Find of the Week



Here's the featured dance supply item for this week:
Body Wrappers® Pointe Shoe Ruffer


I absolutely LOVE mine! I use it almost every day and it really comes in handy for shows. The purpose of this nifty little tool is too roughen up the soles of your pointe shoes to make them less slippery. It's utterly amazing! You can use it with any brand of pointe shoes (with the exception of Gaynor Mindens). I wear Russian Pointes and it works fabulously. You can find the Pointe Shoe Ruffer on Discount Dance Supply(http://www.discountdance.com/frame_set.php3?mf=/search.php) and be sure to look for it at your local dance store.
I'm serious, this thing is awesome! :)

  1. Ok, so im 15 years old and a ballet dancer. so during the summer intensive i noticed that it was starting to get extremly hard to breath after doing just the simple barre work. so i told my mum and we went to the doctor and found out that i have athletic asthma. i have never heard of professional dancers who have asthma. I have always been really haelthy, i weigh 90 Ilbs, 5'5. so i dont understand how i could have gotten asthma. Anything you could post on dancers with asthma would be greatly appreciated

  4. Hahaha! Hmm... that would probably actually work! :P
    There are even some dancers who use cheese graters to rough up their point shoes!
