Pointe Shoe Academy
Starting Pointe Shoes? Learn how to choose, adjust and take care of your pointe shoes!
BestPointe.com is proud to present our Free online course for pointe beginners. You will find out answers to the most frequent questions about your first (second) pair of pointe shoes. Pointe Shoe Academy is a series of ten daily Newsletter Lessons. We prepared them for beginner pointe users, but some topics could be useful also for advanced students - and maybe even for ballet teachers.
When I was putting my pointe shoes on for the first time, I was desperately looking for a book, a DVD, a website, or any other "Pointe shoes for dummies" kind of manual where I could have learned how to sew these ribbons, what to do and what not to do with these shoes - and, most importantly, why was it so painful the first time and how to stop this pain - once and forever. There was no such book or DVD, and I spent a lot of time researching... So here we are, eight years later, creating this manual - and I am so glad we have managed to get this information together and hope it will help someone to enjoy ballet day after day!
