About The Works
Join our Lead Pointe Shoe Fitter to learn about NBS The Shoe Room’s fitting process! Designed to help dance educators understand what our experts look for during a fitting, how we identify solutions to common challenges with pointe shoes and more! Pointe shoes are a tool, and it is important for teachers to: help their dancers understand how that tool can work for them, identify challenges and start an open and conscious discussion about potential solutions. After attending this workshop, teachers will come away with a better understanding of the pointe shoe fitting process and how to solve common problems.
