Calluses

I was wondering how to form calluses for modern dance and some for pointe work. I have tried going barefoot and it isn't working! My feet just peel and I am right back where I started. It makes turning difficult and uncomfortable. Is there any way I can stop the peeling?

DancingInTheRain, hello and a very delayed welcome to Ballet Talk for Dancers! I'm so sorry that we all missed your first post for over a month, and can't quite figure out how that happened. Please be assured that most posts are answered very quickly here on Ballet Talk for Dancers!

 

As for calluses that peel, I think you might need to see a Podiatrist about that. Usually they will develop over time just with continued dancing, but you can't make them come, and you might need to wear protection for modern dance. Capezio makes a thing called "Foot Undeez", which should help. :)
