A.R. asks from Keller, TX on September 11, 2007
I've just started my almost 4 year old in ballet.
I know you can get ballet slippers at Payless, but we tried them when she was two and they didn't fit her well. I would rather spend a little more on good fitting shoes this time around.
Can someone recommend a place to buy ballet slippers where they will help fit them so we can get a good fit?

Thanks for the recommendations everyone! We ended up getting them at Dana's in Southlake.

My daughter is 3 and we just got her some at Dallas Dancewear at Grapvine Mills Mall. They were $15 and they helped fit her correctly.

Dallas Dancewear in the Grapevine Mills Mall. They have name brand and the ladies there will fit them for your daughter. Thats where I went to get my 4 year old's shoes. Plus they are just as cheap as payless. I paid 14.99$. Great place, some what near the j c penny entrance.

Dana's Studio of Dance in Southlake sells children's ballet shoes and there is also a dance store in Grapevine Mills mall I believe. The key to a good fitting ballet slipper is for them to be real leather with real adjustable strings... in the correct size of course. I teach dance at a studio in Keller and at the rec center in Roanoke so let me know if you have any more questions!

2 places- there's a good dance store in the same shopping center as Toys R Us (across I35E from Vista Ridge Mall) in Lewisville, and another one in grapevine mills mall, just down from the rainforest cafe. Good luck!

There is a place in Lewisville across the Highway from the mall (in the shopping center with Toys R Us) called Spotlight. They do an excellent job of fitting the shoes and several different brands to try for the different size/shape foot. They are not that expensive either, approximately $16. Good Luck!
