Group Pointe Events at Allegro

img_20161028_120524We love doing events at Allegro! After hours events give us the opportunity to spend uninterrupted time with groups of excited and dedicated pointe dancers, which we really enjoy. During these events, dancers get fit by one of our professional pointe fitters, with the opportunity to try on a large variety of pointe shoe brands and styles. It is very important to us to find the right fit for every dancer.

Dancers who attended after hours events also participate in an educational workshop. We offer two different workshops- one for new pointe dancers and one for experienced pointe dancers. Our workshop for new pointe dancers includes topics such as: sewing, accessories, pointe shoe anatomy, the lifetime of pointe shoes, and more! The workshop for experienced pointe dancers includes topics such as: jet glueing, darning, varying sewing techniques, ¾ shanking, and more! These workshops can also be crafted around the interests and preferences of each group of dancers.

Event participants also enjoy refreshments and extra discounts on non-pointe related items! Allegro wants to celebrate your hard work!
To schedule your group pointe fitting event, call our Barrington store (847) 277-1009 or Evanston store (847) 733-8460 or email our Pointe Specialist, Alexa: alexa@allegrodanceboutique.com!

We had the BEST time creating an Allegro Pop-Up Shop in the Joffrey studios during their summer intensives! We displayed some of our favorite, most sought after dance products, and the dancers swooped in like chirping bluebirds, eager to peruse our in-studio store.

There were many happy dancers leaving with some of our most stylish leotards and skirts, and others picking up dance class essentials-without having to venture out of the studio! We had so much fun offering our delightful dance goodies, and are thankful for all who shopped with us!
