As a teacher, we have a duty to take care of our dancers. As parents of dancers taking pointe, you must be willing to be aware that your child may need multiple pairs of pointe shoes throughout the year. You must not force your child to wear the same pair all year as their foot grows. If you do, your child could seriously injure their feet! Dancing en pointe is dangerous unless you do it right, and you cannot do it right with a pair of pointe shoes that do not fit. It is our policy that we have the right to take your child out of pointe shoes until proper fitting shoes are purchased.

Standing on pointe, the foot supports the entire body, and the entire weight of the body. Therefore, it is vital that toes can be stretched, and all muscles and structures of the foot sit correctly. Too tight shoes mean buckled toes, constricted blood flow to the foot and cramped muscles. In worst case scenarios, stress fractures or major muscular injuries. You do not want your child standing up with their entire body over buckled toes or toes twisted over each other. The foot has many small bones. Squashing the foot can lead to permanent damage as they are wedged together, or toes forced to overlap and twist and buckle.
