Why do you want pointe shoes? Pointe should only be attempted after years of multiple classes per week and then only when approved by a qualified teacher. It should only ever be done under the supervision of a qualified teacher, otherwise you risk serious injury, not to mention learning really bad habits and technique.

As for slippers, you should go to a dance store and get fitted. Slippers are not horribly expensive, and all brands and styles fit differently so you really need to try them on.

I was under the impression that you just started ballet, in which case it would be inappropriate for you to start training en pointe until you start training in FLAT ballet shoes.

discountdance.com has really cheap and good quality everything. But as for pointe shoes I would suggest getting fitted by a teacher or a fitter, after that you can buy them cheaper online.I am sorry your father does not know and hope that one day he will understand. :)

I second what AlwaysonStage said. Do you think maybe because he's new to ballet he's just mixing up his terminology?
