Our classes have been specially designed by Royal Academy of Dance qualified, Northern Ballet School graduate Nicola Ciotta. Dancers can start from walking age through to 4 years of age, and have been developed to encourage confidence whilst learning the ballet basics in a fun and nurturing atmosphere. The fully structured 30 - minute classes offer a magical introduction into the World of ballet, engaging children in age-appropriate dance, whilst learning rhythm, posture, co-ordination and balance through a fun, structured class. Teachers are encouraging and positive and family and friends are very welcome to come and watch. It's all part of the performance!
Watch your child interact with others, make new friends, work as a team and discover new ways to communicate and create.
