Babies will be pirouetting when a ballet class starts up in Braintree.

Run by Catherine Segal, a former professional dancer, the baby ballet Song and Dance Academy classes are open to both boys and girls aged six months to six-years-old and are designed to encourage children to enjoy the benefits of music and dance.

Mrs Segal, who began ballet herself at the age of three, has been running classes in Bishop’s Stortford and is thrilled to be bringing her classes to the area.

Classes will begin at Namco Funscape in Freeport, Braintree, from May 6.
