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.

that class is in Britain, and I would not class Prince George as one who has precious little time spent on him

he is now 9 months old and only just starting to stand

I had three children, and now five great grand children so think I do know what I am talking about

just found this about a "miracle" who stood at six months

Child development (the usual route)

4-12weeks: Baby will try to lift his head while lying on his front

3-5months: Will reach out for objects

5-6months: Can hold objects and move them between his hands

6-8months: Baby can sit without assistance

6-9months: Baby begins to crawl and pull himself upright

10-18months: Takes first steps on his own
