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.

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.

Tutus – a new Category!

We have introduced tutus to our categories. These are practice tutus, for now, but we can also order other tutus.

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...

A New Category! Jewellery!

Look up our new category – Jewellery – for a delightful new section of this shop. You may wish to wear some of our creations to class (if you are allowed – best you ask as jewellery is not normally worn in dance classes) or to an after-party!
