*Sorry, for some reason the videos are uploaded and will play on youtube, but when I paste the links into this post, they will not play. Standby and I’ll try to figure it out.*
The pointe obsession continues…
Here’s a little video showing what makes pointe shoes so comfortable. Seriously, without all of these elements, they are not comfortable. With proper alignment and spacing, I promise, pointe shoes are hardly painful at all! Pardon the mess in the background. In the middle of furniture transition.
Here’s some examples of most of the pointe work I’ve done under teacher supervision. Though already I peeked at this video and saw my ankles bowing out a bit when I was up on full pointe–oops. It is tricky to think about making up a combination and talking and being aware of the camera and also focus on technique. When I talked about the bourrees at the end, I meant to say that they are easy to do but look cool, not that they look easy. Although maybe they do, I don’t know.
Anyway, hope you all enjoy.
