The Ballet Brigade offers beautiful, live, fun, creative ballet classes for kids.
Our programme provides children with the opportunity to learn ballet no matter where they are in the world.
The main aim of our Ballet Brigade classes is to encourage children to learn basic ballet technique, follow instruction, and foster their imagination while learning in your own comfortable environment.
About our team
Hi there! We are Nicola & Emma and we have been best friends for over 25 years!
We met one day in ballet class whilst practising our plies at the barre. We both attended the prestigious Laine Theatre Arts college where we completed our dance and dance teacher training. We went on to pirouette in west end musicals in London and around the world and work as dancers and singers for companies such as Sesame Street and Disney.
We opened our other company: Tippy Toes Ballet® in September 2011 when we felt it was time to pass on all that we had learnt and loved when we were younger. The joy that we get from dance is always there, and to help children find that joy is priceless.
Tippy Toes Ballet ® has been bringing magical ballet to preschool children in the United Kingdom for nearly a decade and our company has brought magical ballet classes to thousands of little ballet dancers in England and in Scotland.
We are now very excited to be able to bring our ballet programme online so that we can reach little dancers everywhere! There is nothing that we enjoy more than helping young children fall in love with ballet through imagination and fun!
Miss Emma is currently on maternity leave and has just given birth to a beautiful little girl, and Miss Nicola is your online teacher.
