Beginning Ballet: A practice in self control

Beginning Ballet: A practice in self control

When you sign up for your first ballet class and find out that you’ll need some fab dancin’ shoes, that’s pretty exciting. So you hop online and type in ballet shoes to see what you’re in for. I hope they’re not too expensive, you’ll think to yourself.

And then you start looking at Bloch, Capezio, Discount Dance, etc. online and what’s this? Leotards? Leg warmers? Dance skirts? Dance tops? Dance pants? Dance shorts? Dance bras? Dance crop tops? You discover a whole world of ~trendy dance wear~ and if you’re like me, you’ll spend hours scrolling and bookmarking, telling yourself that you need these things.

Then you end up with about 25 things in your shopping cart, Ready To Buy.

And then you think, what about dance books?

Book Depository. Search Query: ballet. Add to cart. Add to cart. Add to cart.

Tip: Just stick to the basics at first.

  1. I know, right?! I went to this dance outlet store back in November and I felt like a sugar-addicted kid in a candy store; leotards, leotards and more leotards as far as the eye could see! If it wasn’t for sizing issues I would have tried to buy the whole store!
    A good pair of legwarmers and a little cover-up sweater are essentials if the weather’s cold though… and several pairs of tights…but I have yet to own a ballet skirt (or dance pants, shorts, tops, bras).
