Conal Posted March 14, 2006 Report Share Posted March 14, 2006 Hello. I'm a 15-year-old boy who's just decided, after being reassured on another forum that he isn't too old, that he will take ballet lessons. It all came about after I played in the orchestra for a production of 'Sylvia' by Delibes and saw some other boys dancing - I decided that it looked like great fun, and I've always liked ballet. I think I may have found myself a school, but I'm simply clueless when it comes to clothing etc. Thankfully, a search on wikipedia saved me from the embarassment of asking exactly what a dance belt was, but I still have a few other questions. Shoes: Do I need ones with a full sole, or a 'top spin' whatever that may be? Does anyone have any advice on a particular sort to get, or which colour/type is most appropriate? General clothing: What sort of thing should I wear to my first lessons? I've established from other topics that tights will be required and I should wear black, unless I want to make a fool of myself. If anyone could give me some sort of comprehensive list, it'd be greatly appreciated. Lastly, if anyone has any advice for a beginner, it would be most welcome. I'm still worried that I'm too old to be starting, though I've always been flexible and have danced before. What sort of things will be expected of me in my first few lessons? Quote Link to comment
