What happens in a Tippy Toes Ballet Class?
At Tippy Toes we structure our classes into three exciting sections:
Movement & Fun - The first section of the class combines a warm up with a number of imaginative ballet exercises. This is a wonderful way for your child to express themselves, whilst enjoying the benefits of ballet.
Confidence & Grace - This section of the class will focus on coordination and poise, spinning, stretching, balancing, hoping, jumping, galloping and skipping. We combine movement and musicality to encourage self expression and confidence.
Imagination & Dance - In the last section we will be helping the children explore ballet and movement using their imagination, taking them on an inspiring themed dance adventure at the end of each class.

Tell me about fees payable?
Fees are payable on a per term basis. Your child is welcome to join at any point during the term providing there is space. Fees are then calculated on a pro rata basis.

How long are the classes?
Classes are either 35 or 40 minute long, there is also time built in during the class to ask your teacher any question that you may have.
Each class is kept to a minimum number so that your child receives the individual attention that he/she requires.
Can my child do a trial class?
For those few that feel a trial class is necessary, Tippy Toes Ballet offer a two week trial pack, this must be asked for at time of enquiry.
This entitles you to 1 class each week over a 2 week consecutive period and is to be paid prior to the start of the first class. Once you've decided to start up at Tippy Toes Ballet the remaining balance for the term needs to be paid before the 3rd lesson. Your child is welcome to wear something comfortable to move around in, and if they don't have any ballet shoes yet, then bare feet or soft shoes are fine.
There is limited availability for trial pack spaces in each class, please check before booking. One trial pack per child.

Ballet shoes are required with sewn elastics and hair should be tied off of their face in a neat ponytail, bun or plait. Boys should wear shorts and t-shirt with ballet shoes.
