Pointe Shoe Fitter Reacts to Ballet Tik Toks - Part 11

Here I am, once again - feeling lost, and now and then.... (comment below if you got that 2000's children's sitcom reference) Tik Tok 11, y'all.

Pointe Shoe Fitter Reacts to Ballerina Pole Dancer

"There's a pole. There's a POLE! I know where we're going with this!" The title pretty much says it all.  This week, Josephine reacted to *beautiful* dancer Elena Gibson. According to her Wikipedia page, Gibson trained in classical ballet at Canada's National Ballet School as a young dancer.
