Chung has 2 babies of her own. In fact, when Josephine started working for SF Ballet as their official shoe fitter, Chung was on maternity leave for her second child.  Then, Josephine saw a video of Frances doing fouettes en pointe with her baby bump.  And months later, the two sit down on a studio floor to talk about babies, ballet, and motherhood.

Reacting to POINTE SHOE SURGERY

We just need to highlight this comment from one of our viewers: "@TheTimHall" said: "Ballet Dancer Breaking In A New Car:- Rips out the seats. - Jumps up and down on the hood. - Drives the car down some steps. - Drives it for 1 day. - Buy a new car..." Yep. That pretty much summarizes pointe shoes hacks - but thank goodness it's a shoe and not a car!  This is Josephine's favorite series to react to. It features all the cool little - but sometimes brutal - ways that ballerinas will customize their pointe shoes. Every person's feet...

Nikolay NeoSmart - Pointe Shoe Review

Josephine reviews the new NeoSmart pointe shoes by Nikolay! The NeoSmart is another variation of the SmartPointe!
