These are funs class for 1.5-3 year olds with parent/guardian's full participation, led by Miss Lisa.
For Baby Ballet the normal class format is as follows:
- Hello Song
- Sitting & Standing Warm-ups
- Basic Ballet Steps
- Animal Mimes
- Travelling Dance Steps
- Free Dance
For this class the children should bring a teddy bear as the children and bears all go on an exciting adventure!
With an inspiring variety of music the children will dance to action songs, piano music, classical pieces, nursery rhymes and even pop songs sometimes! The use of props, including fairy wands, scarves, pictures and musical instruments helps to focus and inspire the children and encourage rhythm and natural movement.
Throughout the class the child dances with the parents support. Children will benefit most if they are able to walk but don't worry if your child isn't walking yet, these classes will help their development and you can hold their hands or carry your child as much as you need to. If your child isn’t yet 18 months but is able to walk and you think he/she would benefit from the class you’re welcome to give them a try as long as they’ve turned 1.
Once a child reaches the age of 2, if they are confident enough to participate without your support they can move into our exciting Monkey Moves classes! From the age of 3 they can join our delightful Princess Pre-Ballet classes as well an age appropriate class in Tap & Modern.
