Our Story

The Shoe Room at Canada's National Ballet School

The Shoe Room, a ballet boutique based in Toronto Canada, was founded in 1998 by Canada’s National Ballet School (NBS) to share our pointe shoe fitting expertise with the broader community. All proceeds from The Shoe Room are returned to NBS to support programs that offer meaningful dance experiences to youth in the community in need, support the wellness of seniors in all states of health, and ensure that talented youth can realize their full potential regardless of financial barriers.  

We strive to ensure every dancer finds their perfect pointe shoe. The boutique holds over 8,000 pairs of pointe shoes in a variety of skin tones and offers the largest selection in Canada. Our expert fitters have traveled throughout North America fitting both Professional Company dancers and students from private studios. Our state of the art pointe shoe fitting space allows a one-on-one private experience with our highly trained fitters surrounded by beautiful pointe shoes, while our Virtual Pointe Shoe Fittings have allowed us to enter studios around the globe. Our dancewear collections include Canadian designers and unique finds. We understand the lifestyle of a dancer and the importance of providing inclusive styles that provide fit and function without sacrificing style.
