Pointe Shoe Fittings Now Available at Studio Dancewear
Jan 2020

Following on from two Pointe Shoe Fitting Courses in London, held by the wonderful Amanda Hill, I am delighted to say Studio Dancewear now offers a full Pointe Shoe Fitting service, for complete beginners to advanced levels. Fittings are offered by appointment only in order to give the best service possible. Following on from literally years of classes and practicing, it is a very exciting time in the life of a young girl, (generally girls but boys can also wear pointes,) to finally get the go- ahead from their teacher to have a pointe shoe fitting. I have attended courses run by Amanda Hill, of Ballet Pro, who taught a very in depth and intensive course firstly with Grishko shoes but more recently with R-Class, the shoes I now stock. I am also lucky to have the background as a fully qualified and experienced ballet teacher. So, what happens when you make contact with Studio Dancewear to make an enquiry about Ppinte Shoe Fittings? Well, there are a number of questions that I will ask, you may feel they are personal, but I can absolutely guarantee that they are necessary questions. Following on from that conversation, an appointment may be offered. You will then be sent, via email, a short introduction of what you need on the day, what to expect on the day and what to wear in order to have the best chance of a correct fitting. It is also important to remember that not all girls who come for a fitting will walk away with a pair of Pointe Shoes. In some cases, it may be necessary to come bak on another day for a variety of reason which will be discussed at your appointment, but I can promise that every effort will be made to ensue that you will be fitted and walk out the door with your new pair of shoes. Fitting Pointe shoes is a very important and crucial part of a dancers life, it is something that I have always wanted as part of Studio Dancewear and I am beyond delighted to be offering the service. From a google search, I am one of the only dance stores outside of Dublin to do so. It is of upmost importance to me that it is done correctly, not rushed and I will not allow any student to leave with a par of Pointe Shoes unless I am 100% happy and confident with the fit. Selling for selling sake is NOT an option to me. So, if you are interested in making an appointment, please contact me on (087) 2200131, contact me through the contact page here or send me an email  studiodancewear@icloud.com
