PPT (perfect pointe tips)!!! Aug. 4 2008
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I recently got my first pointe shoes and was very excited with them, they were what I'd worked so long for. A little while later I received an Amazon gift card but was not sure what to use it on. After choosing and receiving this book, I was completely enthralled. There were a few things that I was hoping to read about that I did not find, but there were also more things than I expected, such as useful exercises and interesting history.

Great tips for intermediate/advanced pointe dancers! March 15 2011
By Haley Mathiot - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was very satisfied with Pointe Shoes: Tips and Tricks. It was packed full of more information than I expected and thought possible in such a small book (it's a quarter inch thick, perfect size for a dance bag). There were sections on how to pick the right pair, info and history about pointe shoes, tips and tricks, and physical therapy exercises on how you can fix up and strengthen your feet.

The main section of the book, the tips and tricks, is on how you can cut, sew, trim edit, change, and fix shoes to make them fit the foot exactly. Some of these tips I encourage you to use for your flat shoes too!

Pointe Shoes Tips and Tricks is a fantastic resource that every intermediate/advanced pointe dancer and teacher should have!

This book is loaded with information on how to make your pointe shoes fit like custom made shoes. So if you have ill fitting shoes you can't wear, this book will help you make them work for you.

Although I'm not a dancer, I truly enjoyed this book. It's very interesting with many alternative ways of adjusting pointe shoes. It even has a section for care and exercise of your feet.
