Pointe shoes are so unique – both to the art form and to each individual dancer. This workshop provides the opportunity for aspiring dancers to hear directly from an experienced professional dancer exactly what a dancer goes through to have the best pointe!
How Do You:

  • Choose shoe brand, style, size, width, shank, vamp?
  • Adjust your shoes throughout your training and a career?
  • Decide where to sew ribbons and elastics?
  • Darn your shoes and why would you?
  • Make your shoes last longer?
  • Manage blisters, toe nails, cracked heels and more?
  • Decide what to wear inside your shoes? Tape, ouch pouch, spacers etc.

Plus we will talk about training on pointe – the muscles, the lines, the fatigue, the injuries and more.


Choreographed by Bengt Jörgen, one of Canada’s most distinguished classical ballet choreographers, Canada’s Ballet Jorgen is presenting Anne of Green Gables – The Ballet to local theatres across Canada, including Chilliwack and Maple Ridge.
