What do you prioritize in a pointe shoe?
In this week's video, Josephine shares her fitting experience with a dancer in Reno, NV. (Did you know that ThePointeShop travels? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to book a studio fitting!)
It's not uncommon for some ballet companies to put all their dancers in the same brand. However, this dancer is from a studio that puts all of their dancers in the same model of shoe.
Josephine discusses why this is limiting as a pointe shoe fitter. She also explains how this can be harmful for dancers - even to the pointe of causing injury.
Every dancer has different needs. Be sure to advocate for yourself during a pointe shoe fitting - but also collaborate with your dance teacher & pointe shoe fitter to make sure you have the best possible fitting.
