    London Children’s Ballet: Ballet Shoes

    Sounds to me that’s a place in the main company - for the main production. That’s what DD’s letter said last year ...

    Sewing elastic to pointe shoes

    She did do the first ribbons on her pair - as I said they were a little wonky - it was like Frankenstein’s ballet shoes 😆 Good tip about the breaking in though, fingers crossed that’s all this pair needs too ...

    Yes she’s at Hammond, popping to see her this weekend so will take elastic with me! Luckily we live in London so not too much of a mission for another fitting.

    Thanks Sarah, I might well take a trip to CG in the hols if the elastic doesn’t work. She does have little, narrow fairy feet!

    Sewing elastic to pointe shoes

    They’re her first pair of pointe shoes as she’s only 11, she actually sewed the first set of ribbons on as she got them fitted at school - bless her they were a bit wonky!

    Sewing elastic to pointe shoes

    DD’s pointe shoes are slipping off her heels despite me moving the ribbons several times, so her teacher has advised she has elastic sewn on to them. I’ve seen two methods: one piece in a loop around the foot or two pieces going from back to front that cross over - which is best? Any advice appreciated ...
  11. Looking for portable practise flooring. One or two metres square that can be used on top of carpet. Just seeing if anyone has before I buy new!

    DD got to finals in 2016 and 2017. She didn’t get a place the first year but I think it spurred her on even more and she got in last year. Everyone who gets to finals is good enough, but a lot of the final decisions are based on what type of dancers and personalities they need for the parts. I bet they’d love to cast everyone!

    We got DD’s acceptance letter last year on the Friday following the final audition. It came by post. The previous year we got an email - so it could be either ...
