Babyballet in South Woodford

Looking for a new activity close to Loughton, Chigwell or Woodford for you and your small people this New Year? If you used to enjoy a bit of ballet yourself you might want to find out what Miss Karen can offer you in Woodford. She says she is, “delighted to bring the magic of babyballet to children in the South Woodford area.”

Her team of two teachers teach 170 babyballet stars each week in our babyballet dance classes for little boys and girls. Babyballet teachers all undergo babyballet training, and with professional dance and teaching experience, they strive to create a fun, friendly and inclusive experience for everyone no matter age or ability. There are classes for tinies, movers and groovers, classes for tots, toddlers, preschoolers and school starters on Mondays, Fridays and Saturdays at Redbridge Drama Centre in South Woodford. 

At babyballet, they offer four stages of ballet dance classes, for young children aged 6 months to 6 years, plus a tap dancing class for children over 3 years. Their programme fits well within the UK Government’s Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework, with classes providing the opportunity for babies and young children to learn and develop key life skills in a healthy and safe environment. It’s also a great way for parents and carers new to the Chigwell, Loughton or Woodford areas to meet up and make new friends too!

Babyballet was set up by a mother and daughter team, Claire and Barbara. They are passionate about babyballet and have worked tirelessly since 1999 to make it into the award-winning school franchise it is today with over 100 licensed schools teaching over 20,000 children every week in the UK, Australia and New Zealand.

After a trial class, other classes need to be booked and paid for one term in advance. They offer a three week introductory trial for £15.
