Boys shoes: Soft white leather ballet shoes full suede soles (split soles not permitted). Sew on the elastic from the bit between the heal and the middle of the foot holding the heal up.

    Hair must be off the neck and securely pinned in a ballet bun, so the neck line can be seen. When practised weekly it should take less than a minute to do. No need of chemical hair spray for class. Natural spray and/or hairpins to flatten the curly bits at the neck and at the front. Beaded hair must be secured.

    Adults and Children

    Shoes must be purchased by a professional retailer – Freed, Bloch, Sansha etc.

    Very important shoe information: An elastic strap must be sewed on to the side of the heal on both sides in order for the shoe to stay on securely. The elastic goes across the top part of the ankle and secured on both sides towards the back of the shoe. It is not enough to tie the elastic at the front of the shoe and if tied to hard it will stop blood circulation and will feel uncomfortable.
