Starting Ballet


Ballet lessons bring many positive benefits. They help to foster confidence, poise, grace, musicality and self-discipline. An early introduction to ballet through a pre-school class such as those offered by the Baby Ballet Franchises is the perfect fun introduction to ballet and dance. Everything needed for ballet from top to toe can be supplied by Tappers & Pointers from ballet shoes to headbands and everything in between.

  • Ballet Shoes

    Ballet shoes for young starters may be in leather or satin. The leather tends to grow with the feet whereas the satins are slightly less espensive. Both sorts come in a variety of colours and a wide range of sizes.
