Demi Pointe shoes

demi pointes, soft blocks, exam shoes.

Demi pointes are the transition shoe between soft ballet shoes and pointe shoes. They are harder than ballet shoes and are designed to prepare your feet and legs for pointe work. By wearing demi pointes (or soft pointes) your feet will become accustomed to working in a more confined space, on an uneven sole and against a stronger sole. You will start to develop the muscles needed for pointe work and learn about stability and balance in a different type of shoe. We highly recommend soft pointes to our younger customers who are aspiring to go up en pointe and want to prepare themselves a year or so in advance. If you think you would benefit from wearing this shoe, ask your teacher, and if they agree, come in and we can fit you. It is worth making an appointment for a fitting so you don't have to wait... please call us on 01494 727211 of you would like to book in or just ask us more about this brilliant shoe.

Turning Shoes

turning shoes, capezio pirouette shoe, dance shoes for different skin tones, leather half shoe, canvas half shoe, contemporary dance shoe

These half shoes have become very popular with contemporary and modern dancers. They have a suede sole so are perfect for burn free turns and they look great on a dancers foot too. Now in stock at DB in leather and canvas and to suit different skin tones.

Dance trainers

Dance Trainers

Dance trainers have become a basic item of footwear for many dancers. The split sole and turning point on the sole make them so flexible and easy to turn, slide and dance in and the cushioning in the heel makes them more supportive than jazz shoes. Young dancers love trainers for street, jazz, drama and rehearsals or workshops. Dance students live in them! Adults are feeling the benefits of wearing dance trainers for Zumba, Fitsteps and Jazzercise exercise classes.
