Guest devion101 Posted August 30, 2004 Report Share Posted August 30, 2004 Hi all, I'm having difficulty with releves on one foot on pointe... I'm not sure if it's a shoe support issue or a foot strength issue (or maybe both) . I've been working very hard on strengthening my feet on pointe (lots of releves), but I always have difficulty getting from 3/4 pointe to full pointe when doing releves on one foot. I am kind of leaning towards a shoe support problem. I'm wearing Capezio Glisses, which are getting pretty soft, and the shank is pretty bendy. Is it possible that the shoe is simply too soft for my foot? I was thinking of switching to Grishko shoes (they are very popular with dancers in my area, and seem to give a nice line) - are they more supportive? Thanks! Quote Link to comment
