Babyballet is a fun, award-winning pre-school dance concept for girls and boys from 6 months to 6 years. With schools right across the UK, babyballet dance classes allow babies, toddlers and young children to enjoy the physical and social benefits of ballet, song and dance in a safe, caring, positive and informal environment.
With a real focus on learning through play, the unique babyballet syllabus offers four key stages of ballet and tap classes where every child can build their confidence and social skills, learning manners, discipline and respect while developing their basic ballet technique, coordination, musicality, balance, posture and rhythm.

Sing and play through our structured awards programme and see your baby progress to a confident little swimmer. From 6 weeks old to 12 years old.
Babies can start at Baby Swimmers as soon as you and baby are ready and happy to do so and through fun and games we progressively develop your babies natural reflexes to encourage voluntary swimming movements in the water which will build a foundation for your baby to swim unaided.
Baby Swimmers benefits both parents and babies as whilst you are interacting and bonding in the water together, you are also benefiting from learning water safety and increased water confidence. It is also physically and mentally beneficial for your baby and enjoyable for you both.
Research has shown that early swimming can benefit your baby by helping to develop water confidence, strength, co-ordination & alertness, whilst also learning water safety and having fun.
We follow the Starfish Awards through the STA and once children are aged over 2 they progress on to the Stanley Awards. Once your child reaches 5, they progress onto Swimmers Academy, where we develop swimming techniques and build stamina, classes here are for beginners as well as children that have been through the Baby Swimmers courses.
