Children's Dance Classes in Plymouth

Classes are designed first and foremost to be fun and enjoyable.  I am a firm believer that a child thrives on encouragement and praise and this, together with developing self-esteem forms the basis of my approach to teaching.


My aim is to maximise your child's confidence, co-ordination, self-expression and appreciation of music within the framework of the performing arts.


If your child has lots of enthusiasm, wants to learn more skills and cultivate their existing ones, then these are the classes for them!

Baby Ballet


This baby ballet class is a lovely introduction to ballet for little ones aged 2 ½ to 4 years.  It involves a lot of fun, lots of imagination, props and a different 'adventure' every half term


"Sophie's confidence has come on a lot since she started the classes.  I really like the way they have to use their imagination and she often repeats the class at home pretending she is the teacher with her dolls"



"Melissa has a beautiful rapport with each of the girls.  The way in which she takes the girls on an 'adventure' incorporating ballet moves is fantastic.  It really keeps them all engaged.  The atmosphere is always relaxed and welcoming which is lovely."



"I have loved watching her confidence grow - I can't thank you enough for that."



"Darcey loves going to ballet every week!  I wouldn't think about taking my daughter anywhere else"



"Watching my little girl join in and enjoy her ballet lesson every Wednesday is a delight"
