Weekly Classes & Groups (0-5 years) Oxford

Physical Play & Dancing

Hi! I’m Miss Charlotte and I’m delighted to bring the magic of babyballet to children in the Oxford area.

My babyballet class timetable can be found on our website HERE where you can register for a three week introductory trial for just £15.

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.

With a real focus on learning through play, the unique babyballet syllabus offers four key stages of ballet and tap classes where every child can build their confidence and social skills, learning manners, discipline and respect while developing their basic ballet technique, coordination, musicality, balance, posture and rhythm.

I look forward to welcoming you and your little stars to the magical world of babyballet very soon!
