Our baby ballet and tap classes are the perfect introduction to dance for walking babies, toddlers and pre-school children

Three different classes to match each stage of your child’s development

SK Ballet Babies for walkers through to four year old pre-schoolers

Our baby ballet classes are designed for toddlers and pre-school aged children who just love to dance to music. Boys and girls are welcome to bring along their favourite bear, doll or toy to join in the fun too.

We have three great classes to choose from, with each perfectly matched to the different stages of your child’s development…

STAGE 1: Mummy & Me Ballet classes for walking babies and 2 year old toddlers: From the moment they’re steady on their legs, your little one can join our Mummy & Me baby ballet class.  As the name suggests, parents stay in the room and join in the fun too. This class is a great way to introduce your child to the joys of ballet dancing, giving them the comfort of your hand to hold if they need it.  Mummy & Me baby ballet classes are ideal for children up to and including 2 years old.

STAGE 2: The next step – Advanced baby ballet classes for 3 year olds: So now you’re a little older and have grown in confidence, it’s time to spread your fairy wings and move on to our advanced baby ballet class.  Here, older toddlers dance on their own, enjoying age-appropriate ballet dancing activities to help really engage them through dance, music, imagination and fun.  Our advanced baby ballet classes are ideal for older toddlers aged 3 years old.

STAGE 3: Progression – Pre-school ballet classes for 4 year olds: You’re now aged four and almost ready for ‘big school’, which means you’re eager to learn more now! Our stage 3 class for four year olds who haven’t yet started school is designed to gently challenge and build on the ballet basics they’ve learned so far. In a supportive and encouraging atmosphere, little ones are prepared to join our main school by expanding both their ballet knowledge and developing their understanding of rhythm, timing, movement and ballet terminology. It’s still brilliant fun of course, with class content designed for maximum engagement.

Baby ballet classes for pre-school children at SK Dance Studio Wigan
Like all our classes, we take care to teach proper, safe technique right from the start and class sizes are limited to make sure each child gets the focus and attention they need to develop.  SK Ballet Babies is a great way to get your toddlers and pre-school aged children interested in a really rewarding and captivating activity that will keep on growing with them as they get older.  Your little ones learn the basics of ballet, hear ballet terms in both English and French and have lots of fun!
