Pre-school dance classes in Motherwell, Baillieston & East Kilbride put on professional pantomime style babyballet show

babyballet® Motherwell, Baillieston & East Kilbride held their annual Starmakers show at Cardinal Newman High School in Bellshill. This was the final show for many toddlers and young children after learning to dance with babyballet®, who provide pre-school dance classes for kids.

Ava said the best part of her show was seeing Twinkle and Teddy the bears!
Her mummy, Nicola, said: “It was fantastic seeing all the kids on stage having so much fun. I was so proud of Ava and her friends, they worked so hard for the show.”

Over 70 babyballet® stars aged between 3 and 6 years old bowled over 400 excited parents and family members on Sunday 25th after having to postpone the professional pantomime style dance show three weeks earlier, due to the snow.

 

babyballet® characters Twinkle and Teddy the adorable bears, Flutterstar the fairy, Chuck the cowboy and Grandad Jack, the King of the Castle in the Sky joined all of the children on stage in this wonderful performance, where they thoroughly enjoyed dancing for their audience.

During their Big Day Out, the babyballet® characters visited the zoo and loved the sights of the elephants and cheeky monkeys. Exhausted, they went for a little nap with Twinkle and Teddy the bears before hitting the beach to build sandcastles. After all that excitement, they went home to the Castle in the Sky for a party with all the babyballet® princesses and princes. The elegant swan princesses and princes followed as well as a group of lively tap dancers before the big babyballet® finale.

The audience were delighted as they clapped and even danced along at times!

“The magic sparkle in the children’s eyes, it makes it all worthwhile!”

Franchisee and owner of babyballet® Motherwell, Baillieston & East Kilbride Miss Charlotte, commented: “The snow may have stopped us once, but definitely not twice as when our show finally took off it was amazing! The children made us all proud as they truly danced their hearts out on the big stage, with lots of happy tears and laughter from the audience, I was not the only one to agree with how brilliant the children where. The teachers worked hard with the children in the lead up to the event and made them feel at ease on the big day where the bond between dance teacher and pupil was lovely to see. A lot of hardwork is put into each production but when you watch (from the wings) how much fun everyone is having, the smiles on everyone’s faces and the magic sparkle in the children’s eyes, it makes it all worthwhile!”

“Charli May loved the show her favourite part was being with her friends on the stage dancing.”
“I thought the show was fantastic and well organised. The hard work that goes into the shows was definitely proven. All of the staff work so hard to get the kids ready, help them to overcome any shyness they may have and help build up their confidence as well.
Miss Johanne and all of the teachers work very hard with the kids and are very dedicated to the job” Say’s Kirsty.
