BoPPAMinis - Non-Exam Classes

babyballet® Movers (4-5 years) - The babyballet® Movers class 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. Our Movers participate in the mid year show and also a very special babyballet® Presentation at the end of the year.

babyballet® Groovers (5-6 years) - 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 skills such as spatial awareness, numeracy and communication. Using simple steps as the basis of the class, children learn ballet in a friendly and non-competitive environment. Our Groovers participate in the mid year show and also a very special babyballet® Presentation at the end of the year.
