Pointe Shoe Fitter Reacts to "Kids Meet a Ballerina"

This week we decided NOT to traumatize Josephine, and instead had her react to a sweet video of kids meeting a ballerina! This video ticked all the boxes in the "wholesome" category and we even see Josephine shed a few tears when one of the kids reminds her of her little brother! Although the ballerinas does mistakenly say that her pointe shoes are made out of wood (LOL), this is one of the first reactions where Josephine did not have to cringe and watch through her fingers the entire time. Watch the video to see her full reaction!

"I think living my truth is more important than the fear of not having a dance career" - Lennon Torres This week Josephine fit Lennon Torres, a transgender dancer, for her first pair of pointe shoes!

Fitting Miss Auti for Pointe Shoes

Josephine fits youtuber, Miss Auti! This week Josephine hung out with Auti Kamal from the Youtube channel, Dance with Miss Auti!

The materials they are made of are vastly different from a traditional pointe shoe, so they do not break down in the same way that many shoes do. Because of this, Ashley is able to make them last around a year, as opposed to the 1-2...
