Graceful technique and consummate execution are only possible with perfectly fitting pointe shoes. For the first time, the ballerina Angela Reinhardt has now put together over 1OO tips and tricks for complete personal pointe shoe tuning, for beginners, students and professionals.
Over 28O colour illustrations show how to modify shoes step by step, using scissors, needle and thread, hot water and elastics, to adapt them perfectly to the foot and to all types of floor surface, and to help them last as long as possible. As well as tips on choosing, modification and upkeep, this lovingly and meticulously prepared book contains worthwhile information on the history and manufacture of pointe shoes and valuable suggestions for foot fitness.
