Who knew there was an entire day dedicated to being happy but there is, and it just so happens to fall every year on March 20th?
At babyballet, we take happiness as a given. After all, how can we not be happy with all the amazing dancing we have going on. Our incredibly dedicated and wonderful teachers find happiness every day as they watch all our little babyballet stars progress and grow. In fact, at babyballet HQ and beyond, happiness could quite well be our middle name.
And here is a list of just some of our top babyballet reasons to be cheerful. One, two, three!
First up in our top ten list has to be our babyballet teachers. We all have fond memories of certain teachers and everyone has their absolute favourite – that special person who just shines with happiness. This is just what we look for when we choose our babyballet teachers. Every single one is shining with enthusiasm and has a love for dance. Happiness really is what each and every babyballet teacher brings to their classes.
Our musical instruments!
At babyballet, we do more than teach dance. We teach creativity and an all-round love for movement and music. After all, without music what would we dance to? Best of all is making our own babyballet music. Which is why we encourage all our little ones to get involved with music and rhythm in every class. Whether it’s shaking a tambourine or banging a drum, learning to clap along or stamping our feet. Music is inside all of us and here at babyballet we know that music makes us all very happy indeed.
Good toes are happy toes!
Good toes and naughty toes. Now where have we heard that phrase before?! At babyballet, we make learning to dance FUN with a capital F which is why we teach little ones the basics of ballet and dance in a musical and storytelling environment. Twinkle and Teddy, the babyballet bears are never happier than when they get to watch themselves in this, one of our many video clips (see below) showing how much our babyballet stars enjoy their classes and get to stretch their feet in a classic ballet warm up for little feet. But more on Twinkle and Teddy later..
Our babyballet uniform!
It’s not compulsory to wear babyballet uniform …. it can often be easier to just wear what is most comfortable and easy! As your little ones start to grow in confidence, putting on a tutu or special dance shorts can really make a difference to their motivation and interest. Looking the part can make all the difference to how you feel which is why our babyballet uniforms have been designed to not only be easy to wash and wear but are also special in their own right. And when you feel special, you also feel happy!

Our babyballet shows!
What could make your little one happier than appearing in a specially choreographed babyballet show? Once children reach around 3 years old, their imagination and abilities start to take flight. Just watching them dress up and take part makes not only their teachers happy but lots and lots of babyballet parents. For them, a babyballet show is the highlight of the term! And not forgetting all of the babyballet movers and groovers who take part. We couldn’t do it without your sheer happiness and joy!
Sensory playtime for babyballet Tots!
There’s something for everyone at babyballet. Our Tots classes take children from 6 to 18 months old which sounds super young but why wait to start dancing? It’s never too early to take part in this magical experience. Using a combination of movement, music and props/toys, the Tots class is a great way to enhance your babies physical, communication and social/emotional development. The class provides a stimulating yet gentle introduction to song and dance, improving body awareness and self-control. Yet another reason to get happy!
Spending quality time with grown ups!
One of the aspects of babyballet that we know makes our grown ups happy, is getting to spend time with their little ones. Taking your child to a babyballet class gives you a unique parental experience that allows you the gift of special time with your little star. And wait till you talk to our babyballet teachers. They just LOVE teaching young children how to dance and move to music.
Expressing yourself and having fun!
There are no words necessary for this one. Just take a look at this picture! Now that’s what we call HAPPY!!
Dancing with flags and wands!
At babyballet we like to make our classes as fun and interactive as possible, in some of the exercises our babyballet stars pretend to be fairies, elves, soldiers and so much more, whilst dancing with flags and wands. Remember to wave your flag in class this week!
Twinkle and Teddy the babyballet bears!
How could anyone not be happy with these two around? Twinkle and Teddy, the babyballet bears, are endlessly popular and loved by all our little ones. With songs and actions inspired by these lovable characters, Twinkle and Teddy are not only our mascots but hold a special place in the hearts of all our babyballet family.
