Your first day of Fairy Ballet will be a memorable one regardless, so lets make sure it is memorable for the RIGHT reasons. We are so excited to meet any new little smiling faces joining in for their first time during the term, and it is as much a thrill for us teachers to be there for your special day as it is for you!
Below we have compiled a few quick tips to keep in mind to ensure your very first day at Fairy Ballet is a smooth and enjoyable one.
- Arrive Early
I know – easier said than done, and sometimes it is so hard to get out of the door on time with your little dancer and often additional children or pets to organise as well. BUT if it is possible, allowing your dancer those few extra minutes before classes start to meet her new teachers, see the new room, and settle in before the class commences will help so much. We don’t want you to be stressed out trying to find our address or rushing out of the car as kid do pick up on our stress. A nice relaxed arrival will result in a relaxed (but excited!) dancer.
- Make The Fairy Shop
If possible, come into the shope to have a look leading up to your ballerina’s first day. Even just drive past and wave, draw a picture of it or talk about it positively with friends during the week leading up to the first lesson. Make it an exciting and familiar place that your dancer will be comfortable to visit.
- Dress the Part!
One of the best part about ballet is the gorgeous little outfits we get to wear. Any excuse to get dressed up right? We allow ‘free dress’ for our Fairy Ballet classes meaning the sky is the limit to what outfit your little dancer would like to wear. Princess costumes, Elsa dresses or beautiful Fairy Skirts with a matching crown is all acceptable and encouraged. If your daughter feels like a ballerina when she walks in the door then I am sure she will dance like one too!
- Trust your Teachers
Being a Fairy Ballet teacher is actually THE BEST job in the world, so we only employ the most experienced, fun and loving teachers to teach our classes at The Fairy Shop. These girls will care and nurture our little ones in a safe environment, so trust them when they give suggestions or advice on how to settle your dancer in. Our classrooms are just for our Ballet Teachers and Fairy Ballerinas, and Mummies & Daddies or Carers must wait in our waiting room and watch on the screen.
- Keep Calm & Enjoy the Moment!
What a special moment…her first ballet class! Enjoy it and treasure it forever. This could be the start of an absolutely magical dance journey for your family, and we are so excited to be apart of it.
