Hi! I’m Matty and I’m delighted to bring the magic of babyballet dance classes to the children of Ashford, Headcorn and Canterbury. 

How to book a babyballet class:

Our babyballet class timetable is listed below, where you can book a three-week introductory trial for just £15 today.

The trial is the perfect introduction to babyballet, giving you and your child the chance to try out our ballet classes before signing up to a full term. Where spaces are available, the babyballet trial can start at any time during a term. Upon completion of the trial, you will be invoiced for the remaining sessions.

Which babyballet class should I book

Our preschool dance syllabus has been carefully designed to ensure each child is taught the principles of ballet and tap at the right developmental level while boosting confidence, and of course having lots of fun.

Our programme fits well within the UK Government’s Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework, with our classes providing the opportunity for babies and young children to learn and develop key life skills in a healthy and safe environment.

When signing your child up for a three-week trial, you will need to ensure they are within the age parameters outlined for each stage. If in doubt, please start in the lower age group to begin with as your teacher will liaise with you should your child need to move up a stage.

After registering, you will be sent an enrolment email full of information that will let you know what to expect. Please allow up to 48 hours to receive this email and double check your junk or spam folder!

Becoming a babyballet member

Following the introductory trial, you will receive an email containing all the details you need to continue with our classes and become a babyballet member. Along with term dates and information about how to make future payments to secure your place, you will be sent an invoice for the remaining weeks in the current term plus your one off babyballet membership fee. This covers your child’s insurance for the class, together with a membership pack. You can read more about what’s included here

Our fees are £6.50 per class for babyballet tots, tinies, movers and groovers, payable in half term blocks in advance. Tappers classes are available for movers and groovers starting at £3 per week. There is no need to sign up via the website again.

Meet the franchisee

Matty – Franchisee and teacher

babyballet Ashford and Biddenden dance classes for children from 6 months to 6 years old run by Matty

I started dancing later than most at the age of 16 but fell in love with the arts instantly. after leaving school I studied for my ba hons in dance education and ballet exams and went on to perform professionally for a few years in numerous productions & roles at various venues across the country, including the O2 Arena. however, it wasn’t long until I realised that the touring life wasn’t for me and my love for teaching was too strong to ignore.
I initially started teaching for babyballet® in 2015 and then became an admin support assistant in 2017 before eventually taking over the Ashford franchise in 2019. because of the popularity of our classes, I began growing the business further afield to Headcorn and Canterbury in 2020.
alongside running babyballet® ashford, headcorn & canterbury, i am a professional theatre director, choreographer and teacher proudly working extensively throughout the UK offering dance workshops, classes & tuition to many different ages.
most importantly, I am a dad to my wonderful daughter (and babyballet® alumni) fosse

"I have been a babyballet teacher for almost eight years, and I thoroughly love my job. Working with preschool children is so rewarding. I have seen so many children grow in confidence, make new friends, learn new things and find a love of dance from an early age. The syllabus is structured so that every exercise stimulates the children in a different way, which is excellent. I hope to keep teaching for many years to come!"
