What do you have your 3-4 year old wear to ballet class?

Question by Bandanna: What do you have your 3-4 year old wear to ballet class?
I just enrolled my two girls into ballet class. Dance is something very new to me and I was wondering what I should buy for them to wear?

Answer by Howard75
Buy them com-fee outfits. Such as yoga pants and t-shirts. Nothing like jeans that could restrain flexibility. No skirts unless some sort of pants are beneath them. Cam is tanks and t-shirts work best because they are light airy and easy to move in. Ballet shows are really what you need for shows because flips flops could just fly off you feet and tennis shoes make it annoying to tip toe on and lift legs. A pony tail could do the trick of keeping hair out of the way while leasing or twirling. 🙂 Read the rest of this entry »

What should i do to prepare myself for Ballet classes this fall?

Question by ♥ Cute T ♥: What should i do to prepare myself for Ballet classes this fall?
I’ve done Tap for a long, but they mostly worked on ankle exercises. I am pretty stretchy. I’m going to start stretching at least once a day and work on the 5 positions. I can put my weight on my fingertips on the floor while keeping my back and legs straight (inflexibility runs in the family.. except for my dad, lol) and I’ve been reading about doing the splits, but is there anything else I should know?
How do i get my positions perfect? I want my positions to be more than “decent” by the time class starts up on Sept. 18th. I kinda have a “you gotta clean your house before the maid gets here” attitude, but I want to be as good as i can and excel quickly! I know the teachers will help with with all that, but I can only take classes once a week and I REALLY want to get far in this before too long.
Also.. what do you wear to Ballet classes? What kind of pointers did you teacher give you about.. anything when you first started taking Ballet/Pointe?
I am 15 years old. and have NEVER taken Ballet or anything similar to it before, lol.
All help will be MUCH appreciated! 😀
I’m really kind of desperate here, lol. I’m hungry for all knowledge on this! 🙂

Where can I find music without lyrics?

Question by sylvie: Where can I find music without lyrics?
My final project for modern dance class is to choreograph a dance using music without any lyrics. It can be new age, jazz, intrumental, classical, etc. As long as it’s not popular, top 40-type songs. It’s due this Thursday and I still haven’t even chosen a song, please help!

Question by sunshinebaby: Where can I buy a cheap ballet barre?
I need a good, 4 ft. ballet barre for the cheapest price [keep in mind the shipping costs]. Perferably a free standing, i don’t want a wall-mounted. Do you have any good websites for buying this?
