Noisy couru en pointe


Recommended Posts

Basically what the title says - my couru en pointe seems to be quite loud... I don't know if this is the shoe or my technique but I am wondering how I can get rid of the noise?

Thanks in advance :happy:

If your shoes are new the movement will be quite loud. I liken it to furiously typing!

Welcome to Ballet Talk for Dancers, pointe_shoe!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


As Miss vrsfanatic said- they will become less loud as you work in them.

I have had them for a while now and I am already planning to get new ones soon! They are quite soft but they still make the noise!

Ah! Then it becomes an articulation matter. As the feet leave the floor they should go through flat or flexed if we are en plié, to 1/4 pointe, 1/2pointe, 3/4pointe, and finally full pointe. The process reverses when landing from a jump, or any time we take a step. If you continue to work on articulation your shoes should get quieter. If they don't, then you're not doing lift-off properly.

No banging shoes on the floor unless they are to be worn immediately after in performance. :wink: Young dancers need to work on articulation and need to learn how to make the shoes quiet using their technique :thumbsup: Plus, banging them wears the platform, pleat area, and block out significantly faster, meaning you will be going through shoes too fast.
