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.

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 £5.50 per class for babyballet tinies, movers and groovers, payable in half term blocks in advance. Tappers classes are available for movers and groovers starting at £3.00 per week. There is no need to sign up via the website again.

Meet the franchisee

Miss Lea – Franchisee

Lea Lee-Nelson Lee Nelson Star Head Shot Headshot Babyballet Franchisee Leeds East

 

I started my dancing journey at the age of 3 in a local dance school in Leeds.

 

From there at the age of 16 I went on to train professionally at Northern Ballet School in Manchester for 3 years, graduating with a diploma in professional dance. During my time at NBS I was fortunate to perform ballets such as Giselle & Coppelia which I absolutely loved.

 

Once graduated I went on to perform professionally for 13 years, dancing on various cruise ships worldwide, also performing in casinos across the Algarve. I danced in the UK and internationally at corporate events and also in a UK Can-can tour!

 

I started teaching babyballet back in 2019 and fell in love straight away with the syllabus, and how much fun the classes were to teach.

 

I still can’t believe I get to call this my job as it’s so much fun! One of the highlights for me is seeing the smiles on the babyballet stars faces, enjoying themselves in class which is just amazing.

“Even before my daughter Bunnie was born, I could not wait for her to start ballet classes! From the moment Bunnie started at babyballet, both she and I have been thrilled to be part of this magical experience. Her teacher is so attentive, tailoring each class to the level and ability of each child. The 30 minutes we spend together in babyballet is a precious and memorable time.”
