The babyballet syllabus offers four stages of dance classes that your child can progress through, plus a tap class for the over 3s.

Suitable for boys and girls of all abilities, all babyballet classes are non-competitive and taught in a relaxed and welcoming environment.

All babyballet teachers are fully qualified, fun and friendly and they make it their priority to ensure every child feels welcome and included. Of course, our teachers are fully vetted with an up-to-date CRB check in place, so you can be sure your child is in safe hands.

The classes are a great social setting for parents and carers too, so you are sure to make some new friends while you’re there with your little stars!

You’ll need to book any classes in advance, so when you’ve found the right class from the options below and clicked on the booking link, your nearest school and all the information you need can be found here.

We look forward to welcoming you and your little ones to the magical world of babyballet very soon!

Tinies (18 months to 3 years)

Introducing toddlers to the basics of ballet through movement, play and song.

Toddlers and young children are encouraged to further develop and explore their ability to move, dance and sing in our Tinies classes. Still with their main 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 so do the adults!

Movers (3 and 4 years)

Encouraging pre-school children to use their imagination while learning basic ballet skills through enhanced movement and song.

Focusing on developing gross motor skills, basic ballet, rhythm and confidence, this class helps children feel comfortable with their own natural ability and their surroundings. Increased dancing 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.

Mother and daughter team, Claire and Barbara are immensely passionate about babyballet® and have worked tirelessly since 1999 to make it into the award-winning reputable concept it is today – which now has 70 franchised schools teaching over 11,000 children every week.

Claire’s dream of bringing ballet to everyone – not just the elite – started thanks to her own painful experiences.  She attended classes from the age of three but instead of being the star pupil, as you might expect – as her mother and babyballet co-founder, Barbara Peters, was a professional dancer and teacher – she and ballet didn’t fit together for whatever reason.

“I loved ballet but it didn’t love me. I was the wrong shape and I felt that only the best were accepted. It left me with a tremendous lack of self-confidence and a very poor body image which followed me through to later life,” she says.

Working closely alongside her mother, she set to work to bring fun, non-competitive quality pre-school classes to pre-schoolers, which would be focused on learning to dance through fun and increasing every child’s confidence.
