Baby Ballroom delves into the glamorous, dramatic and competitive world of ballroom dancing for children. Across two series it follows a selection of the most successful and dynamic young couples as they train at Zig Zag Dance Factory, one of the UK’s biggest dance schools, under the watchful eye of dance teachers and former ballroom champions Warren and Jane Bullock.
The series explores the lives of these young dancers, their families and teachers – who live and breathe Latin and Ballroom dance – as they train for and take part in make-or-break competitions. Every episode culminates in either a Couples or Formation competition – an event that puts the dancers’ and the schools’ reputations squarely on the line.
Packed to the brim with cute kids, strict teachers and extremely pushy parents alongside an array of amazing talent, huge personalities and glittering costumes, this is the world of Baby Ballroom.
