pointe shoe fitter reacts to BALLET TIKTOK 32

Reacting to Ballet Tik Tok...the series that won't quit (thank the pointe shoe gods). This week, we take a little breather from the Mama Jo series, to take a quick dip into the ballet internet pool. What's great is that anyone can enjoy ballet content. It's been incredible for platforms like Tik Tok and Instagram to give us all a peek behind the curtain of ballet at all levels. So long are the days of gate kept ballet talent - it's amazing to see dancers all over the world share their journey. What's your favorite part of ballet tik tok?...

Nikolay NeoSmart - Pointe Shoe Review

Josephine reviews the new NeoSmart pointe shoes by Nikolay! The NeoSmart is another variation of the SmartPointe! The SmartPointe featured a wider, more generous box and softer shank than many of the previous Nikolay models. The NeoSmart has a broader box with more room across the metatarsals and generally more volume inside the shoe. This is really great for people with wider feet and, though the 2007 last has been very popular, this new last is much more comfortable for many people. The box of the Nikolay NeoSmart has been shortened a little bit for better roll through. The vamp...

The platform is slightly tilted to help dancers get over the box easily. The inside of the box of the Ava has a microfiber lining, which can be a bit tough to sew through, but it is moisture wicking and sticks...

Josephine can't watch Dance Academy

Ah, Nutcracker season.... Can you hear the Overture as everyone is giddy on stage? Can you hear the nuts cracking? Can you hear the pointe shoes snapping? Well, Josephine certainly can in this week's video. We return to another fan favorite: Dance Academy. This time, a touch more drama with a Season 2 episode. Tara, Abigail and Grace are in their frenemies era...and Grace is at it again trying to manipulate those around her to get what she wants (friendship? or control? attention?).  And unfortunately, pointe shoes are involved. Actually - pointe shoes were harmed in the making of this...
