Pointe Shoe Perfection

I adore this video...

New York City Ballet "Pointe Shoes" from Galen Summer on Vimeo.


  1. what a great video! you know, as a kid i never thought much about the cost of point shoes because my mom would get them for me. but wow, 67$ for a pair? that's so expensive. i think they were like 30 or 40 when i was a teenager. also, i never knew about sewing the inside in the back to get rid of bagging. i never thought of that but it makes sense. i want that guys job: ballet shoe supervisor! :)

  2. So interesting! I just learned so much watching that. :)

  3. I never thought about sewing the inside to get rid of bagging either! That Wendy Whalen knows all the good tricks!
