BABYBOP classes
are a fusion of dance, fitness and fun!

BABYBOP classes are high energy and imaginative, serve as an introduction into the performing arts, aim to build confidence, develop social skills, and by nature improve and develop good posture and poise, balance,co–ordination, flexibility, rhythm and timing.

We use elements of a variety of dance styles to include: Jazz, Street, Pop, Lyrical, Musical Theatre, Latin, Tap, Modern, Ballet, Acrobatics, Contemporary and Bollywood.

BB pupils follow two class plans per term which gives them a real opportunity to perfect their dance routines through repetition, and to learn something about the themes which are usually based on a music genre or decade of music, a style of dance, or something topical such as a global sporting event.

We might go by the name of BABYBOP but there is nothing babyish about our classes - we explore grown up themes in a clever child friendly way.

Here are some of the themes we have explored
in the past....

Music from the 70’s
Music from the 80’s

BABYBOP teachers are all CRB checked and have Public Liability Insurance.

The Classes:

(12 – 24 months)

BabyBopBasics is a 30 minute music and movement class for children aged 12 - 24 months as serves as a warm-up to BabyBop.

Expect great music (no nursery rhymes) and colourful props!
(2 – 4 yrs)

BABYBOP is designed for children aged 2 – 4 years (where possible classes will be split 2-3 and 3-4) Children from 18 months are welcome to attend for a trial.

This class does require some participation from a carer however as confidence builds adults can take a back seat or (more often than not) choose to join in the fun.
Like any good dance class we kick things off with an energetic warm-up which is then followed by a number of dance routines performed to music. Each routine works on either a skill such as ‘jumps’ or is performed with a prop to include hula hoops, dance ribbons, pompoms, hats and our giant themed flags.
After all the running, jumping and twirling we end each class with a cool down and some relaxation so that (fingers crossed) you and your baby bopper will leave us feeling cool, calm and collected.
(4 – 6 yrs)

This dance class is designed for children aged 4 – 6 years as a follow on from BABYBOP.

Don’t be shy if you’re a BABYBOP novice - you don’t need any previous experience to join this class. KB works in a similar way to BABYBOP in that it follows a musical theme and incorporates the use of props however choreography and routines are more complex and taught at a faster pace. This is a high energy kiddie work out with extra emphasis on performance and technique. KB pupils will perform in groups, partners and individually.
(4 – 7 yrs)

Introducing PopBop for children aged 6 - 8 years.

Word on the street is that the older kids mostly want to dance to the latest chart hits so we came up with the idea of PopBop.

Popboppers will be taught commercial dance routines to songs currently being aired on the radio. This is the perfect class for all your wannabe pop stars.
