The five enchanting stages of babyballet®

Promoting both physical and social growth and development, all babyballet® classes are non-competitive, suitable for boys and girls of all abilities and are taught in a relaxed and welcoming environment.to 6 years
Tots (6 months to 18 months)
The Tots class is a magical sensory and musical experience for parents/carers and babies and young toddlers, to enjoy together.
Using a combination of movement, music and props/toys, the Tots class is a great way to enhance a baby’s physical, communication and social/emotional development. The class provides a stimulating yet gentle introduction to song and dance, improving body awareness and self-control.
Tinies (18 months to 3 years)
Toddlers adore learning the basics of ballet through movement, play and song. Toddlers and young children are encouraged to develop and explore their ability to move, dance and sing in our Tinies classes. Still with their parent or carer by their side, these fun classes involve lots of smiles and laughter – the perfect toddler dance class! The little ones love the dances and catchy songs – and the adults love joining in too!
Movers (3 and 4 years)
Dedicated and fun babyballet® teachers delight in encouraging preschool children to use their imagination while learning ballet fundamentals through enhanced movement and song. Focusing on developing gross motor skills, basic ballet, rhythm and confidence, the ‘Movers’ classes help children to feel comfortable with their own natural ability and gain confidence. Increased dancing skills and imagination are learnt in a fun environment with singing along to music, helping to build basic principles and social skills that will serve them well as they approach school age.
Groovers (4 to 6 years)
As children develop and learns about their world around them, these classes will focus on improving coordination, self-control and ballet technique. This class takes children of school age to a higher level of musical ability, balance, posture and confidence – and is designed for children who love to dance and learn ballet, but don’t want to feel intimidated by joining a competitive class. Classes are welcoming, fun and a fantastic way to learn new dance routines and technique without any pressure.
Tappers (3 years +)
Little ones will love babyballet’s upbeat, fun ‘Tappers’ classes . Children aged 3 upwards will learn basic tap steps and routines set to catchy songs. And which child (or grown up for that matter) doesn’t love the sounds tap shoes make!
