    Oh wow! Can I ask a newbie question? What is that super cool looking thing you’re sewing on the tips?

    Please keep posting pictures of your pointe shoes! I really love seeing them. (: Especially when you’re darning them… *is so jealous*

    I’m new to your blog, and I’ve stalked quite a few “adult beginner ballet” ones before, but yours is, in my opinion, the wittiest and the most inspirational. Much love! ♥

    • Well, thanks, Ms. Flirt! Or can I call you Page?

        Page is just fine with me! (:

        I don’t know if this would sound impertinent or would be something you’re willing to answer (so please feel free to decline!), but I’ve been sort of… shopping around for adult ballet classes price-wise (darn you, student budget!), and I am just wondering if you pay for an entire month, as you come per day, per week… maybe even a year? I’m going back and forth between whether a higher price for a set of classes might mean “better quality,” though I know that is probably not the case.

        • I pay per class. Some of the other girls in class write a check for a week or month, but there’s no discount. I’ve just found it easier to slap down a $20 each class. Please don’t add that up and tell me how much I’ve spent in the past year and a half, I don’t want to know!
          And that said, ballet class prices seem to range from $15-$20, I’d say find a class you like and then pay whatever it is, it won’t be drastically more or less than the class two blocks down, and hey, you’re spending money on your fitness, mental and physical, you’ll be a healthy old person, right?
