Team Talk Odette! #104 - Help for Pointe Shoes
May 20, 2013
Hello

I imagine that every dreaming ballet dancer wants to start wearing pointe shoes one day. I could not wait to start and remember the moment right until this day.

I trusted the guidance of my ballet teacher when I was younger and began pointe work at my local dance school, at about 11 years old.

At some stage, you will reach the time to start pointe work too.

You can see more about whether you are ready for pointe here -

Pointe can feel like a real challenge at the beginning, but you can learn how to survive in pointe shoes with the hundreds of pages my website. I am here to help!

Best wishes,

Odette
