Baby Ballet is a mixture of song, dance and sensory exploration for children aged between 6 and 18 months. A teacher from the award-winning Babyballet Song & Dance Academy (www.babyballet.co.uk) visits the nursery every week and expertly helps the children to express themselves in a safe and caring environment. As well as being great fun, the classes help the children to develop confidence, balance, co-ordination and social skills.
This is a weekly class for the under 2’s, led by a teacher from Rhythm Time (www. rhythmtime.net), which focuses upon music and movement. It provides the children with a well-thought-out musical experience which involves singing and playing instruments.
