hi,

Kindly advise which ballet school is good (somewhere central) as I'm thinking of sending my 3 year old daughter for ballet. Thanks.

Regards,
Valerie

Thanks. Got any ballet centre near central?

Did your gals become more graceful after learning ballet? I know ballet can help them with better posture.

For our 3 yr old who has attended several sessions, we observed that she likes to bend her legs backwards when she is walking 1/2 way after she started ballet. Is that normal when they first started?

I'm not sure what you mean cos I tried to visualise what you described and I observed my DD walking from behind but I don't think it's weird. She's 7 now and has been taking ballet since she was 3. She does sway her hips naturally when she walks and it's more apparent when she wears short flare skirts.

Back when I was in sec sch, my sch's award-winning CCA was Chinese dance so I always noticed that my schoolmates who were in this CCA would walk a bit different. But I don't think it's the legs, more like how they place their feet, kinda like 1st position feet in ballet.

Even now, if I see a woman wearing flat-soled shoes and walking in this style, I would deduce that she took/is taking ballet lessons. Usually, I'm right. :D

How much are the ballet dresses and shoes? Do they need to go exam every year? How's the ideal age for them to start ballet?

Vfong1,

$80++ for the attire. Whether to go for the exam will depend on the teacher. She will determine if ur ger is ready for exam.
