There's not a single ballet dancer I know who doesn't have a love/hate affair with her pointe shoes. Her artistry depends on her shoes never letting her down. But while they can give her the strength and support to find freedom onstage, if she doesn't have the right fit or doesn't understand how to use them, her shoes will simply be an endless source of blisters, bruised toenails, Achilles tendonitis and more.
Next Saturday the School at Steps, along with Pointe, Dance Magazine and Dance Spirit, presents a pointe shoe workshop and fair. Learn about proper foot care from a podiatrist, get fitted by a professional pointe shoe fitter who will find the right maker for your foot type, find out ways to make your feet stronger and listen to advice from the pros.
Date: Saturday, October 16
Location: Steps on Broadway, 2121 Broadway @ 74th St, NYC
