Pointe Shoe Fitter Reacts to Eugene Lee Yang's "I'm Gay"

Grab your tissues, everybody. This week Josephine reacted to Eugene Lee Yang's coming out video, simply titled "I'm Gay." Released on YouTube in 2019, this dance shot film tells Eugene's story. Born and raised in a conservative, Catholic town in Texas, he struggled through his adolescence with his sexuality, but also his Asian identity. The video shows the conflict he faced as an adult, and where he stands now. Needless to say, Josephine picked up a lot of what Eugene was putting down. As a fellow Korean, there were many moments of empathy. Like this video, we are also fundraising...

Fitting for Demi Pointe Shoes

Although it is not common in the U.S.A., demi pointe shoes are an intermediary shoe for students preparing for pointe. The outer construction looks pointe shoe like, but there is much less paste in the shoe overall than a pointe shoe, and no shank.

Pointe Shoe Fitter Reacts to Instagram Reels

This week, Josephine takes a look another dive into the ballet internet: Instagram Reels edition. We've been loving the Tik Toks everyone's been tagging us in, but we also couldn't ignore reels! In our very first Tik Tok reaction video, Josephine reacted to Dr. Mike reacting to some intense knuckle stands (and jumps yikes). There were a few comments that mentioned a cultural dance associated with this - and Instagram algorithm has delivered.  How did Josephine react? You probably know, but it's way more fun to see it for yourself ;)
