|(yes that is my foot)|
I'm sure you'll agree they are rather amazing.
A couple of months ago I got my first pair of pointe shoes (not red, but it was still super exciting).
|Also my feet... in 4th|
3 things I've learned while en pointe
- Pointe shoes aren't excruciating, more pressure than anything.
- Pointe shoes are like avocados. Too hard, too hard. perfect! eh too soft...
- OMG the core workout from stabilising myself in the center.
I did ballet for a bit as a kid (but had my lessons stopped) and only took it up as an adult because I was researching for In The Spotlight which has a ballet dancer hero.
Next year I'll be doing an exam because it's always good to have goals.
What hobby do you have that is something no one would expect?
