Sinopsis: Graceful technique and perfect execution for a dancer are possible only with perfectly fitting pointe shoes. For the first time in print, ballerina Angela Reinhardt, formerly a principal dancer of the Komischer Opera Ballet of Berlin, has put together over 100 tips and tricks for personal pointe shoe tuning, for both beginners and professionals.
Over 280 colour illustrations show how to modify shoes step by step, using scissors, needle and thread, hot water and elastic, to adapt pointe shoes perfectly for all types of foot and all types of floor surface. As well as tips on choosing, modification, and upkeep, the book contains information on the history and manufacture of pointe shoes and valuable suggestions for foot fitness.
