Ballet slippers and dancewear should do more than just make you look great. Each item must also enhance your technique and performance, so if you think slippers are just shoes, think again.
Depending on the class level, you may need ballet shoes that support the toes and balls of your feet. Beginners need only slippers with a tiny bit of traction on the soles. Glide across the stage in slippers that make you feel weightless.
