If you are new to pointe shoes, learning how to tie them so that they stay looking pretty is a part of the package. If you are a ballet teacher, you’ll want to be able to show your students the proper way to tie ribbons. This video on YouTube is a good one for going over the basics.
I used to use hairspray to keep my ribbons tucked in for performances. Every dancer comes up with their own tricks for keeping things neat and tidy. Feel free to share if you have something to add…I love hearing how each dancer does things. It’s always a suprise to see what other people come up with!
