ABOUT THE CLASS
Mum & Baby Ballet (Babies up to 2
Our ballet classes will not only support you
As you dance, you’ll also be creating a deep bond with your baby, whether she’s waiting to be born or worn in a sling. During pregnancy, her senses start to develop very early on, and at 14 weeks she can already hear. Once she arrives, she’ll find the gentle movements and classical music of Barre & Baby soothing and relaxing.

What to expect
What to bring
If you’re coming to a Mum&Baby Ballet class, your baby should also be in comfortable, soft clothes that allow her to move and kick happily.
Bring a sling that offers a tummy-to-tummy or back-hold. (I don’t recommend cradle-hold or forward-facing slings for this class.) If you’re not sure which carrier is right for you and your baby, try visiting your nearest Sling Library. I have extra carriers I’m happy to lend, but please get in touch before the class to reserve one.
