Ballet Community

There are many interesting and useful ballet web sites--the following are a few of our favorites

  • The Dancer's Boutique: Ann Arbor's best dance shop, period. Possibly the best dance shop in east of the Mississippi. Huge selection of pointe shoes in stock
  • Empire Dance Shop: A wonderful place to shop for dance shoes, bodywear, accessories, books, CDs, and more of what you need for ballet class. (No wonder its such a good shop--the proprietors are dancers!)

  • B-Wear Dance Fashions: Check out our friend Pam Bolling's dancewear site -- we think its pretty cool stuff for ballet class -- and look for the links to her other sites, Peak Performance (a video series for dance instructors) and Hardrive Productions.
