I have seen both of these. They are available through the media resources of the university where I teach. I am assuming that they were approved by and purchased for our department of dance.


The videos give basic shoe preparation information, pre-pointe exercises, and progress to a do-along class with both Michelle and another dancer demonstrating the techniques.

I am going to buy it. It just has been released (at least on the European market). Maybe it is already longer on the US market. Or do you mean a different DVD? I was referring to one DVD and you mentionned that you have seen both? :( What is the second one?

Could you tell me if it was published in the U.S. or the U.K. and where you saw this.


I hold a registered service mark (basically same thing as a trademark) here in the United States for To The Pointe.


Thank you. :dry:

I saw it on dancebooks.co.uk. I am not sure if it has been published in the US or just in the UK. You might want to check with dancebooks.

Just for information's sake, I see in the Trademark Office's site that your First Use in Commerce date (the earliest date referenced in your record) is December 1, 2002; however there is an earlier Ballet Alert thread on the subject requesting information on this video which is dated October 2002, so I expect the video had already been out for some time before even that, if that is helpful.

Yes, when I looked where Dance_Scholar_London said I saw that the video had been out for a while. Just the DVD was new.


I was just checking. :)

Sorry, did not realise that it was old stuff, Dancebooks presents it as brand new.
