Choosing the right pointe shoe
At The Dance Store, we know that choosing that first pair of pointe shoes is one of the most exciting and important steps you will make as a dancer. We also know that each foot is uniquely different and ensuring the correct fit is crucial to helping you progress in class and on stage. Because this can be a long process--many times 30 minutes to an hour to find the right fit--our experienced fitters are available by appointment only for first time pointe fittings or group fittings. Because many of our customers travel 30 minutes or more to get to us, it is always a good idea to call before you arrive to ensure that one of our fitters is in the store. We carry an extensive pointe shoe collection including Bloch, Capezio, Mirella, Grishko, Russian Pointe, and Gaynor Minden.
