The perfect class for little ones who LOVE to dance! Grownups stay to watch their dancer shine, and to support them as they grow in independence and confidence. The perfect class just for 3-4 year olds.
Feel the glow each week as you watch your little one learn to pliè in ballet first position, grand jetè over the stars, and twirl like fairies. This is your dancer’s first introduction into classical ballet technique, and you will be there to cheer them on every step of the way!
Join us in the studio as we explore storytelling through dance and song, and see your dancer develop in confidence as they begin to dance independently.
Your little butterfly will be fully supported as we learn the foundations of ballet and creative movement set to beautiful music sure to set the imagination on fire!
We use beautiful age appropriate props such as wands, scarves and ribbons to assist in learning movement. Each child receives a sticker or stamp at the end of class and a reward certificate at the end of the term.
When dancers turn 4 years old and is confidently working on one leg, they will move up to Fairy Ballet for an added challenge when they have mastered the Butterfly Ballet learning outcomes. All Dance Out Loud classes (with the exception of Stomp and ROAR!) are for both boys and girls, and feature engaging content for all little ones.
WHAT TO EXPECT
You will be welcomed into the studio for your first lesson, and introduced to some of the other dancers in your class. All lessons begin with a welcome, warm-up dance and skill progression. We learn new concepts each week, and build on these throughout the term and the year! Each class involves a creative movement exercise set to music to inspire young dancers.
WHAT TO WEAR
We have no set uniform at Dance Out Loud, and your dancer is free to express themselves in an outfit of their choosing.
For Ballet: Tights, stretchy leggings, a dress, skirt or ballet outfit are all perfect. Bare feet (no socks or stockings) are fine for your first class. We gift you a pair of proper ballet shoes + in-class fitting when you enrol, so no need to buy your own!

WHAT TO BRING
A bottle of water, a snack for after class, and a big smile!
All classes are £7.00 each week. Term fees are payable at the beginning of the term (or the remainder of the term if you join us in the middle)
After your introductory lesson, you can keep dancing with us by enrolling at Dance Out Loud.
Once enrolled, your spot is kept in class for a whole year (but you may ‘un-enrol’ if you need to before the year is over) Term fees are paid at the beginning of each term.
There are three terms each year of 13 weeks in duration that roughly follow the school calendar.
Our lessons are designed to show progress over many weeks, and many years! Unfortunately we do not offer casual or ‘drop-in’ classes.
