Kids today....

One of the wonderful benefits to being owner of Boulder Body Wear is working with young people and their mentors. Lately, I have been lucky enough to attend many performances from these young creative souls. Poetry, choreography, dance and music. 

My comment on kids today is this- faced with a world of new technology, tightened economic possibilities affecting education and nutrition and an ever changing world of politics and war, these young people are creative, resourceful, intelligent and caring. They have wonderful mentors, teachers and adults. The outcome is beautiful.

Support your local arts groups by attending performances. I guarantee you will benefit in ways beyond the obvious.

I'm so excited for our future.

Angel Organic & a clever idea by Christine Moore

It's that time of year when we start cleaning out our closets and drawers of endless black stretchy garb that has been lovingly used in yoga and dance class. The newest fashions along with the tried and true basics are in Boulder Body Wear now and there is an itch to replace the old with the new.
Christine's clever idea is that you bring your old gently used yoga clothing to us between May 21st and June 11th... We in turn will give it to Angel Organics to distribute. You will get $5 off your next purchase at Boulder Body Wear. Get something new and know that you helped someone else while doing so.

Angel Organic cultivates and nurtures a meaningful path to integrative health and healing pracitices within under served individuals and communities. Your gently used items will be distributed to those who can use them now at the Boulder County Safehouse and the Family Learning Center of Boulder.

Celebrate dance with some info...

Pointe shoes, pointe shoes, pointe shoes. 

For every ballerina, getting fit for your first pair of pointe shoes is a BIG DEAL.  With every big deal there are always expectations, rumors and some misconceptions. Dis-spell the myths! Check out our video on pointe shoe basics or stop by for one of our workshops on pointe shoe basics. Find out the difference between pre-pointe shoes & full shank shoes, what to expect from a professional pointe shoe fitting, and shoe and foot care. Our pointe shoe specialist, Mimi Ferrie, will take you through the basics and beyond.

Struggling to make the perfect bun? Frustrated with your daughter walking out of class with her bun out of sorts?   Check out Bun Making 101 where Jin Talcott takes you through not only how to make a basic ballerina bun but also a stage bun, sock bun (for you ladies blessed with lots of hair) or how to attach an Allegro Bun for ladies with more sporty cuts.

Applying fake eyelashes, stage makeup that doesn't sweat off and then getting all of it off is covered by professional ballerina Kayla Berg in Stage Make Up Made Easy. 

Get the basics out of the way and dance more!
