Overview

The only book of its kind, this expanded Second Edition provides a thorough examination of pointe shoes and pointe technique. Dancers and students quickly benefit from the most current research that offers the latest information on hundreds of contemporary designs, materials, products, and suppliers. It illuminates the shoemaking process and gives advice about how to best fit, care for, and custom-order shoes. The basics of pointe readiness, pointe technique, different pointe methods, and the history of dancing on pointe are discussed. Includes an extensive reference to pointe-related injuries, their remedies, and medical and therapy facilities. The authors also provide eight authoritative pointe class syllabi for teachers and students, from the School of American Ballet's first day on pointe to American Ballet Theatre School's advanced class. In the last chapter, twelve prominent ballerinas talk about their shoes, how they found the perfect fit -- and the joy of dancing on pointe.

Studies the development of pointe shoes and the technique of pointe dancing, an artistic innovation that allowed female dancers to carry ballet to new heights of virtuosity.

    Amazingly informative!!!

    This book really shows readers, in an easy to understand text book format, how important the details are regarding pointe work. It talked about shoe brands, preparedness, injury, and even the structure of the generic paste pointe shoe. I read it cover to cover and LOVED it. There is a reason that p, o, and i (the first three letters of the word 'pointe') are next to each other on the keyboard.

    Go to Guide for Dancers

    This was a fantastic book that I could refer to whenever I needed help with perfecting my techinique. This book was easy to understand and helped me feel better about my dancing.

    A wonderful Book

    I liked this book because I answered all of my questions about pointe. I go to the Royal Ballet School, so if I have a question, I can just refer to this book. It is a great help for dancers on pointe of all levels!
