    • Alison, Mum of 4 year old Daughter, Bournemouth

      We started going to classes with Baby Ballet just before my daughter's second birthday. The classes are great fun and have definitely helped with her confidence. Miss Claire is lovely -both the children and adults adore her, and we will be very sad to leave when my daughter starts school. They are very good in that they bring the children on gradually - when we first started, I used to dance with her, but we gradually back away as they grow in confidence. They keep sections of the class familiar, but also change the music regularly to help keep the children engaged. We can't fault Baby Ballet!

    • Kate, Mum to Emma (3 1/2 years), Lymington

      We've been going to babyballet classes for over two years now, and the main reason we go is Miss Claire - she is so good with the children and my daughter absolutely adores her. The whole set up is brilliant, with lovely classes and staff. The classes are fun for the girls - we didn't want to go to a class where it was very disciplined with strict uniform rules etc. My daughter is now fully kitted out with tutu etc, but to begin with she was able to go in her normal clothes so we could see if she enjoyed it before we had to spend the money. Emma has also started doing tap now too. The classes have also helped her with other social skills, such as listening and taking turns. She gets very excited with Twinkle Bear's visits! We are planning on having Emma's birthday party in November with Miss Claire too.

    • Clare, Mum of Two Girls (4 & 2 years), Christchurch

      Both my girls have been to Baby Ballet with Miss Clare and really love it. Milly (4) has now started drama classes with Miss Claire as she wants to continue with her after Baby Ballet. My favourite thing about the classes is that from the first day, Miss Clare knows all their names, and gets to know the children individually. She is very encouraging, and engaging with the children, and strikes a great balance between fun and good behaviour skills, such as listening and following instructions.

    • J, grandmother in Verwood

      My grand -daughter started babyballet when she was 3 years old. She was very shy and wouldn't join in. Miss Claire was very kind and patient. She is now a 4 yr old with more confidence and loves her ballet classes. Looking forward to moving up to Mini Movers and the christmas show. Thank you Miss Claire.

    Miss Claire started up babyballet Bournemouth and Poole in January 2012. With a background in dancing and acting she felt it was a natural progression to move into teaching and pass on her knowledge to the children of Bournemouth and Poole (Miss Claire’s hometown) Miss Claire began dancing at the tender age of 3 herself here in Bournemouth! She loved it so much that she never gave up. At 18 years old she was accepted into the prestigious Italia Conti Academy of Performing Arts where she completed a 3 year course in performing arts. After graduating she was lucky enough to travel the world dancing on Cruise Ships, and in Cabarets and Pantomimes. A keen actress she also performed in many plays which took her to many interesting places around the U.K and the World. Miss Claire is thrilled to be the Franchisee of babyballet Bournemouth and Poole and is extremely grateful to her family and friends for their continued support in her new adventure!
