"Ballet shop"
 
   Dear all,

Hello, I have just re-started a ballet lesson in covent garden, London. I wonder whether any of you could recommend me a good ballet shop, which sells leotards, warm-ups, shoes etc...since I am quite new to London, I do not know much about ballet shops around here.
Only shop I know of is "Gamba" in covent garden, but I would like to explore a little bit more...

If you could let me know the shops located in central London, I would deeply appreciate it.

   The Freed shop is in Covent Garden, I think. Very near to the Dr Marten's one - two of my favourite shops!

   Freed is in St. Martin's Lane. There are a few shops towards the north end of Drury Lane, as well.

   Dear Bruce, Flight and Alison

Thank you very much for your useful information! That really helps! I'm gonna check up the shops you recommended.

Last monday I took the first lesson and all my muscles are aching now....Feels like an old woman, having difficulty for going up and down the stairs...Hee-hee!!

Anyway, thank all of you again.

Love, piglet

   By the way, a little tip, either take lots of money with you when you visit a ballet shop or stay well away!!! Once I'm inside those doors, I could buy practically everything and have a reason for needing all those things. You never leave with just what you went in to buy!! I'm so glad your fist class went well, have a good shopping spree, some of the people who work in those shops are the nicest people. Sansha is 65 Endell St, Porselli is on West st, Bloch and Dancia International are on Drury Lane-DI is number 187 (all are in the CG area). Sorry if I've duplicated other people's info-but I can't remember what they posted.
