Review: Pointe Shoes: Tips and Tricks

7:00 PM

I was impressed with Pointe Shoes: Tips and Tricks. It was packed full of more information than I expected and thought possible in such a small book (it's a quarter inch thick, perfect size for a dance bag). There were sections on how to pick the right pare, info and history about pointe shoes, tips and tricks, and physical therapy exercises on how you can fix up and strengthen your feet.

The main section of the book, the tips and tricks, is on how you can cut, sew, trim edit, change, and fix shoes to make them fit the foot exactly. Some of these tips I encourage you to use for your flat shoes too!
Pointe Shoes Tips and Tricks is a fantastic resource that every intermediate/advanced pointe dancer and teacher should have!

I would recommend this book to advanced dancers and teachers who want to know the little things they can do to perfect their fit, and for fitters who may come across problem feet!

Pointe Shoes: Tips and Tricks for Choosing, Tuning, and Care - $9.00 on Amazon, or $0.00 for Kindle Unlimited members!
