessions I’m running.

We are all guilty, I’m sure, of rushing from one appointment to the next; from breakfast to school; from school to after school playdate; from dinner to bath to bed … you get the picture.

We just don’t build in time to relax anymore, particularly as there is so much around us to distract us – tv, ipad, playstation – the list is endless.

Relax Kids is all about helping children learn basic relaxation skills, to help them become aware of their feelings and emotions and learn techniques to manage these feelings and emotions, to develop concentration skills, to improve behaviour, promote positive self-image and self-esteem in children and to improve their performance at school

A Relax Kids class follows 7 steps – dance, games, stretches, massage, breathing exercises, affirmations (positive statements) and visualisations. So in a nutshell, taking children from high energy games (eg stamping and shouting like angry giants) to relaxing on the floor (and listening to stories).

I love the whole concept of Relax Kids and when I did the course I did wonder whether it would be possible in a room of 4 year olds to take them from high energy games to relaxing on the floor and it was pretty amazing when I did my first class and it happened!

I will be running two separate classes – 3-4 years (preschool age) – where parents will need to stay and find their own inner child as I’d like adult participation!!! and 4-6 (infant school age) where you can leave your child for the hour.

I will be running sessions at The Studio in Dummer during the summer holidays.

Places can be booked here: and cost £4 for an hour long class for school age children (4-6) or £3 for a 45 minute class for preschool age children (3-4).

You can find more details about the class at my facebook page:

I can also be contacted via email ( for further queries.

Hope to see you soon.
