calamitous Posted January 16, 2005 Report Share Posted January 16, 2005 This may be in the wrong place or answered elsewhere, so please redirect if necessary. I have read and heard about not having the dancers' feet and I am wondering what this means. My dd is African-American and has what look to me very flat feet, but she has never been told this is a problem. She spent several early years in her life running around barefoot 24/7 in Africa and her feet are tough as nails. She never gets blisters, much to the chagrin of her pointe peers and has no trouble finding dance/pointe shoes. Her teachers says her feet look beautiful in her pointe shoes and used her as a demonstration of a perfect fit. The only thing I notice about her feet other than they seem to me to have no arch, is like the rest of her they are all limb, her toes begin to rival my fingers in length- well not really but they are very long. So I am wondering what dancers' feet are and if it is anatmical or positioning? Thanks for any help HM Quote Link to comment
