Baby Ballet is the lowest level troupe at The Next Step, consisting mostly of ballet classes for young aspiring dancers.


Baby Ballet is a class consisting of younger students who would like to start dancing at The Next Step Dance Studio. During these classes, students learn basic ballet skills and moves, and get used to the studio environment.

In Season 1, the E-Girls hold dance camp for the Baby Ballet students, and James and Eldon are also seen teaching a Baby Ballet class.[1] Chloe becomes a full-time teacher for Baby Ballet in Season 2, and remains so until she leaves to join a ballet company in Season 3.

After being taken off of TNS West for his lack of basic technique, Kingston enrolls in Baby Ballet classes, which are now taught by Noah.[2] Heather begins teaching Baby Ballet classes around this time.[3] Kingston graduates from Baby Ballet after about two months.[4]






Presumably at the same time that A-Troupe gains its uniform (or possibly some time after as this particular one is not seen until Season 3[7]), Baby Ballet is given a similar one albeit with just the jacket. Like the A-Troupe jacket, it has The Next Step's logo on the front and back, and the left and right shoulders display the name 'Baby Ballet' in black. The colour of the jacket is pink. It can be assumed that the jacket, like the uniforms, was designed by Zoltan and Minnow.

  1. Given that Riley is younger than Emily and also inferably younger than Eldon and James, it is likely that Riley is a former member of Baby Ballet seeing as she met James for the first time when Eldon was seven and James was six, meaning that she must have been younger than six and already a member of The Next Step.
