Pointe Shoe Fitter Reacts to "Kids Meet a Ballerina"

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!

However, with his crazy gymnastics abs, he somehow was able to pull...
