For boys you have to wear a white leotard, navy shorts, white socks and white ballet shoes no points.
How to start ballet
You start ballet in different grades depending how old are. Ballet is tiring and hard but fun at the same time. When you are in Grade 4 or 5 you go on point but if you aren’t you can’t go on point. When you first start ballet you always have to do your good toes and naughty toes to warm up.
How to go on point
When you go on point you do lots of relives which is when you go on your tiptoes. You can do lots of things on point such as an arabesque, walking. Unfortunately boys do not have to go through the painful subject as girls have to put up with it and get very sore feet. Before you go on points you have to make sure your feet are nice and strong by exercising.
