Hi! I’m Miss Gemma and I’m delighted to bring the magic of babyballet to children in the York area.

My babyballet class timetable can be found on the website where you can register for a three week introductory trial for just £15.

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.

Come Swimming, Be Safe, Have Fun!

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.

Suzuki Early Childhood Education (SECE) – Music classes for children from birth using the internationally renowned Suzuki Method

Everyone experiencing these sessions comments on the sense of calm, the children’s focus and the incredible range of skills they develop, both musical and personal.

Music at Heart is fast gaining a reputation for providing something that is refreshingly different from typical baby and toddler music groups offered in the locality – immeasurably more than just music lessons.

The Suzuki approach introduces children to music the way they are introduced to language – from birth. With both, for the best outcome, this early start is crucial. We talk to a baby because s/he is beautiful and because we feel affection, whether or not the baby understands. To underline this, Music at Heart offers free classes to newborns for the term in which they join.

0-3 Years: Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday 9.30 and 11am
3+ Years: Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday 1.45pm

Swimming with Linzi is all about having fun in a safe environment, from gaining water confidence to great stroke technique.

Tuesday 4.00 – 6.30 pm
Wednesday 4.00 – 6.00 pm

Children can go in by themselves at any age, when they are confident enough, I do not have a starting age limit. I treat every child as an individual and they progress happily at their own pace , with this in mind, all swimmers receive an STA certificate and woven badge each term, which are included in your fee.

Classes are fun based and relaxed with only 7 children in each class and the whole pool to ourselves, with only one lesson running at a time, which offers little distraction from other swimmers and lots of space. Children really enjoy their lessons and thrive learning to swim. I get to know all the children individually and adapt my teaching accordingly.

With over 10 years teaching experience, including my own 3 children, I am fully qualified STA Swimming Instructor, STA baby and pre-school teacher, lifesaving and recently completed Level 3 Diploma in Aquatic Teaching for Baby and Pre-school. Do check out my recommendations on Facebook!
