Celebrate this important day with a group pointe fitting event that is fun, informative, and memorable!
Who: Our group fitting parties are meant for 6-15 dancers and are best for those going on pointe for the first time. Returning pointe students from the same studio are invited to join the first timers, as long as the maximum number of students does not exceed 18.
What: Allegro Dance Boutique has the largest selection of pointe shoes in the Chicagoland area.
Along with her new pair of pointe shoes, students can expect:
A group workshop on shoe care, with hands-on examples of worn shoes to demonstrate the pointe shoe lifecycle
A "Words of Pointe Shoe Wisdom" informational packet to take home
Information and instruction on pointe shoe sewing techniques
A pointe shoe quiz (just for fun!) on pointe shoe anatomy
A certificate of achievement for going up en pointe
An array of goodies and sparkling cider (plus wine for the adults!)
When: Before or after regular store hours, so it's a private affair just for your students, parents, and teachers.
Where: Fitting events are held at both our Evanston or Barrington boutiques. Please specify which location you would prefer. Our Barrington boutique is more suitable for very large groups.
How: Please have a representative from your studio (teacher, owner, or parent) contact us to set up an event for your studio. Book in advance and lock in your date! Large fitting events MUST be scheduled in advance so we have adequate time to schedule extra staff.
