BALLET BABIES - BORN 2014
It’s time for your bouncy wee groover to take their first steps into the world of ballet & dance.
Ballet Babies is a unique programme designed by Nadine for mini movers who love to jump, twirl, giggle, sing & boogie.
Term by term we move through a year-long programme linked to the 4 seasons.
There are no uniform requirements - dress to express & wear bare feet to feel secure & grounded.

When spring arrives in Term 4, your young dancer will have the opportunity to move onwards & upwards into Rosette 1, ready for new & exciting adventures such as shining onstage in our annual September show, & showing their growing independence in their very first Rosette exam.
