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.

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.

See more at including our time table on the website.

I look forward to welcoming you and your little stars to the magical world of babyballet very soon!

Your baby can enjoy our classes from the day they are born up until they are 13 months old! If you are looking for a fun and engaging activity which will help with your baby’s development then this is the class for you!

At Baby Swimmers we follow the Starfish Awards, so little ones can gain water confidence and build a foundation to swim unaided in the future. We play games and sing songs which are skill related and also teach water safety skills so they can learn to swim back to the side, hold on and climb out when they are strong enough.

Our structured classes work towards this and are also fantastic for bonding with your little one, as well as enjoying yourselves in a fun relaxed atmosphere, which we always ensure is at your little one’s own pace including underwater swims. Babies use their natural reflexes when they are in water, so it is always a good idea to start as soon as you can, as swimming is a great workout and helps to strengthen their muscles and also increases alertness.

For toddlers we follow the STA Stanley Awards, so again little ones can gain water confidence and build a foundation to swim unaided. For this age group we still sing songs and have fun with games and also start to teach the basic strokes, continuing with water safety skills and teaching your toddler to hold on, turn, then push off the side to swim to you independently. Classes will focus on floating, learning to tread water, rolling, push and glides, diving for sinkers and more.

Swimmers Academy is for our older swimmers where we focus on stroke technique and stamina, classes run for any age from Beginners and go through to Gold also incorporating Lifesaving Awards.
All teachers are fully qualified with specialist training for your little ones. Our classes are child led to ensure each child is taught and developed at their own pace.

We Swim at Best Western Kilima Hotel, Emperors Leisure Centre, New Earswick Pool, Pocklington School, Robert Wilkinson Primary School, Roko & Stamford Bridge Junior School

Music classes for children from birth based on an understanding of the whole child, led by qualified teachers and using high quality instruments.

Everyone experiencing these sessions comments on the sense of calm, the children’s focus and the incredible range of skills they develop, 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 locally – immeasurably more than just music lessons.

We introduce 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.

I offer baby, toddler and pre-school lessons from 1 month old to 4 years from nurturing baby classes to independent swimming at Carr Junior School in Acomb, York :
Monday 9.30 – 11.30
Thursday 9.30 – 11.30
Friday 9.30 – 11.00

I also run classes after school times for complete beginners to Improvers from water confidence to stroke development at Robert Wilkinson School, Strensall, York :
Monday 4.00-6.00 pm
Tuesday 3.30 (parent and child class 2-5 years)
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!
