babyballet® Reading and Henley-on-Thames
babyballet® Reading and Henley-on-Thames 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 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.
babyballet®'s fully qualified, friendly and engaging dance teachers are joined in class by the babyballet® bears, Twinkle & Teddy, who help to encourage all the little stars to interact and share as they learn to dance without any pressure. We even offer a 3 week introductory trial so you can watch your little stars hop, skip and jump in our classes!
Give your child the chance to dance at babyballet® and experience the magic for yourself! Contact Miss Hollie on email@example.com! We cannot wait to meet you in our classes!
Our unique syallbus includes 4 stages of ballet classes:
TOTS (6 - 18 months)
The Tots class is a magical musical experience for parents/carers and babies and young toddlers, to enjoy together.
Using a combination of movement, music and props/toys, the Tots class is a great way to enhance your baby’s physical, communication and social/emotional development. The class provides a stimulating yet gentle introduction to song and dance, improving body awareness and self-control.
TINIES (18 months - 3 years)
The Tinies class introduces little ones to the basics of ballet using movement, play and song.
Building on the movement and songs taught in the Tots class, babyballet Tinies develop their physical and communication skills in this fun-filled, lively environment. Parents are still very much involved, as the children learn to move in time to the music whilst stimulating their imaginations and learning to count through song.
MOVERS (3 and 4 years)
The babyballet Movers classes encourages preschool children to combine their imaginations with dance using movement and song.
The preschool years are crucial in your little one’s development. Our Movers class focuses on the further physical development of your child through dance, in combination with the use of imaginative storytelling. The Movers class is more than just dancing – it also gives children the chance to learn valuable skills by responding positively to both the teacher and the other children in the class.
GROOVERS (4.5 - 6 years) Coming Soon!!
The final stage of babyballet is our Groovers class which focuses on improving co-ordination, self control and social skills, in a supportive and non-judgemental environment.
This school age class is a perfect way to bolster the preschool learning programme by working on core development skills such as spatial awareness, numeracy and communication, as well as furthering their dance technique through a more structured ballet program. Using simple steps as the basis of the class, children learn ballet in a friendly and non-competitive environment.
