A brief history

After a colourful career with the UCT Ballet Company and South African National Ballet which took her to the UK and the Continent – and many more years as a teacher of ballet, Spanish and Indian dancing – Cynthia Davis opened Ballet Pointe in the old Clicks Buildings in Claremont Main Road in 1980.  

Today the shop can be found on the ground floor of Stadium On Main, a sport and recreation centre in the heart of the Claremont shopping district near Cavendish Square. For over forty years Ballet Pointe has serviced the local dancing community, and a number of our young customers who have gone on to perform on international stages continue to support us.

We pride ourselves in giving customers personal attention. We do special orders for ballet or modern, ballroom or Latin, weddings or special occasions. We try our utmost to satisfy special requests from our customers.

After Cynthia’s retirement in the 1990s, the shop was managed by her daughter-in-law, Nogi. In 2021 Ballet Pointe relaunched in an exciting new partnership with First Edition Clothing, run by May and Nogi.
