I am Ruth Stocks, a children’s dance specialist and a classical ballerina. I was trained in the Cecchetti method and have completed all Cecchetti exams achieving Honours (winner of the Cecchetti Senior Medal).

My recent teaching experience outside of Ballet Babies includes Choreographer and Dance Tutor at North Turramurra Primary School and at Mt Colah Primary School.

In 2011, I commenced Ballet Babies, I have half an hour classes for 2-5 year olds on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday. On Saturday mornings, I also run a class for 2-4 year olds as well as 5-6 year olds. Ballet Babies dance classes introduce the wonderful and delightful world of music, drama, rhythmic movement and dance to many first time dancers.

Ballet Babies has 2 studios – East Wahroonga Scout Hall and Turramurra Uniting Church Hall. These are children’s sanctuaries where fun and imagination in class develops poise and confidence to support very important learning processes.

Miss Ruthie is one of the most passionate professional dance educators I have come across.I have taught education... degrees for decades at both USYD & UNSW including dance teaching majors and can attest that teaching and engaging small children is a specialized skill that not everyone can master. Miss Ruthie however is a talented ballerina and a natural expert early child dance educator. Miss Ruthie’s classes are exceptionally well planned and layered with a constant stream of super engaging, varied, stylist worthy beautiful resources that little ballerinas love. Through their enjoyment littles are intrinsically supported in learning age-appropriate formal ballet.Miss Ruthie’s style is very kind, gentle and direct in teaching actual ballet instead of dumbed down phaff that I have seen some of the other local “prestigious” dance schools teach. Before discovering Ballet Babies, we tried a few other renowned dance schools, only to be appalled by their utter lack of substance and no ability to engage.It’s a joy to watch small children with a predisposition to limited attention be thoroughly enthralled with Miss Ruthie’s classes. And yes Ballet Babies classes are openly parent friendly with no hostile ‘drop and go’ policies that other schools employ, so you can watch your child develop without it being a mystery.If this is your first time taking your tot to a dance class you may not even realise just how amazing Miss Ruthie is if you’ve not had anything to compare it to.Ballet Babies offers a personal passionate approach and delivers excellence in early dance education.read more
