On Pointe

Did you ever dream of being a ballerina? Was ‘plié and up’ the the furthest you got? Well, it was for me. I bailed out of ballet in the 2nd grade.

Did you ever dream of being a ballerina? Was ‘plié and up’ the the furthest you got? Well, it was for me. I bailed out of ballet in the 2nd grade. I did convince my mom to buy me ballet flats instead of the regular green and white Adidas I normally wore.

For those of us who never made it to dancing sur les pointes, Sonny Vandevelde captured the  Junko Shimada show where the most unusual ballet heels, not quite ballet boots or ballet flats, these are a bit more forgiving with plexi heels and a platform. On the models, they certainly give the illusion of dancing sur les pointes… without ALL the foot damage.
