“As elegant as dancing on pointe may appear, it is an athletic talent which requires strength as well as grace. The shoes involved are truly considered to be part of the foot and a continuation of the leg line. It absolutely must fit properly to provide the support dancing on pointe requires.” Anatomy of a Pointe Shoe by Capezio
Therefore we ask that customers schedule an appointment for their pointe shoes. This ensures we have a pointe shoe fitter working at that time who is properly trained.
We schedule one hour for each fitting. Below is what we ask you to do before you attend your fitting.
- Wear convertible tights
- Wear clothes that are easy to move in
- Make sure your toenails are trimmed
- If you’ve had pointe shoes before, bring all of your dance supplies (including your old pointe shoes)
