2018 kicks off …

Yesterday we re-opened our little shop and started to work on any orders that are pending.  Our suppliers have been busy over the Christmas period and this has, to some extent, delayed some of the items that were due to reach us before the end of the year.  However, we remain committed to being fully in stock as soon as we  can, in order to serve you as best we can. Meanwhile, we have some new items that are in stock Read More...

Make a child’s wish come true !

And it is the weekend before Christmas ! This weekend, everyone will be bustling, shopping, dining and partying… So meanwhile, think of those who have dreams to fulfil but not the potential to do so!

Gift vouchers from The Ballet Shop

We’ve received a number of requests regarding gift vouchers. At present, you contact us, indicate the amount and we send you an invoice.  This gives you a wider choice and we sent that voucher by mail.  Unfortunately we have not yet found a way to allow this site to send you electronic vouchers so this will have to be for use in Malta only. For buyers outside Malta, we have the option that you “make an order” but allow the recipient Read More...

Proper elastics and ribbons on your ballet shoes

We all know what a chore it can be to sew on your elastics and ballet shoe ribbons. Some brands come with ready-sewn elastics, while in some cases, even if they do, the ballet school in question requires that you sew on ribbons rather than elastics. There is a lot about this that matters. First of all, there used to be a belief that if you have elastics rather than ribbons, this could restrain the circulation around the ankle. Read More...

Opening Times to start the Scholastic Term

We all know how busy it gets with the beginning of the new scholastic term.  Not only do mums and dads have to buy the new stuff for school, or students get their gear together, for school, college or university, but one has to plan  the purchase of new things that may be required for the new scholastic dance term. This year you can opt to beat the queues by ordering online and simply collecting, especially if you are sure Read More...

Preparing for the new scholastic year

August is drawing to a close and we are now preparing for the scholastic year 2017/2018.  This is usually a very exciting time for us, and we start to talk to the schools again, to see if we can cater for their, and their students’. needs. This year we introduce the practice tutu, which is not just the tutu itself but comes complete with leotard.  It is a very economical option indeed.  We will generally have these on order, so Read More...

Tutus – a new Category!

We have introduced tutus to our categories. These are practice tutus, for now, but we can also order other tutus. The tutus on show are affordable and can also be decorated for minor performances, where a full professional tutu is not required. They are also useful for more advanced examinations, auditions and similar events. Most of them are on order as we have little space for stock, but we promise to deliver as soon as we can. We can Read More...

Some new dance discounts

Well, most of you have got the bulk of your dancewear by now, unless, like myself, you have been too busy to tend to your personal things. We have some of the Dynamo sneakers coming in (not a great many, mind, but we are happy to take orders and replenish supply!
