sylphide Posted April 19, 2004 Report Share Posted April 19, 2004 I was wondering something: Today I started to wear pointe shoes with a narrower box and I really had a hard time with my balance, sissonne....and almost all moves where I had to find my balance on one foot. Could it be that my old pairs with a wider box allowed me to "cheat" ie not really be perfectly pulled up or appear to balance without having perfect placement ? I am a bit confused and frustrated since I use to acheive pretty decent balance and pirouette on pointe. Any suggestions? (By the way, my teacher saw my feet in those pointier/lower vamp shoes and sort of forbid me to wear anything else because she said they enhanced my humble arches). Thank you (not sure if I should post this in the pointe shoe forum) Quote Link to comment
