Baby Ballet logo

babyballet are supported Tommy's in 2016 with the first-ever Tommy's Danceathon event held across the UK. 

babyballet is a fun, award-winning pre-school dance concept for girls and boys from 6 months to 6 years. With schools right across the UK, babyballet dance classes allow babies, toddlers and young children to enjoy the physical and social benefits of ballet, song and dance in a safe, caring, positive and informal environment.

babyballet’s fully qualified, friendly and engaging dance teachers are joined in class by the babyballet bears, Twinkle & Teddy, who help to encourage all the little stars to interact and share as they learn to dance without any pressure.
