So happy I found babyballet! Miss Emma engages with the children effortlessly and keeps them focused and entertained. We get through so many songs and exercises in just half an hour. What was going to be a winter hobby for us has now become a year round hobby! My daughter talks about ballet almost every day, it makes her so happy! Would highly recommend ?

“Before we signed up to babyballet® I was having to create content for over 5 preschool classes a week… it was exhausting! Looking back, the babyballet® license has been so beneficial for my dance studio, ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE!

We now run over 12 preschool classes a week including preschool tap! The support, the marketing materials, the graphics, stories and branding are crucial in providing an amazing experience for our families.”
