Pointe Shoe Brand and Padding?

Pointe shoe brand and padding?

Shoes: My favorite pointe shoe brand is Grishkos because they are what my feet feel and look best in. I recently tried Freeds, which looked amazing but got too soft too fast. Those are generally used by professionals who get their shoes paid for by the company for single performances. Pads: I love Ouch Pouches for when my feet are really hurting, but I mostly use paper towels folded around my foot (I know, wierd, but others at my studio use them and they really help you feel the floor). These can hurt if I am doing a lot of pointe, so then I switch to Ouch Pouches. Gel pads numb your feet and are WAY too thick, so I hate using them. The moment I tried them, my dancing got worse because I could not feel where my feet were in relationshipto the floor. Ouch Pouches ARE gel, but they do not numb your feet and are not anywhere near as thick.

my dance recitals tomorrow.. what can i do to get more warmed up for my first pointe dance ?

Pointe warm up. In bare feet do pony trots, pushing from the ball of one foot through to the floor and then the other foot. Do tendus to stretch insoles. In pointe shoes.do pony trots again. Make sure your feet a wrapped and you feel safe before going up. Rub feet and ankles and do jumps to stretch the feet. Good luck.

my daughters 9 yrs old can she start pointe yet?shes had 8 yrs of dance including ballet is she ready?

No toe shoes before ages 12 or thirteen. It has nothing to do with how good she is. If her feet are still growing, pointe can do major damage that will last her a life time. My sister in law started at ten and her feet are destroyed! Her turning foot is 2 1/2 shoe sizes smaller than the other. And that is the best that can happen.

preparing for pointe shoes ANYONE FROM CHADSTONE AREA? IN VICTORIA AUSTRALIA?

I am American so no, not from your area, but I would suggest if you are starting pointe to do lots of elaves and relaves and be able to balance in pase to build up your strength try to do them in flat then demi then high demi. Do not wear your pointe shoes to practice alone until you are strong enough to wear them. If you can get a thera-band there are several stretching exercises that help your ankles. You could order them on them net or probably from a pharmacy as they are used in physical therapy. Your shoes should first be fitted in person by a store fitter or your teacher. (Preferably your teacher.) He/she should be able to look at your feet in the shoes to determine, width, vamp length, ribbon position, elastic kinds and position, whether you will use padding,toe-pads or paper towels,or toe tape, you will probably get a softer shoe than you will use later as your feet get stronger so your first pair may not last long. Do not be disappointed. You can help them last by using shellac on the arch and jet glue on the boxes and arch inside if you need to stretch the wear out a little longer. As your feet grow and you grow stronger in ballet, be aware that your feet size may change, the shape and width may change. These are normal occurrences and the main reason why people have to change types/styles/brands of pointe shoes. Private lessons at first are good ways to build up your confidence and for the teacher to see exactly how your body is working with your shoes. This way more personal attention is given so that you teacher is aware of problems in technique and potential problems with shoes if they are not fitting right or your feet have changed. Flexibility is important in ballet but in pointe strength is more important. Your Bloch store should have an experienced fitter, My first pointes were Capezio but my daughter's third pair was Bloch Sonatas and they did really well for her for years. Good luck and enjoy !

Help with Grishko Pro 2007 Pointe Shoes?
Help with Grishko Pro 2007 Pointe Shoes?Grishkos are notorious for having hard, hard, HARD shanks. I wear the softest shanks they make and I still have to break them in the door before I can function in them. Speaking of, try that. Mark on the shoe where you need it to bend under your arch. Find the heaviest door you can, open it, and put the shoe in the space where the hinges are so that when you close the door, it will break the shank where you marked it. Do a practice run before you actually close door all the way so you can make sure it will break where you need it to— — — — — —What Kind of Pointe Shoes are the best for people with very high arches?i might bypass to get your ft measured for pointe shoes so as which you are going to have precise measurements to grant providers. i think of that's a stable thought to get the russian pointes as they are very difficult wearing and make pointe artwork look lots greater desirable— — — — — —Gaynor Minden pointe shoes?you just have to keep working at it. if your feet are your weakness then you have to strengthen them. getting gaynor mindens will not solve this problem. they do make things easier, but too easy. you wo not be able to strengthen your feet. and have you broken your pointe shoes in? that could be a problem if you have not broken them in properly. and you've only been on pointe for a year so give it time. i do not think they support your foot or look very good. but you know you can always try them and see if you like them— — — — — —Opinions on beginner pointe shoes.?You cannot buy pointe shoes online unless you've had the exact same kind before. There is not such a thing as a good 'beginner' pointe shoe, as everyone's feet are different.

Get an elastic band sewed on them to help them stay on and practice the basics— — — — — —advice with turing on pointe shoes?Do not be afraid & do not overthink the turns, but also, do not hurt yourself. If you do not feel comfortable, ask your instructor if you can continue working at the barre to prepare your muscles for the turns. If you would like to try the turns though, then go for it! Strengthen your legs, ankles, & feet with plie releves both at the barre & in center. Plie releve in first, second, third, fifth, & sous-sus... 8 times in each position. Increase to 16 after you've gained the strength need to hold your balance & roll through your shoes (flat, demi, pointe, demi, flat). Also, plie releve to pointe in coupe derriere. 8-16 times on each leg facing the barre, then when you feel strong enough, try that same combination with only one hand on the barre. Master these 3 types of turns (chaines, pique, & pirouette) in your flat shoes before attempting them en pointe. Things to remember for any turn: 1. Keep your abdominal muscles tight. 2. Hold your arms in first position (little finger at your bottom rib is the proper height). 3. PLIE! PLIE! PLIE! 4. Spot the wall according to your position whether it be en face or croise. Your eyes are always the last to leave & the first to return. 5. Stretch your legs fully... unflexed knees will be the death of your pirouettes. 6. Keep your bottom under & muscles tight. Do not tuck or sink back in your hips & do not arch your back. 7. Hold your retire position without falter! Keep your heel forward & toes back. Here are a few exercises to help you: 1. Practice plenty of releves to strengthen your ankles & arches. 2. Start facing the barre (both hands on the barre) in fifth, right foot front. Plie releve to coupe 8 times with the right & 8 to the left. 3. Facing the barre in fifth... plie, releve to retire, close front. Do 16 with each leg. 4. When you master the first exercise, continue facing the barre & do that same exercise, but with passe closing back (the pattern will be right, left, right, left). Do a total of 16. 5. Stand in fifth with your left leg coupe derriere & plie releve to pointe 16 times. Repeat with the right leg in coupe. 6. Practice balancing in passe for 8 counts, arms in first. 7. Once you have all previous exercises, start doing them with only one hand on the barre, then move on to no barre. ***With all the aforementioned exercises, start slowly (1/2 time with the music) & speed up the tempo only when you feel comfortable enough. If you have to, start with 8 of each exercise, then move up to 16 & continue increasing the amount. Also, create a mental checklist of everything I mentioned that you MUST remember when turning. Repeat each step to yourself till it becomes habit.*** Remember what the names of these turns means; that will help you to properly execute them. Chaines: Meaning "a chain". They are quite literally a chain of turns on 2 legs. Begin in plie, tendu devant. You must pique onto a STRAIGHT leg (knees flexed completely) & never come down from pointe. Use the momentum of your working side (left if going right, right if going left) to keep the turns clean & quick. Keep your heels together in these turns as well. Pique: Meaning "to prick". You prick the floor... my instructors have always told me to imagine that the floor is boiling hot & you will burn your toes if you leave them there for too long. It's a very brisk step. Once again, you start in plie, tendu devant & pique onto your working leg. Arms start in first, open to second while turning, & close back to first when you reach your starting position. Your standing leg must stay straight & remember to plie after every turn to keep balance & speed. Your non-standing leg (the leg you plie with) goes to retire derriere while turning & goes back to a turned out plie when you complete a full rotation. To master a pique turn whether on flat or pointe, you must keep your back perfectly straight. No arching or tucking. Pirouette: Meaning "whirled" or "spin". You will either begin in fourth or fifth if you are in beginner pointe (pirouettes from second will come later). For fourth, keep your core tight & shoulders down. Plie with both legs, arms in 3rd. Pull straight up from your hips & execute your turn. REMEMBER TO SPOT! Good Luck!
