babyballet® is the World's Leading Preschool Programme! Each class is delivered with an ideal mix of dance and fun and is the perfect introduction to dance. Not only do the classes teach the girls and boys coordination, songs and fun dance moves but they teach them patience and the importance of sharing while capturing their imagination. babyballet® involves the whole family as mummy and/or daddy have lots of fun joining in too and it is a lovely opportunity to meet other mums and dads and make new friends. Our babyballet® teachers can adapt their dance classes to fit each individual child's needs.
Our babyballet® classes are held in Papamoa, Bayfair, Mt Maunganui, Matua and Tauranga
18 months to 3 years
Toddlers adore learning the basics of ballet through movement, pay and song. Toddlers and young children are encouraged to further develop and explore their ability to move, dance and sing in our Tinies classes. Still with their parent or carer by their side, these fun classes involve lots of smiles and laughter - the perfect toddler dance class! The little ones love the dances and catchy songs - and so do the adults!
3 and 4 years
Our dedicated team delight in encouraging preschool children to use their imagination while learning ballet fundamentals through enhanced movement and song. Focusing on developing gross motor skills, basic ballet, rhythm and confidence, this class helps children feel comfortable with their own natural ability and their surrounds. Increased dancing and imagination are learnt in a fun environment with singing along to music, helping to build basic principles and social skills that will serve them well as they approach school age.
4 years to 6 years
As your child develops and learns about their world around them, these classes will focus on improving coordination, self-control and ballet technique in a non-competitive environment. This class takes children of school age to a higher level of musical ability, balance, posture and confidence - and is designed for children who love to dance and learn ballet, but don't want to feel intimidated by joining an examination class. Classes are welcoming, fun and a fantastic way to learn new dance routines and techniques without any pressure.
