Finding Adult Friendship Through Ballet

When I reflect back on my early days as a first-time mum, I can’t help but remember the feeling of isolation. It was through my love of ballet that my adult friendships blossomed. My ballet business has led me to some life-long friends, none of whom I would have met if it wasn’t through our mutual love for the beauty of ballet.

An interview with Tiny Toes Ballet mum, Sara Keli

Sara isn’t a dance mum… and that’s what drew her to Tiny Toes Ballet. She loved the relaxed feel, the no-fuss concert and the nurturing approach of the teachers. “When Olivia, my eldest daughter, was two she showed an interest in dancing. I had a look around at a few ballet schools and got a good vibe from Tiny Toes Ballet. Now both of my girls dance with Tiny Toes Ballet and we haven’t looked back.”
