Ballet Slippers



Hi! It’s MilliMouse again.


I’m glad you came back to visit me.


Today we’re going to talk about ballet slippers.

Just about everybody who takes ballet classes wears slippers — even boys.

They all look pretty much the same just different colors or sizes.

(My brother has reeeeally big feet!)


Here’s what ballet slippers look like.

We sew elastic on our slippers so they don’t fall off while we’re dancing. 

Here’s a place where your mom can find out how to sew the elastic on for you:




Here’s a video for you.  It’s children dancing Snow White.  Hope you like it. 



Ask your mom or dad to help you print out this picture so you can color it:



Next week we’ll talk about pointe shoes.

I hope you’ll come back.





Hi! My name is Millicent


My name is Millicent.

This is my blog.

It is all about ballet.


I hope you will read it or ask your mom or dad to read it to you.

I live in a house in a grassy meadow with my mom and dad and brother, Mortimer.

This is a picture of my house:

My brother and I take ballet classes at Madame Souris’ Academy of Dance.

Here is a picture of the school and our teacher:

Next week we will talk about what a “tutu” is.

See you then.
