I’m really, really hoping that class tonight goes better for me. It’s hard to go in without the mental block and frustration looming over me from Monday. I’m looking forward to class though! I’m hoping that my pirouettes will pirouette properly, that my silly feet will relève correctly, and that my chaînés want to cooperate tonight. And please dance gods, please, let my pointe class go on without my feet feeling like they’re attached to the wrong leg. (I had to switch my pointe shoes to the opposite feet because my shoes/feet are being difficult. Surprise, surprise…).
I was looking at new ballet shoes recently too. I’ve been getting a lot of pain and discomfort on the balls of my feet when going up on relève so I’m thinking maybe I need a different/new shoe?? I found these Grishko ones that seem promising. We will see!! They are Grishko Ultimate ballet slippers? Has anyone ever heard of these or tried them? They got amazing reviews with a few people saying these helped with the pain on the balls of their feet. I’ve also never tried canvas slippers before. I’ve always had leather. I’m scared!! Any opinions out there on canvas vs. leather?? I need input!!
