Just Ballet

Photograph by Linda Blacker

I have come across the perfect online shop for all things ballet. Just ballet is a family run company with over 25 years of ballet dancing experience. Who better qualified to bring us the best ballet items, than actual ballet dancers!
What I love about this shop is that not only does it specifically sell items for ballet dancers, each item has been beautifully handpicked.
What strikes me about this shop is that it has a certain class that some other dance shops don't possess.

Take a look at my favourite items from the shop:

Degas skirted Meryl leotard
Just Ballet Skirted Leotard

Degas camisole Meryl leotard

Intermezzo lace back ballet leotard

Just Ballet Tiered Skirt and Professional blue sequinned tutu

Ivory Dress

Those Degas leotards are absolutely stunning! For more beautiful ballet items, take a look at their gorgeous website here or check out their facebook page here 

Happy Wednesday, and keep dancing!

Spring Celebration Ballet Lottie Doll Review

On Friday at Tippy Toes Ballet class in Hitchin, we had some fun with Spring Celebration Ballet Lottie Doll in our 6-7 year old class. She is made by Arklu and the girls absolutely loved her! I promised them that they could take her home for a week at a time to play with her, and they promised that they wouldn't lose her ballet shoes since they can be taken off. But they said it was lucky that she came with a shoe bag to keep them in!                            

Ciara loved her tutu and the flowers on it.

Lowri wanted to hold her forever and Kira couldn't wait to take her home for a week.

Leah loved her soft hair, and they all loved how her arms and legs could be put into ballet positions so she could be made to dance the same steps that they do in our class. 
They also commented on how pretty she was, and personally this really stands out to me with these Lottie dolls.  Arklu's misson has been to create a doll body that is properly 'childlike' with no make-up, jewellery or high heels. 

My little ballerina's could really relate to Lottie, therefore it was love at first sight! At Tippy Toes Ballet we encourage our students to be themselves and love who they are, so Lottie's Motto which is "Be Bold, be brave, be you" is entirely appropriate.

Take a look at Arklu's website for more information on Spring Celebration Ballet Lottie Doll.

Ballet Party Inspiration

Whilst having a little nosy around pinterest , I came across a few images of amazing ballet birthday parties. What a great idea for any little ballerina in the making and her friends to celebrate in style! I thought I would share some of my favourite images with you to give you some lovely ideas!

A Nutcracker theme is not only great for a birthday party but would make a wonderful christmas party also.

Tutu's hung on the wall make dream like decorations.

design dazzle
Make a pretty photo booth by adding ribbon or chiffon to a beautiful frame.

Surely every little girl should get to wear a tutu at least once!

Below I have added a few items to help you create your very own ballet party.

Various party supplies from Prettypartea 

Cupcake wrappers and toppers from throwtheparty (£11.40)

Printable Ballet party kit from postreadiccion (11.40)

Ballet birthday banner from littlecelebrations (£9.50)

Ballet party collection from The Green Grass Grows (approx £66)

Ballet party dress from Tutu Couture (£32)

At Tippy Toes Ballet we offer custom ballet parties for your little ballet dancer and their friends. Take a look at our website for more information.

There was one item that I really wanted to find, but couldn't seem to find online. It's a cake shop in the UK that sells ballet cupcakes. If you can recommend anywhere, please leave a comment below or connect with us on facebook.
