Baby Ballet/Pre-School Ballet and Baby Ballet/Tap and Pre-School Ballet/Tap

Our Baby ballet and Pre-School classes are designed for 2 and a half to four year olds and are a great fun fairy tale introduction to ballet and dance movement.

These classes prepare children for ballet and other dance genres at higher levels incorporating listening, co-ordination and social skills. Through carefully structured dance classes to music they also develop physical skills, rhythm, creativity, expression, and musicality using a range of movement and musical styles introducing basic ballet technique and mime. Pupils learn through an imaginative setting by telling a story through their dancing. The classes are further enhanced by the use of props such as musical instruments, pom-poms, flags and floor markers to help the children to interact, build their confidence and most importantly have lots fun!

These ballet classes are often combined with a 15 minute introduction to tap where the children love to make a noise in their tap shoes whilst learning basic tap steps and routines. Set to catchy songs, these classes are upbeat and lots of fun.
