Where can I buy cheap(er than usual) ballet leotards and pointe shoes in Singapore?
Pointe shoes are taken extremely seriously in the ballet world. Girls are only allowed to get them with many years of training and teacher permission. This is because they are VERY dangerous and take a LOT of strength, balance, technique, and knowledge of ballet to dance in. Even girls that have had enough training have gotten serious injuries in pointe shoes because they lost concentration on their placement for a few seconds. Please do NOT buy pointe shoes! For one, you don’t know any steps or exercises to do in them in the first place, so what’s the point? You also don’t know how to sew the ribbons and elastics on (which you need or the shoe will slip off your foot), and you don’t know how to break them in or take care of them. They hurt a LOT and are very hard to dance in. Not to mention they’re about $70 a pair! Ballet slippers are what beginners use, and you are still a beginner even if you took a few classes in the past. You can get them and some leotards from a dance supply sto
