Welcome to babyballet

East and West Thurrock, Laindon, Rayleigh, Southend and Leigh-on-Sea

Hi! I’m Miss Keiley and I’m delighted to bring the magic of babyballet dance classes to the children of East and West Thurrock, Laindon, Rayleigh, Southend and Leigh-on-Sea. 

How to book a babyballet class:

Our babyballet class timetable is listed below, where you can book a three-week introductory trial for just £21.

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.

Tappers: 3 years+

This is an additional tap dancing class suitable for children aged 3+ years that are enrolled in Movers & Groovers.

Movers: 3 & 4 years

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 £6.50 per class for babyballet tinies and babyballet movers, and are charged termly and paid monthly by direct debit. Tappers classes are available for movers starting at £3 per week. There is no need to sign up via the website again.

Meet the franchisee

Miss Keiley – Franchisee and teacher

EastThurrock_Star babyballet franchising

I have been dancing since I was young enough to be a Mover and have been dancing ever since! After competing and dancing all through childhood and into my teens and early twenties, I started my dance career part-time whilst I studied to be a Primary School teacher but after having a baby decided that school teaching took too much time away from my son, so focussed on babyballet full-time in 2015. This has been the best decision I have made because it allows me to spend some much-needed time with my growing family – two boys who have both been to babyballet classes and loved them! In addition to babyballet, I run an upper school and therefore I am qualified through the IDTA to teach ballet and all other disciplines.

“My little girl is only on her third lesson and has already picked up some of the moves but most importantly has learnt to be patient and wait her turn which is something she is not used to! We absolutely love it!”
