Frequent Questions

Is this class safe for me to do while pregnant?

Most definitely! We have worked hand in hand with Andrea Page’s Original Fitmom (www.fitmomfitness.com), who is one of the top pre-natal/post-natal fitness certification providers in Canada. Andrea worked with Salsa Bellies to develop a very in-depth and precise pre-natal manual which our instructors are required to learn and be tested upon. Our program and material is also scrutinized each year to ensure its continued safety and adherence to industry standards.

What do I need to bring to class?

It is best to come to class prepared to move around and be physically active. Comfy clothes, running shoes or dance shoes, and definitely at least 1 bottle of water. Moms are encouraged to stay very hydrated before, during and after class, so a couple bottles of water is a great idea.

What if I have to miss a class?

Salsa Bellies understands that it is not always possible to get out the door on time and we’ve all had those rough nights and last-minute trips to the doctor. Therefore, we offer one (1) make-up class per session to accommodate for missed classes. This class can be used during the subsequent session or at another location. We aim to be flexible, so please speak with your instructor if you have any questions.

I have two left feet! Can I still do the class?

Yes! Most people who take the class have never danced Salsa before, and many have no dance experience at all. We break the steps down so that anyone can join, and we review the basics each class. The most important thing to keep in mind is that it’s not about perfection, but getting moving, enjoying the music and having fun!

Do I have to be in shape to take the class?

Salsa Bellies classes are designed to accommodate all levels of fitness. We know that some expectant moms are in excellent shape, whereas others may need to ease into physical activity at their own pace. We teach a basic program and offer adaptations for those looking to increase the intensity.

Is your class safe for all expectant moms?

In most cases, yes. We do require that each expectant mom have permission from their prenatal health care provider. There are some high-risk pregnancy related conditions that may not allow a mom to participate, on advice from a health care provider. If you are unsure, always check in with your health care provider.
