Master Pointe Shoe Fitting in Orlando, FL
|Pointe Fitting Info|
A Pointe Shoe is unique to each dancer based on their foot/bone structure, flexibility, strength, ballet technique, level of training, instruction, dance program, flooring and commitment to the art. We are not Brand Specific. We fit to the Foot, the Level, the Need.
Strength building is imperative as a dancer starts in Pre Pointe throughout their years of training. This helps them to become a strong dancer while reducing the chance of injury. Therefore, as Master Fitters and Teachers, we recommend working with a shoe that lets the dancer do the work and not be dependent on a shoe to do the work for them. We recommend Therapy Band exercises and show the dancer how to use it outside of class to work on strengthening toes, top of foot and ankles while also working on flexibility.
We teach each student on correct placement of elastic and ribbons to customize the shoe to their foot and not the old fashion placement theory. This helps to eliminate Achilles tendon problems, gappy sides and massive wrinkling of material en pointe. It creates a more supportive Pointe Shoe that is customized to Your Foot.
We also share with each dancer how to care for their Pointe Shoes and Pointe Accessories to make them last longer.
Our fitters have over 23 years each of experience in proper shoe fittings, have been to factories where Pointe Shoes are made, have danced, worn and taught for many years, studied Anatomy, worked with Podiatrist, Therapist, and Orthopedics along with studies of each Pointe Shoe we stock to not only see how it fits a foot at the time of fitting, but also to analyze how the shoe will react to ones foot in the classroom as it is broken in. They are also Certified in Deep Tissue Advanced Laser Treatments to reduce pain, reduce inflammation and speed healing of a injured area. See "Beyond Dance" tab for info on this therapy.
