Perhaps we’re a little biased, but at Twinkle Toes Ballet School, we reckon we have the best job in the world. Every week we get to come to our beautiful studios on the Northern Beaches and teach gorgeous ballerinas the fundamentals of dance.
While there are so many rewarding moments along the way, one of the greatest joys is watching the little ones flourish from week to week.
Baby ballerinas love the start of class, where we all sit for a make-believe tea party. They can even bring their favourite teddy from home to enjoy the class with them.
All classes are story-based and reference characters little ones already know and love, such as Miss Polly, Goldilocks, Little Miss Muffett and Teddy Bears Picnic. Through the use of much-loved songs that children will recognise, along with props such as tambourines, castanets and scarves, our baby ballerinas will always leave the class with big happy smiles.
There are also many great benefits our little ballerinas are gaining along the way. Our classes allow young children to move their bodies calmly and creatively through little story adventures such as riding horses with castanets or rowing boats with their legs.
Every term, we watch as they grow in confidence and trust in their abilities to move and explore through creativity.
We are continually amazed at how well our little ballerinas are able to imitate and learn during class. They learn in a fun way, for example, when we walk to the shops on tippy-toes or gallop with the horses to fetch medicine for Miss Polly. When classes are story-based, young children are drawn into following the movements. At a crucial time in their lives when their brains are developing and forming, ballet classes can be a great way to help them build concentration and other cognitive skills.
There are so many reasons to enrol your baby in our ballet classes, but there is one that stands out above them all. They will love it!
We would love to welcome your little ballerina to Twinkle Toes Ballet School.
