Ballet coloring sheets created especially for those young passionate artists and ballet dancers who aspire to be the next Prima Donna! Now what would an aspiring ballet dancer want with coloring in sheets? Well, what about getting the feel for all things that are ballet?Did you know Nureyev use to go through all his dance sequences in his mind before he put on his dancing shoes? He practiced every step, every movement before going onto the stage—in his mind! His mind was of course the world stage.
So with these ballet coloring sheets, we will start off with the basic ballet poses with footgear which has to have maybe a steel toecap for excellent support. With these caps you can do those twirls without too much pressure on your large toes and your fellow ballet dancers will look on with awe showing your sustained twirls.
Sneaker-shaped ballet shoes are out of course, unless you want to practice without an audience. Leading ladies would NEVER wear ballet sneakers in practice, it would ruin their reputation and possibly their feet.
Painful toes after strenuous practice can give you a feeling of inadequacy so the best advice is to wear steel capped sneakers camouflaged with silk binding. No one will notice and you will feel great after hours of practice when all your peers will be having soothing foot-baths.
The first images will be outlines of these sneakers which will be disguised as the real McCoy. You and I will know better. As a sidebar to this, my daughter announced she wanted a new pair of shoes (she had a new pair about a week before) which cost about the same as a two-month vacation in Malibu. These sneaker-ballet-shoes had air pockets inside giving additional Achilles support during Pointe exercises. My daughter could certainly master the Pointe par excellence almost like an ice skater.
Capezio and Danshuz make wonderful ballet slippers that are comfortable, don't cause blisters, support all the right places and can be used as household slippers and, more importantly, they are fashionable. Anna Pavlova wears Capezio shoes and she is high fashion.
Now once these shoes are mastered in these ballet coloring sheets, we'll go and take a peek at the costumes. If you want to look really sharp and 'cool' you have to have the right color. Of course there is no such thing as the 'right' color—it is a question of "Will my peers think this is cool?" The dress code during practice bouts can be uncool if you wear sloppy fitting leotards, they must fit your body well and not like a parachutist in full flight.
Haute couture or, if you like to be down to earth, high fashion, is alive and well in the ballet world. The trend as I see it is not quite the same in the outside world where young folk like to purchase used, beat-up, ripped, torn, stinky stuff worn by drop-outs in lower Manhattan.
Okay, so color these wonderful leotards using blended colors, not strident or colors that are opposite in the color spectrum like red and green. Let's not go the same route as the Lower Manhattan haute couture crowd. You can be cool in anything on the dance floor and be seen "cool" by your coach and peers in this wonderful ballet world.
