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.
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!”
The babyballet office has been inundated with feedback from parents and the stars of show themselves …
‘Abbie says “She loved all the music and it wasn’t too loud!” (haha) typical Abbie!
But honestly I thought it was brilliant, it’s really given Abbie confidence and I’ve no fear of her in future events. I loved being able to see how far she’s come on in her pre-school dance classes and all the fantastic results the teachers get from the children. babyballet® has VERY dedicated staff.’ Say’s Michelle, babyballet® Mummy.
