Put On A Nice Ballet Leotard For Training In The Royal Ballet School
Some people dream of becoming famous ballet dancers since their early childhood. A young boy or a little girl wearing a snug ballet leotard and a pair of pointe shoes on their training workouts may dream of being accepted in the Royal Ballet School of London. This school has a solid reputation among ballet dancers and is considered to be one of the best in the world.
The history of the Royal Ballet School goes back to 1926 when Dame Ninette de Valois founded the Academy of Choreographic Art. She had a dream of founding her own ballet company and a ballet school. She collaborated with Lilian Baylis who was a manager of Old Vic theatre to reach her goal. Later they acquired the Sadler’s Wells theatre and named their company The Sadler’s Wells Ballet. In 1946 the company moved to the Royal Opera House where it still operates today. Today there are only highly qualified and experienced choreographers who train and educate students for The Royal Ballet, Birmingham Royal Ballet and other world famous ballet companies. Almost every aspired ballet dancer in a comfortable ballet leotard may have a goal of performing for those top international companies.

Like having to shop for school supplies, you’ll probably need to evaluate your child’s current arsenal of dancewear and shoes. Although you may have purchased dancewear in the spring, chances are your child grew over the summer, which means you may be in the market for something new.
