Dear Students,

When I was a little girl I loved my Pointe Shoes so much I would sleep in them, my bedroom walls were decorated with worn out pointe shoes and posters of ballerinas- live, sleep, eat , breathe, dance!  (I certainly did)  Pointe shoes are like a right of passage for a young ballet dancer.  They are a reward for your dedication to studying technique and also the beginning of a new responsibility as a dancer…dedication, devotion, and passion to a truly beautiful art form.

On Thursday night there was a new and somewhat magical energy in Studio A, a room full of aspiring dancers stepped into “new” shoes for the first time.  We sat together and learned how to lace the satin ribbons just right- tying and untying learning a special new skill that has been passed on from mentor to student through the years.

I feel so proud to share the wonderful information I’ve gathered throughout my career and still gather as I continue to learn more about how the body moves and expresses itself through dance.

Congratulations to all of my Pointe students- I am proud of you!

Passing on the wisdom to her students.
