Our StoryFounder - Ballet Franchise

Emma Morgan BA Hons, PGCE, RAD

tiny toes ballet franchise was established in 2010 by our founder, Emma Morgan. Emma is a trained ballet dancer, Royal Academy of Dance teacher, and an experienced primary school teacher. She is a mum of three boys.

Since 2010, Emma has combined her extensive knowledge of how children learn, alongside her dance expertise. Emma has created an award winning post-natal and preschool dance and ballet syllabus. It is designed to captivate, delight, inspire, motivate, and challenge, whilst developing important language, social, and gross motor skills. This is all done through the creative and fun practice of teaching dance to children in an imaginative and explorative enviroment.

Emma Morgan - Tiny Toes Ballet Franchise Founder

“I can pinpoint the moment tiny toes ballet was born. My son, 5 months old, began dancing in his high chair to music that had just come on in the background. It was a demonstration of something I’ve long believed – that in all of us there is a natural desire to express ourselves through movement.

Through my personal experience as a trained classical ballet dancer and teacher of the Royal Academy of Dance, I have been lucky enough to witness the extraordinary lengths to which this natural response can be explored. But I’ve also seen how the strict training regimes inherent in traditional ballet training can stifle a child’s creativity.

During my many years working as a primary school teacher, I also saw parallels with the way modern curriculums leave little room for creative expression and play.

Benefits of early learning

When I founded tiny toes ballet, I was determined to find a way to combine the enormous benefits ballet brings with the fact that children learn best when they are given space to explore their imaginations. I wanted to find a way to harness that natural desire to dance that I saw in my son, but in a way that fostered confidence, learning, and above all, joy.”
