En Pointe is a one-of-a-kind resource for dancers, students and everyone interested in the practice of pointe work. It is the first book on the subject of pointe technique to feature a thorough, step-by-step guide to pointe shoe fitting that addresses specific, structural differences of the feet, which often are overlooked in other resources on the subject, in addition to an extensive, illustrated section on strengthening exercises to prepare new students for pointe work and to strengthen specific areas of weakness in dancers currently on pointe; as well as detailed information on pointe shoe care and alteration to suit every type of foot. Written by Ballet Master Matthew Skylar Jetton, En Pointe features conversations on practical pointe technique drawn from the experiences of his professional dance career and as an instructor of intermediate and advanced pointe work and competitive ballet. Featuring over 25 pictures and step-by-step instructions, this is truly an essential resource for every ballet dancer.
