Our teacher and assistant will gently encourage every child to choose a teddy and sit in a circle , play games and enter a world through storytelling , music and actions & props. But we never force a child to participate, knowing that confidence is built by encouragement and support and progressing at a child's own pace. Within a couple of sessions, children participate fully and are quickly encouraged to explore a wonderful world of culture , physical development and creativity.
But what to wear? Initially we suggest bare feet with leggings/ shorts & T shirt. However lots of Dinkie ballerinas seize the opportunity to wear a tutu or fairy dress- as long as it's not long or cumbersome we don't mind. Boys are highly regarded in the world of ballet and most welcome in all our classes. They initially wear shorts and T-shirts.
There is a small pop up shop in the waiting room selling ballet shoes and uniform. Top Tips: Borrow from friends before buying; pre-order your ballet shoe size to avoid disappointment on the day.
