Castlebar (Ballyheane)

Kilmaine - Shrule





One of the world’s most beautiful and revered art forms.

Children love building on a foundation of basic movements set to beautiful music as they grow their strength and abilities.

We offer a range of classes to suit all ages and abilities. Students who study ballet build self-control, body awareness and self-discipline as they learn to master increasingly technical moves.

Although children are offered the opportunity to take exams, there is no pressure and students can just dance for the love of it!

Ballet is a fantastic way for both girls and boys to develop and refine gross motor skills, flexibility, fitness and social interaction as well as an appreciation for music and Ballet as a performance art.

Ballet encourages poise, discipline and self-confidence and children gain a real sense of pride and achievement. There is also a great opportunity to make dance friends in our programme of classes listed below.

Ballet Baby Stars

(18 months to 3 years) with parent/guardian)

Building on the movement and songs taught in the Tots class, “Ballet Baby Stars” develop their physical and communication skills in this fun-filled, lively environment. Parents are still very much involved as the children learn to move in time to the music whilst stimulating their imaginations and learning to count through song.

Our classes are a great way for parents, carers and guardians to meet up and make new friends too!
