Earlier this month, the teachers at my studio took nine girls to the big city to get fitted for pointe shoes. My daughter has been dancing at this studio for 2 years and there hasn’t been anyone dancing en pointe (except teachers) so to see this many girls mature and ready for pointe work is exciting.
My little miss is wondering when she can get some. It’s going to be a long five years, sweetie! At least. Relax, or don’t relax as the case may be. Tummy in. Be strong. Keep dancing and keep working. The time will fly!
The girls are positively giddy over their shiny, pink, pretty shoes; so am I.
