Pre-School Ballet

See our Pre-School dance page to read about our Melody Movers classes – the perfect introduction to Ballet for ages 2-4.

Reception/Year 1 Ballet with Melody Bear

These classes follow the award-winning Melody Bear First and Foundation syllabi. Children’s confidence, physicality and self-expression soar as we use unique props, dance the stories of classic fairy tales, carry out creative dance exercises and learn choreographed routines in exciting, jam-packed lessons.

Each week, children receive a sticker of a movement or theme they have worked on in class and these are collected to earn termly medals rewarding their in-class progress.

What Our Parents Think

Don’t just take our word for it!

Both of my children have been going to the academy for over a year now. My youngest son has suspected autism and I am amazed with how the academy fits him into his ballet class with so much patience and professionalism. My daughter gets excited before she goes to every lesson and aspires to be like the older dancers one day. I would definitely recommend the academy to any parent who would like their child to learn to dance in a loving, diverse, structured and professional environment.

A Melody Bear & Acro Antics Mum

Would recommend to anyone wanting to start dance lessons. My daughter has been attending for over 3 years. She has tried other places but loves the friendly teachers and different classes.

A Junior Ballet, Tap/Contemporary Modern Mum

Excellent dance school, teachers and timetables to suit all. My two girls have been attending for both ballet and tap from ages 2 and 4. They look forward to their lessons every Saturday. Wonderful supportive teachers and lots of fun!

A Melody Bear Mum

Fabulous dance class for my daughter, she enjoys it very much and Chloe is amazing with the children.

A Junior Ballet Mum

We have taken our daughter to other dance classes in the past and nothing compares to Chloe May’s. Nicole looks forward to going so much and really can’t wait to return. We would recommend to anyone.

A Melody Bear Dad

Fab teacher, well organised and very friendly to the kids, my two love going.

A Junior Acro and Tap/Contemporary Modern Dad

My daughter has attended Chloe May’s Dance Academy since it first opened and absolutely loves it. The dances are so much fun, especially with the use of little props and being able to dress up for special occasions. The Melody Bear dance charts are a great idea, a sticker every week to put on and reward badges to work towards. Chloe does an amazing job at keeping parents / guardians up to date and has continued to do so through such a difficult 12 months due to COVID. Have nothing but high praise.

A Melody Bear Mum

Friendly and welcoming. My daughter absolutely loves it here. Chloe is a brilliant teacher. I would definitely recommend.
