Mrs Natalie Figura (babyballet Mummy to Bunnie Figura - aged 6 months), Halifax
"Ever since my daugter Bunnie was born, all my dreams came true. I could not wait for her to start ballet at babyballet and from her very first class we were both mesmerised by the magic and ethos of the dance school.
Bunnies first dance teacher, Miss Sonya, fits every young girls' expectation of a fairy princess. The genuine kindness and consideration shown by Miss Sonya to each of the boys and girls, whatever their level and ability is so touching; adapting the dance scheme to fit each individual childs' needs. Bunnie started babyballet when she was 6 months old and the attention to detail and care that goes into each and every lesson by Miss Sonya and her team is incredible.
Bunnie and I have the most wonderful half an hour where we are transported into a world of magic, fairies and make believe. For myself it is lovely to watch my little girl slowly develop over the weeks and I cannot wait until she is clapping along independently to the songs. The atmosphere is wonderfully supportive and creative and it is also a lovely opportunity to meet new mums and make friends.
Overall, I would say it would be every little girl and boys dream to be part of babyballet - a must for any budding ballet dancing princess or prince. From my short time at the dance school it is already clear to see that children shine like little stars; and it really is true at babyballet little girls and boys really do love to dance."
Annette Cole (babyballet Mummy to Annie-Mae), Boston
"I would just like to take this opportunity to tell you how much we look forward to your sessions and the difference already, in only three weeks, is quite amazing! I would highly recommend these sessions to anyone."
Heather (babyballet Mummy to 3 year old twin girls), Motherwell
"After completing my trial classes, my twin girls have now become babyballet members! The classes are fun but also rewarding and my girls really enjoy them. This is not only due to the class content, but the main reason is Miss Laura - she is fantastic! The class is delivered with an ideal mix of dance and fun and she has a great way with all of the movers and tappers. I would not hesitate to recommend babyballet and also a big thank you to Miss Laura for making the class what it is."
Sarah Butters (babyballet Mummy), Leeds
"babyballet is the one class we simply can't miss. Eliza loves it and when I see her smile when she pulls on her tutu, I love it too!"
Tracey Halpin (babyballet Mummy to Serena - aged 3 years), Brighton
"My daughter Serena (Age 3) attends babyballet Brighton and West Hove Movers class with Miss Lucy. This is her first term and my only regret is that we didn't start sooner - Oh the time wasted! Serena has loved dance from day one and had been asking to start ballet for a while. I was keen at such a young age so thought it should be a fun introduction into dance to allow her to explore her love of music, movement and tutus.
I found many other classes too formal too soon. The supportive, positive, relaxed, fun, happy feel of babyballet fitted that bill perfectly. The mix of familiar songs and babyballet favourites caught her imagination from the first class. From that first week she has practised daily, every morning she asks if it's ballet today and when the answer is yes, her excitement levels go through the roof! She cannot wait to show Miss Lucy her smiley feet!
I knew she would enjoy babyballet with the focus on positive praise and encouragement, but I am also delighted with how quickly she is learning. babyballet is just a perfect introduction to dance for any star in the making. It feels as though we have joined a giant family, so excited by her first steps, in hopefully a lifelong love of dance."
"Miss Emma does a sterling job with our little ballerina in her babyballet class in Halesowen. Not only does she teach the girls and boys coordination, songs and fun dance moves but she teaches them patience and the importance of sharing allowing the children to enjoy and have lots and lots of fun during their time in class. My daughter just loves her ballet class and looks forward to dressing up and dancing to the lively music each week. She has learned the routines and even practices at home. It really is a worthwhile investment to your child’s future. My daughter will always remember the fun she has with Miss Emma and her class mates and she hopefully will take the skills forward. It really does involve the whole family too as we take it in turns as to who gets to watch my daughter's class from week to week. Mummies and daddies have lots of fun joining in too and the dress up and certificates at the end of each term really do provide a sense of achievement for the little ones. Great fun all round! especially because of Miss Emma. Thank you - we always look forward to the new term". x
Claire Westwood (Franchisee Bournemouth & Poole)
"I am so thankful that I have found a job as much as I enjoyed dancing".
Laura Watkins (Franchisee Romford, Billericay & Brentwood)
"I wish I had started babyballet years ago".
Miss Jessie (babyballet Franchisee), babyballet Dartford, Bexley & Bromley
"The training to become a babyballet franchisee was fantastic. At the initial training course, every aspect of running your own business was covered, from teaching classes to office and admin management. Most importantly, I felt that I became part of the babyballet team and no matter what question I have had since, big or small, Claire and the team have always been there for me."
Alex Winters (CBeebies)
“I asked Claire (O'Connor) if babyballet would perform in The Big Top at Little Fun Fest in Manchester and York as I thought it might just be a good fit. I was wrong. It was a GREAT fit! The children loved the babyballet show and wanted to watch more and more. My own children haven’t stopped watching the babyballet DVD ever since! babyballet really appealed to all ages at Little Fun Fest and both boys and girls. It is a perfect way to introduce and encourage singing, music and dancing to a broad audience.I soon realised that there was much more to babyballet than just ballet and I am definitely inviting them back to Little Fun Fest again!”
Jess Balodis, Lollibop Children's Festival
"It was a great pleasure to welcome babyballet to Lollibop 2014. As an annual event, Lollibop is always looking for new and exciting activities and babyballet provided an assortment of sessions across the three days that entertained both children and adults! We would like to say a big thank you to the team for all their hard work, professionalism and energy."
