Pique Posted July 13, 2011 Report Share Posted July 13, 2011 Hi guys--Glad I found this place! I (like a million others) took ballet as a very young child. The teacher, well known in my area for decades, was VERY serious and VERY scary (big stick that the tapped your butt and tummy with, lots of criticism and very little positive reinforcement, etc). I took from age 6-9 and then couldn't hack it anymore--she just stressed me out too much, LOL! But I never stopped loving ballet and following it. I read all the dance novels, own all the dance movies, attend performances when I can, etc. I took adult classes for a while during college and grad school. But I haven't taken any classes for more than 20 years. Having recently lost a bunch of weight, I'm inspired in my late 40s to try again! So I'm starting adult classes! I had planned to start in the Fall, but I may go to a class tomorrow--trying to find out if that's OK. I have the clothes and I'm ready to go! Anyway, just wanted to say hi. I'm sure I'll have tons of questions. My immediate query is this: My canvas split-sole shoes came w/ criss-cross elastics that are NOT sewn on at the back. I know where the front part of the elastic should go but I'm not sure exactly where I put the BACK part? Just hold them on and find a good spot? Or is there a landmark somewhere? Thanks! (These are by Bodywrappers--I wanted Blochs but the store didn't have canvas Blochs and I figured these were fine for starters--I was afraid to order online w/out knowing what size I would wear).
