Which class is right for my child?
Our baby classes are for children aged 6-18 months. It's a great time to introduce babies to the world of music and dance. We use a variety of sensory props to engage them, including; glow balls, bells, scarves, pom-poms, ribbons and feathers. We sing nursery ryhmes, boogie along to pop music, listen to a variety of world music. It is a fantastic class to bond with baby and help their coordination with clapping, waving, reaching for props and so much more!
This class is designed for children aged 18 months, all the way up to 4 years. Classes may be split (18 months to 2.5 years and Over 2.5 to 4). It is very much a parent/carer participation class, but you will notice older dancers become increasingly independent as the term goes on. We do a fun warm-up (teaching the children body awareness and stretching), songs with actions, travelling steps (walking on tip toes, marching, galloping, twirling), and finish off with our imagination section, keeping your little ones thoroughly enthralled throughout!
Our Baby Ballet class follows on from Tots Toes introducing your 3-5 year old to the world of ballet, in a fun and imaginative way. This is not your typical stand in a line and follow the teacher ballet class. Tip Toes makes ballet fun with the use of imagary and props, and a wide variety of music from Classical, to Broadway with everything in between. We teach all the basics of ballet including plies (Knee bends), tendus (Pointing toes), skipping, twirling, galloping and rises. We have some beautiful props- tiaras/ crowns, wands, ribbon rings and scarves.
– All Tappy Toes children's dance classes have been created in accordance with the EYFS guidelines. –
