  1. Streets/sidewalks are very dirty.  This dirt and grime is tracked into the Ballet Center making floors and studio floors dirty and slippery.  Not conducive to dancing.
  2. Ballet slippers wear out quickly on concrete and asphalt.
  3. Studio floors are “sprung.”  Concrete is hard on little feet that only have a ballet slipper for support.

NO Ballet Slippers / warmup Booties outside school premises
