Three ways to… keep kids active

1 Football

Are you the next Bukayo Saka or Leah Williamson? Try learning some football skills with Arsenal in the Community or Islington Football Development Partnership. Toddlers can go to St Mary’s Community Centre on Upper Street to join a little kickers session.

2 Ballet

Work on your balance through graceful movement. Try ballet in Islington at Dani Grant School of Dance, Brickworks Community Centre, Islington Arts Factory, Harmsworth School of Dance or Elizabeth House Community Centre.

3 Martial arts

Karate, aikido, ju-jitsu, kung fu, capoeira, tai chi – there are so many options to choose from when it comes to martial arts sessions in Islington. For example, Highbury Jiu Jitsu runs sessions for under-18s every Wednesday.

None of these float your boat? Find other activities in Islington on the Find Your Islington directory.
