Pointe Shoes

Yesterday was the day that Anna has been waiting (and working) for...

Anna had a fitting for her first pair of pointe shoes!!!

She starts pointe work with Rose, her amazing Vaganova teacher, this Monday, when we are back home after the 5-week Boston Ballet Summer Intensive.

I regret that I didn't get any photos of Anna trying on all the different pairs in the store to get just the right fit for her long toes, skinny heels and strong arches, but here she is putting on her pointe shoes after we got back to our apartment...

We still have to sew on the elastics and ribbons, but she was able to releve up to pointe very easily...

And here is a close-up of her absolutely beautiful feet...
This girl was born to be on pointe!
