I'm Kate. I started ballet at 11, and I started pointe the same day. I'm short (there, I said it), and I always felt like pointe shoes made my feet look stubby and small. I spent years trying every shoe in the land, but nothing ever felt right. I would get close, and just accept the status quo. Pointe shoe fitting has taught me that the right shoe is out there, and thanks to The Pointe Shop, your search doesn't have to be as long as mine. No one should struggle through the journey for the perfect shoe alone.
In addition to pointe shoe fitting, I'm a member of Charlottesville Ballet, and I'm bringing The Pointe Shop with me to the East Coast! I'm based out of Virginia, but I'll be traveling all over as a mobile fitter. Too far from California to visit the show room? I got you.
I'm also a teacher of ballet and pointe. I'm a firm believer in the idea of passing your training and knowledge forward, and strive to do that as much as possible. I have a passion for my art form today just as much as I did the first time I took class when I was 11, and I don't see that changing any time soon.
