Nothing to pay now and we will add you to the waiting list and be in touch once we hit the magic number 6!

This is a ballet class suitable for children aged 18 months - 3 years and the main carer fully participates in the class with their dancing star.

Movers: 3 & 4 years

This is a ballet class suitable for children aged 3-4.5 years. Parents sit and watch (may be invited to leave the room in some areas - franchise dependent) so that the dancing star can be encouraged to be more independent.

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 joining fee. Your little star will receive a Welcome Pack filled with fun and benefits for both you and them to enjoy. 

Our fees are £5.50 per class for babyballet tots, £5.75 per class for babyballet tinies, movers and £6 per class for groovers, payable in half term blocks in advance. Tappers classes are available for movers and groovers starting at £2.25 per week. There is no need to sign up via the website again.
