Ballet Talk for Dancers

Friend wants to start but told no because of 'big feet' ?


Recommended Posts

Hi, so recently my friend has confessed to me that she wants to start ballet and has in fact wanted to for an extremely long time (since she was a small child, she is now 15) but she says that when she first went to try it when she was younger, there weren't any ballet slippers that would fit her feet.


I think this is due to the fact that she has an abnormally large toe on one of her feet from birth, however I don't want just this fact to stop her from being able to experience the joys of dance.


Does anyone know of any solutions to this problem or know of anywhere where she may be able to order custom ballet flats?


Thank you

What size is her US street shoe?

She would wear a Sansha ballet shoe probably size 11 or 12, which can be ordered from:



I have several students who wear a US size 10, and they have also been able to find pointes.
