How old do you have to be to go on pointe?

What is a Barrette Snood?

A barrette snood is a quick way to secure your hair in a "bun" for ballet. It is very simple to use and great for those "on the go moms & daughters"! Simply place your hair in a ponytail. Take the snood barrette clip and secure in the hair slightly above the ponytail. Secure the barrette. Take the hair from the pony tail and gently fold it into the nylon "pouch"! That's it! Instant ballet bun for dance class! Knew you could do it!

This is Why I Teach Dance

Not because I expect you to major in dance

Not because I expect you to dance all your life

Not so you can relax and have fun

But so you will be human.

So you will recognize beauty.

So you will be sensitive.

So you will be closer to an infinite world.

So you will have something to cling to.

So you will have more love, more compassion, more gentleness, more good.......

In short, more life.

Of what value will it be to make a prosperous living unless you know how to live?
