BALLET

Clothing

When you do Ballet lessons you wear a leotard, stockings or socks ballet shoes and if it is cold you might were leg warders and a cross over.


For performances you might were a tutu but if you are a boy you probably would wear stockings with a leotard or shirt.


If you are a girl you can go on point when your dance teacher tells you that your toes are ready.
