Offering day-time classes to home educated Children



The 'Movement and Musicality through Dance' programme has been specifically developed to teach children the art of ballet through creative learning pathways. 


Penelope's has been successfully teaching children to dance for over 37 years. To date, we have operated a timetable that falls in line with academic school days/times. Last year, we had the pleasure of meeting a lovely family who contacted us, asking for classes held during the day as their children are home educated.


It is our mission to deliver dance to children, both mainstream school and home educated pupils,

so, are determined to create a timetable to accommodate both.

Penelope's is a fully certified Arts Award and Melody Movement Centre. We have been recognised and approved to

deliver classes that educate children thus, gaining recognition for their achievements


    When your child has had their complimentary trial, you will be asked to commit to the remaining of the half-term.

    Payment for the following half term should be made in advance via internet transfer. We expect children to attend regularly on a weekly basis. If for whatever reason, you are unable to make a class,

    an email of absence should be made to



    We teach through Ballet-based creative learning. These home education classes are essential for providing social interaction with other children. We focus on using partner work whilst gaining trust and patience. These classes provide physical exercise in a fun way through play whilst developing social skills.

    We use bubbles, silks, feathers and shells (to name a few!) to aid the children in their learning. We believe that by using props, we engage with the children on a kinaesthetic level.


    The studio is a purpose build dance facility located in Solihull, Birmingham. The fully sprung floors, mirrors, ballet barres and soft-play learning aids makes it the perfect place to learn to dance in a safe and caring environment. 


     Parents are welcome to stay at the premises in our waiting room. A television screen will be linked to the studio, providing a live-stream for you to watch your child in class. All staff are DBS checked and full-chaperones with the child's welfare being our main priority.

    If driving to us, we have our own parking facilities. If travelling by train, we are an 8-minute journey from Birmingham Grand Central. If by bus, we have a stop right outside our door!


    To register your interest in the class, and to learn about available class days & times and prices, you will be required to submit an application form (located below).


    You will be contacted with a day/time slot for your child to attend their complimentary trial.

    If the class suitable for your child is currently full, you will be held on a waiting list and contacted as soon as a place becomes available.
