10 Magical Years of babyballet East Herts and West Essex!

A decade of dance, smiles, and making dreams come true! We’re thrilled to congratulate our wonderful Miss Catherine and Mr Saul, the dynamic husband-and-wife duo behind babyballet East Herts and West Essex, on their remarkable journey of love, passion, and dedication to the world of preschool dance. Let’s take a moment to look back at their journey and applaud their unwavering dedication and profound impact on our babyballet community!

It all began when a friend from Arts Ed shared her incredible career as a babyballet® franchisee on Facebook. Catherine and Saul were immediately captivated by the enchanting world of babyballet®! They knew this was their calling, a chance to share their love for dance with young children, and they embarked on this magical adventure together.

Coming from performance backgrounds, Catherine and Saul recognized the significance of introducing children to the world of dance. They were driven by the happiness they witnessed in the little stars during the classes, and for them, there couldn’t be a more fulfilling way to make a living than by bringing joy to children’s lives through dance.

Since those early days, Miss Catherine and Mr Saul have gone on to build an absolute empire of JOY! Their franchise stretches across five areas, leaving a lasting impression of the lives of countless families in Bishop’s Stortford, Braintree, Cheshunt, Epping, and Hertford. Together with their remarkable team of teachers, they’ve introduced THOUSANDS of little ones to the joy of dance. As we’re sure you can tell, they are passionate advocates of ‘magical memories’ and Miss Catherine and Mr Saul are true champions of the babyballet ethos and everything we stand for.


It has been ten years filled with countless “firsts” – the first week of classes, the first show, and witnessing their own children, Ella and Jude, experience their first babyballet® classes. These moments have been nothing short of wonderful. But what truly warms their hearts are the stories of grown-ups who’ve reached out to thank them for making a significant impact on their little ones’ lives. From helping shy children come out of their shells to witnessing non-verbal children find their voices, these are the rewards that truly matter to our kind, special, franchise pair.
