Babies Ballet for 2-3 year olds
Each week we will use the same warm up to get them ready for graded work. It will include some basic ballet exercises such as "Good Toes" and "Naughty Toes", plies and points, gallops and bounces, which will build into jumps and hopping eventually encouraging them to skip. Each term we will have a dance we work on every week as well as two prop exercises that will encourage rhythm, co-ordination and musicality .
In ballet we have uniform for all children from Pre-Reception up. Babies Ballet are welcome to wear a RB Arts Academy t-shirt and leggings, or any dress up tutu or ballet outfit they have. All ballet shoes though must be purchased through Bexx so they are fitted correctly.

These classes will have a similar layout to the babies ballet class but contain harder movements and will be working at a quicker pace as well as the end routine having more content.
We now have available classes for children aged 4+ This class will have more structured lessons and will contain the same exercises throughout the year so that children can work towards an exam when they are ready.
