Looking for a complementary class? Coach Jasmine recommends Strength & Flexibility to aid with core stability and leg movement. Looking for shoes? Below are links to pre-made shoes, however with the right tools, you can fashion your own in a few hours.
A word from the coach, “I get my leather from the scrap bins at MacPherson’s and leather-upper soft ballet slippers at Discount Dance. I use a leather needle, upholstery thread, and Elmer’s glue to hold everything together. Canvas slippers are an acceptable, easy, and cheap way to get started.”
