The History of Pointe Shoes: The Landmark Moments That Made Ballet's Signature Shoe What It Is Today

Pointe shoes, with their ability to elevate a dancer both literally and metaphorically to a superhuman realm, are the ultimate symbol of a ballerina's ethereality and hard work.

Before our world was flipped upside down in March these dancers were preparing a dance which included lyrics:
“Let’s be pioneers and we’ll build our home in the great unknown...”

Extreme Stretching: The Risks of Sitting in Oversplits

Yes! Hyper-stretching in most cases breeds injury that appears later in life; just one of the many reasons we love teaching our summer STRETCH SCULPT STAMINA session. We will be offering it in the fall as well!

It's a familiar sight on Instagram: A dancer lounges casually in an oversplit, drinking her morning coffee. One foot is propped up on blocks (or even a chair) as her legs split well beyond 180 degrees.
