For this first month of the year 4dancers will be taking a closer look at the pointe shoe and all that surrounds it. Tune in for more about things such as:
The process of raising sheep to provide lambs wool for ballet dancers
A closer look at Freed pointe shoes, including the history, how they are constructed and how to fit them properly
Exercises you can do to improve your arch
And much more!
We’ll also be featuring great content from our columnists, including new contributor, Jan Dunn, who will be talking about dancer wellness. Toss in a teaching tip or two and our new “Dance Blog Spotlight” feature and we’re off and running to meet 2012 with more quality content for readers than ever before!
Happy New Year!
