  2. Hi Sarah, pretty ballet shoes, but I can never get my head around tiptoeing in a pair, how can toes ever be that strong?

    • The toes are strong, but the shoes are stronger! The girls have to train hard and build up their strength before they are allowed on pointe. This is my daughter’s first pair of pointe shoes. x

  3. Well Sarah, they wouldn’t fit me. I take it your daughter has been in a competition or these are new? And please do forgive my ignorance, I confess I don’t know a huge maoutn about balet.

      I don’t know that much about ballet either! I’ve had to learn with my daughter, whereas most ballet mums have done ballet themselves. I

  10. Awww beautiful, what a memory. As a mum of three boys something I’ll prob never photograph. Such beauty in a pair of shoes.

    • You definitely won’t be photographing them as even if boys do ballet, they don’t go on pointe!
      As a mum of two boys I guess it’s actually I surprise that I’m photographing them too – I didn’t really expect to have a daughter and I’m definitely a dancer myself!

  12. So excited for her. It’s such a big moment when you do ballet. I remember my first shop for pointe shoes took 2 hours and we left without a pair. Had to go into London for the second and successful attempt.

    • Thanks very much, it’s really exciting! I’d prepared myself for a two hour trip, but it was nothing like as long as that – story on the blog soon of course!
