Baby ballet classes are as much about learning ballet as they are about socialising and learning structure in a fun and friendly environment. As an introduction to dance and rhythm we learn to point our feet and walk around on tiptoes. We also use props like flowers, scarves and ribbons where we employ the use of imagery to pretend to be characters or animals.
It’s a great way to socialise with other children and develop their creative and communication skills. Ballet practice improves flexibility and muscle strength and tone; it has the advantage of working the entire body. In particular, it strengthens abdominal and improves posture.
All of our students are working towards achieving their International Dance Rewards in ballet! There are a list of targets for each level and certificates and badges are available for purchase from the dance school.
Students are required to wear out school’s uniform leotard, skirts and tights are optional. Cardigans are recommended for the colder months. These are £9.00 and can be bought from your teacher. we have sizes from as small as 3-4 Years and they are machine washable.
Our students also have the option to take part in our end of year show in June!
These classes are 45 minutes long and £5.00 per session. There is a cheaper payment option if you book on for the whole term.
We offer a 15% sibling/multiple class discount. This was implemented at the start of 2018 to make sure that students have the option to take classes in as many genres as they would like!
The first class is only half price at £2.50. Please get in contact to book a space
