Let's Talk About Ballet Shoes

Here at Showtime we cater for a range of different skill levels with our ballet shoes.

This blog will take you through some of the options we have for your children!

Find our video explanation here on our YouTube channel!

Bloch Dansoft

The Bloch Dansoft is one of our most popular styles and is a perfect beginner shoe for toddlers and junior students.

An ideal student ballet shoe with a full sole and pre-sewn elastic over the instep for immediate use.

It has a strong yet flexible leather upper and cotton lining.

Energetiks Full Sole Ballet Shoe

Another amazing beginner shoe, the Energetiks Full Sole Ballet Shoe is designed to build strength and offer the support young dancers need. 

Why you'll love it: 

Supple, durable leather for long-lasting wear, pre-attached elastic over instep, enhanced aesthetic line and elastic drawstring for a supportive fit, perfect for ballet class to build technique, available in Pink, Black or White, all sizes are available in 4 widths, from narrowest to widest: A, B, C, D and proudly designed in Australia.

Bloch Prolite II

The Bloch Prolite II is our next step up, perfect for intermediate or senior students.

This split sole ballet shoe with tapered toe uses a premium 'AAA' grade leather upper offering abrasive resistance, whilst a thin cotton drawstring adjusts the upper to the foot.

An original T split-sole design with teardrop shaped outsole pads gives better foot articulation and movement.

A cotton lining offers breathability and the soft thin suede sock adds additional comfort.

Capezio Hanami

For performance you should look no further than the Capezio Hanami or Juliet.

Our best-selling Hanami Ballet Shoes are unlike any ballet slippers you have ever worn. This split-sole shoe is made of high quality canvas material that stretches and really clings to your foot for a true second skin fit. The incredible, buttery soft lining provides comfort beyond your expectations. No drawstrings erase any worry of the ballet shoe coming undone. Slip it on and glide freely across the dance floor.

Capezio Juliet 

Arabesque like the pros in the Leather Juliet Ballet Shoe. The unique sculpted arch improves pointing and flexing with ease. Features durable leather and pre-attached criss-cross elastics for a secure fit. This ballet slipper is a first rate choice for dancers with narrow feet. Snug yet flexible for extra control on stage.

When preparing to move into Pointe Shoes, the perfect transition shoe is your Demi Pointe. Available in a soft or hard sole, they are the perfect middle ground to begin training your feet for pointe work.

Demi Pointe Shoes

The Demi-pointe is a transitional shoe from the ballet flat to the pointe shoe. The Demi-pointe is designed to provide the correct amount of resistance for foot and ankle strengthening on preparation for pointe work. The S0135 Demi pointe has a leather outsole and is made on the same last as the Sylphide pointe shoe. The generous internal space of the box area allows the foot to be inserted deep into the shoe. The resistance of the leather sole ensures that maximum strength is gained from working in the S0135 Demi-pointe.

Ribbons sold separately.

The Soft Sole Demi has a soft suede sole and is made on the same last as the Suprima pointe shoe. This Demi-pointe has a streamlined shape and fits snugly at the heel because of the tapered and narrow last. The suede sole has a narrow waist and closely mimics the natural contours of the foot staying in close contact with the instep. This shoe has low cut sides and accentuates the profile of the foot.

Ribbons sold separately.

Pointe Shoes

Finally we have Pointe Shoes. Here at Showtime we stock Bloch, Energetiks, and Grishko Pointe Shoes. Each come in a range of styles and strengths to cater for each level of dancer we have here on the Sunshine Coast.

Finding the perfect pointe shoe can be a complicated process, but thanks to the range of options now available it has become easier to find the 'one'.

We recommend being professionally fitted before purchasing any pointe shoes.  Only order if you are certain of your exact style, size and width of shoe.
