“Even before my daughter Bunnie was born, I could not wait for her to start ballet classes! From the moment Bunnie started at babyballet, both she and I have been thrilled to be part of this magical experience. Her teacher is so attentive, tailoring each class to the level and ability of each child. The 30 minutes we spend together in babyballet is a precious and memorable time.”
