    Should Use Bloch Pointe Shoes Break-In Technique A:

    A little extra time needs to be taken to break in these shoe types. They are made with a harder paste and are therefore susceptible to snapping if treated roughly at first. Once broken-in correctly, they have a long life span.

    Doing barre is the best way to break in a pointe shoe. We understand however that you can't stand at the barre with a new pair of pointe shoes and expect to do a tendu, so the shoe needs to be prepared for barre by gently softening the shank and box by hand. Concentrate on the demi-pointe area of the shank, being careful not to crush the box. Then work your way up to the heel, gently massaging the shank until it is at a point where tendu and relevé to demi-pointe is comfortable.

    Softening the box is not always necessary, and is left up to the individual dancer. If softening is necessary, then concentrate on gently softening the sides of the box. Lots of dancers stand on the top of the box in order to soften and widen it. We advise that if you stand on the box, you need to concentrate the pressure on either side of the box centre. This is important because the top centre of the box is the weakest point and prone to damage if stood on.

    Once the shoes are ready for barre, 1 to 3 barres will be a sufficient time to shape them to your foot. At this point the shoes will be evenly softened with no weak points resulting from an incorrect breaking-in technique.




    Fold your ballet pointe shoes up properly after each class or rehearsal, winding the ribbons around each shoe.

    Take the Pointe shoes out of your dance bag as soon as you get home, don't forget! (Important) Place the shoes somewhere so that they can dry out, but not in the oven. Yes, it has been known to put Pointe shoes in the oven to dry.

    Drying the shoes allows the glue inside the shoes to harden again. You didn't know that there is glue inside the ballet pointe shoes? That is the technical aspect of what and how the shoes are made. If you can, purchase two pair at a time. Rotate wearing them. The ballet pointe shoes will last longer as the glue in the shoes harden after each time your child wears them in class or rehearsal.

    DO NOT﹗﹗﹗

    1)Wear ballet point shoes outside on the street or get them wet.

    2)Dry shoes in an oven (already mentioned) or in a microwave, unless you want to have cooked, baked or roasted shoes for a snack.

    3)Burn fraying ends of ribbons with a match or lighter.

    4)Use any kind of chemicals to clean the pointe shoes and/or ribbons, or elastics.
