What to wear to ballet class?

Question by Antonina: What to wear to ballet class?
I am taking summer ballet class and I don’t know what to wear. Our studio is not very strict on dress code for classes (like you don’t have to wear a leotard or skirt everyday), just no jeans. I don’t know if I should wear shorts half the time or skirts. And what tops to wear, like regular shirts or a leotard or a tank top. I have been taking ballet for 5 years, but everybody does their own thing. Please tell me something simple to wear.
Thanks is advanced!

What kind of dance shoes should I get?

Question by Chu Chii: What kind of dance shoes should I get?
Im taking a dance class in my new high school, and the class description online says we will be introduced to ballet, jazz, hip hop, belly dancing, and yoga. Im 15 yrs old. I was thinking ballet shoes? Just your basic canvas or something. I’m a beginner. Also whats better ballet shoe leather or canvas? More comfortable easy to dance in etc. And one more thing how are the Sansha shoe brand? Canvas and leather versions.
Thanks =)

Answer by beautiful wreck
Sansha is a very well respected and known ballet shoe brand so if you’ve heard of it and are leaning towards buying a pair then that sounds like a good plan.
