Are you ready for pointe shoes?

May 1, 2018

 

Pardon me while I get on my soapbox...I've gotten several calls to fit girls younger than 9 for pointe shoes. Yes, pointe shoes, not ballet shoes - "for fun so she can dance on her toes!" There is a huge difference between pointe shoes and ballet shoes.

 

Did you know that

 

1. if the growth plate isn't mature, there is potential for injury?

2. many years of ballet training is needed before even considering moving to pointe?

 

Please be aware, that I will never fit anyone for pointe shoes that young. Pointe shoes are not for dress up. I take the health and safety of dancers above profit.

 

Here's a more detailed article about when is the right time for starting pointe  - please share with those you know who are unfamiliar with pointe shoes.
