Ballet First Steps

Open Level
3 - 6 Years

This fun yet structured ballet class will allow children to learn the basics of ballet whilst gaining knowledge of coordination and control. Children are often asked to work alone and in groups to allow confidence building to take place. All this happens in a relaxed environment to allow children to change and explore their movement, and more importantly, to have fun!

Information for parents: Children under 11 years must be accompanied at all times whilst at DanceXchange, and a parent/guardian must remain on the premises whilst they are in class.

What’s the 15 minute rule? : You won’t be allowed to join a class if you’re more than 15 minutes late. This is because you’ll have missed the warm-up, which increases your chance of injury.

What should I wear? Anything comfortable that lets you move freely. You can wear tracksuit bottoms, leggings, t-shirts, and vests to most classes. If you have tap, ballet or jazz shoes, please wear them accordingly. But they’re not essential for beginner levels.

What about accessibility? We work hard to make our classes accessible for all abilities. Please get in touch to discuss how we can best offer assistance for your needs.

How can I get in touch with DanceXchange? We’re on hand six days a week. Got a question? Then please call 0121 689 3170 or email

First Timer? If you’d like to attend one of our classes, just turn up on the day. You don’t need to book a place, or let us know you’re coming.
