I have always wondered the history of pointe shoes. I was taught the history back in college but not this indepth! The recommendations made by the experts is also very handy, it's almost like you are interviewing the dancers themselves! Very well written and easy to understand, must have for any dance studio!
5.0 out of 5 starsA Fantastic Resource for Dancers and Parents
23 January 2013 - Published on Amazon.com
My 11-year-old daughter has read this from cover to cover at least once and absolutely loves it. It includes information that is both interesting (ex. how pointe shoes are made) and extremely practical and helpful (ex. how to sew on ribbons/elastics, strengthen feet, etc.). As a parent, I appreciate the care taken in this book to explain and advise about the correct and safe use of pointe shoes. As a dancer, my daughter has gotten a lot of useful information that has improved her first few months en pointe. Very helpful and informative. Highly recommended.
