Our programme has been expertly designed by the founders of Tippy Toes Ballet ®
2 - 4 year olds
Tippy Toe Twinkles
Tippy Toes Ballet classes are loved by little ones. Your child will enter the magical world of dance while you share in the experience of the class by participating alongside them.
This class introduces basic ballet technique through jumping, galloping, swaying and giggling whilst encouraging their confidence as they twirl around with joy.
Childrens' imagination is a key focus in our program, we use props and age appropriate songs. The main aim of our Tippy Toe Twinkle class is to encourage children to learn basic technique, follow instruction, and foster their imagination.
Tippy Toe Sparkle classes are aimed at children aged 3-4 years. Your child will be introduced to ballet moves that are a little more technical than in the younger class. This class is loved by parents and children alike. One adult stays in the studio to watch the class and experience their child blossom.
The aim of our Tippy Toe Sparkle class is to enhance their listening skills, introduce more independence and build confidence whilst following more choreographed dances. Children also discover they can tell a story and show emotion through dance, music and imagination.
Watch your child interact with others, make new friends, work as a team and discover new ways to communicate and create.
4 - 6 year olds
Tippy Toe Twirlers
In the Tippy Toe Twirler class for 4-6 year olds, we introduce more technique and enhanced ballet steps. Through this your child will
enjoy a sense of pride and achievement.
In this class we encourage our ballet dancers to focus and concentrate to a greater degree. It is now that we introduce more individual and partner activities, and the class will follow more complex choreography, whilst still keeping the focus on story telling, creativity and imagination.
Children leave with a bounce in their step and a smile on their face.
The next step at Tippy Toes is to move up to one of our Tippy Toe Stars classes, the structure of our classes follow the same theme as our pre school Tippy Toes Ballet classes, focusing on giving children a magical experience, enhancing self confidence whilst teaching technique, grace and poise.
Children will advance in their technique and be able to execute more developed choreography.
5+ year olds
The Ballet Academy
(Classes in Hitchin, Letchworth & Stotfold)
The Academy is for children from 5 years and over and gives the child the option of taking an exam.
These classes are a natural progression from our preschool classes at Tippy Toes Ballet. We also welcome children who would like to experience ballet for the first time and look forward to nurturing their love of dance.
The students will now be on their journey of study to become a ballet dancer, and through The Ballet Academy will be well equipped to do so.
It is now that we introduce the option of taking ballet exams through the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing. (I.S.T.D).
Uniform is required, this instils a sense of discipline, comradery and encourages the children to focus as a class in preparation for taking their exam and moving up to the next level.
