Very exciting time in our household, we are starting Ballet and Gymnastics in a week or so. Where in London should I go to get the leotards for both? Preferably somewhere in central or north london if you have any ideas, as I don't know where to start.
You might want to consider getting ballet leotards only for now - my DDs wore their ballet leotards to gym for the first term (as did most of the children in the class), and I only bought gym leotards when I was sure they liked it and were going to continue.
If they are quite young I don't think gym classes would have a problem with that.
Have you checked with both dance and gym that there isn't a strict uniform. Both of ours are very prescriptive, even down to the socks for ballet. That said, at both dance and gym the children are allowed to wear legging/shorts and t-shirts for the 1st few weeks until you're sure they're going to stay with it. No-one expects you to have full uniform on the 1st day.
