My daughter tried a drop-in class yesterday and loved it. There's a cool hippy vibe but the instructors can untangle a kid's foot in the silks so effortlessly that you see the skill that goes into it. It's great exercise without it looking like exercise e.g the warm-ups are done as games. My daughter's review: "I want to go there every day after school"
