A PEMBROKESHIRE dance school, Tiny Toes Ballet, is keeping a step ahead of lockdown by offering free online classes for children.
Tiny Toes Ballet, which holds children’s dance classes in Haverfordwest and Pembroke, is making the offer to help support parents and teachers who are home schooling due to lockdown.
Its eight-week course of classes combines drama, dance, cookery and more, and is aimed at children aged seven and under.
Sonia Murison, who runs the Pembrokeshire Tiny Toes Ballet franchise, says she is delighted to be able to help keep children learning through lockdown.
“Every week we provide fun and engaging dance classes, where our little ones learn through our dance programme that is fully integrated with the early years foundation stage curriculum,” she said. “We get to teach to over 130 amazing pupils here in beautiful Pembrokeshire. We love to help our little dancers learn through using rich sensory props, story time, fun activities and so much more.
“We have so much fun in just one 40-minute class and now we are bringing these fantastic classes back online through Zoom to our dancers once more.
“We love looking forward to seeing our dancers on Zoom live every week; we are not just a dance class – we have made an amazing Pembrokeshire Tiny Toes Ballet family.”
Tiny Toes Ballet was founded in Swansea in 2011 by Emma Morgan, an experienced primary school and ballet teacher, and has grown to have 14 franchises all over the UK.
Emma said: “We’ve centred the activities on themes that we know children love – Three little pigs,
Under the Sea, Down on the Farm and Superheroes, for example. The classes will run for eight weeks and we’re encouraging as many people as possible to get involved.”
