Strictly Showbiz at babyballet Dartford, Bexley and Bromley

babyballet® Dartford, Bexley and Bromley held their annual Starmakers shows at The Orchard Theatre in Dartford and at the Langley Park School for Boys in Beckenham, where toddlers and young children graduating from babyballet® classes could showcase how well they had learned to dance.

Over 400 babyballet® stars aged between 3 and 6 years old charmed excited family members and friends on the 24th June and the 15th July  for FIVE superbly performed, professional pantomime style dance shows.

babyballet® characters Twinkle and Teddy the adorable bears, Flutterstar the fairy, Chuck the cowboy and Grandad Jack, the King of the Castle in the Sky joined all of the children on stage in this wonderful performance, where they thoroughly enjoyed dancing for their audience.

In Twinkle’s Dream, Flutterstar the Fairy gave her magic wishes to go anywhere she desired. She chose the circus first to revel in the juggling, flips and twists of the performers, then Grandad Jack’s Castle in the Sky to catch up with the fairies and princesses who live there. When Twinkle’s tummy was rumbling, she transported them to the magical food land made of all her favourites for a delicious feast before going to the sea to explore what wonderful creatures lived under there. After drying off, they settled down for a film in the best seats in the cinema with popcorn and then with one wish to go, Twinkle tried tap dancing. After Storytime, Twinkle woke up and she realised her friends were all still there and that dreams could come true so everyone celebrated in the finale!

The audience were delighted as they clapped and even danced along at times!

Jessie Lilley, principal of babyballet® Dartford, Bexley and Bromley noted:

2018 was our biggest and best year yet for babyballet shows! We were thrilled to move into our new venue at the Orchard which meant that for the first time all of the children across both days got to watch the show from the auditorium! Myself and all of the babyballet teachers couldn’t be prouder of our little stars and how brightly they shone on stage!”

One proud parent, Natalie said:

“Thank you so much for all your hard work. The show was amazing and Eleanor loved it! We’ve been playing ‘babyballet shows’ at home this afternoon and she’s been all the characters and dancers”

Lindsay, Mum of Holly, said: 

“it was amazing! One of the first things Holly said this morning was ‘Mummy am I doing my show again today?’ She said she wants to do it lots of times”
