Mabel Mae Posted June 22, 2008 Report Share Posted June 22, 2008 This is something I've been wondering for a while now. My DD is 9 and has very narrow feet. Her big toe is very, very long. The second and third toes are joined, not only with skin but also fused inside by bone. Is she every likely to be able to get on pointe? They won't start trying her until she is 12 or 13 at this dance school but I want to be prepared for the worst. Her dance teacher mentioned a liquid silicone that can be poured into the shoe and then it will mould around the foot and set helping with spreading the weight to the other toes and supporting them... is this something that is commonly used thesedays and will this be the right remedy for her? She loves her ballet and is being pushed up through the grades by the teacher as they've told me she has amazing potential but I don't want to push her if this will prove a problem for her and am making her keep up her tap and modern classes to keep her options open. Any advice gratefully received. Quote Link to comment
