Ballet Classes – What Your Child Needs

The first thing you need to do when your child decides that they want to attend ballet class is find a good dance teacher and a good dance school. Once you’ve done this, you will need to find a good place to buy the dance wear that your child will need for the class. The dance teacher should provide a comprehensive list that will include items such as ballet shoes, ballet leotards and ballet tights.

First of all, let’s take a look at the ballet shoes. These are soft shoes designed specifically for the art of ballet dancing and are available in leather, canvas and satin. Leather is the hardest wearing but if you’re looking for something a little cheaper you should try canvas as they wear relatively well and are easy to maintain. Satin are very attractive to look at but stain easily and wear out quickly so it’s best to buy these specifically for auditions or performances. To begin with, your child will need a pair of full sole ballet shoes in order to help develop the muscles in their feet and ankles. They also provide extra support which will help make learning the basics of ballet dancing as easy as possible, allowing them to progress to split sole shoes when they gain more experience.
