Tiny Tots Dance Classes
Our classes have a clear, well balanced structure to them and we put a lot of thought and time into ensuring you child is learning, having fun and their holistic development is being supported. Your child will learn an abundance of age appropriate skills and steps whilst being suitably challenged and encouraged each step of the way, we believe this provides the essentials of dance to become a creative, confident and versatile individual. As children progress through the classes they receive the appropriate teaching for that age and level, ensuring they build not only dance skills but an appreciation for the arts and many self development skills to ensure they are competent to move into the next class. Whilst we teach in a professional manner we have a special way of making our classes fun, engaging and very nurturing.
Class sizes are kept small to ensure children receive optimum teaching and feel comfortable within the class.
Please note the ages for classes are just a guideline and it is important children have the skills and confidence before moving up a class.
” One of the things I love most is the gentle structure you have. I wouldn’t be as keen if it was ‘free range’ so to speak….I like that you are so well organised and the micro activities/routines you have are short, sharp and continuous. Its only a short class but I feel like no time is wasted….and I appreciate that!” (Dasha’s mum)
Tiny Tots Programme
This is our little gem! Our Tiny Tots programme is where it all begins and we welcome new and aspiring Ballerina’s, making their dreams come to life. These classes are a beautiful gentle introduction for your child into the world of dance as we introduce basic Ballet steps in a creative manner, exploring music, themes, stories and props. Children build on social skills, learn to follow instructions and be part of a group.
These 30 minute classes are split into two age groups: Tiny Tots Baby Ballet (2-3yrs) and Tiny Tots Ballet (3-4yrs). Ages are approximate and also based on how your child goes in a class setting.
Our Tiny Tots classes are very engaging and lots of fun, your child will learn so much over the term! Parents stay and watch all of our Tiny Tots classes and our aim is for children to build up the confidence and independence to dance with their group and teacher whilst parents get to sit back and enjoy.

Tiny Tots Ballet / Jazz Combo
If you have a little groover in the house or you just cannot decide which style of dance your child is most suited to, our Ballet / Jazz combo class is for them. In this 40 minute class we carry out 20 minutes of Tiny Tots Ballet, where we provide a beautiful introduction to Ballet, learning basic Ballet steps and do lots of twirling, pointing and dancing in a creative manner through themes, stories and props. The second half of the class is where we turn up the music and our energy as we carry out 20 minutes of Jazz moves.
Our Tiny Tots Combo classes are super fun with lots of energy and aimed at children 3yrs – 4.5yrs old, although children just under 3yrs old are welcome to join.
We also have a Jazz only class for children who are not quite ready for the full 40 minute class, or prefer Jazz style over Ballet.
Parents stay and watch all of our Tiny Tots classes and our aim is for children to build up the confidence and independence to dance with their group and teacher whilst parents get to sit back and enjoy.
*Tiny Tots Ballet / Jazz Combo runs Tuesday and Friday at 10:40am
