  1. Thank you all for your advice and ideas - some things to work on!
  2. She’s had a pointe shoe fitting not that long ago and got a couple of different styles of shoes. She does have on all the spacers etc on when fitting. Im wondering if she got them wide enough. I think the dance physio may be the first step but I’m wondering does anyone on the forum know anyone who’s continued to dance successfully after a bunion operation?
  3. Hi, yes she does wear toe spacers. I think part of the problem is that she has reasonably flat feet so always prone to rolling in. She had arch supports in her normal shoes through secondary school. Fiz - did your daughter get assessed by a dance physio before deciding to go for the op? Do you think that would be the first step? Just worried that doctors/hospitals may not be sympathetic towards dancers!
  4. Hi, looking for advice regarding bunions in dancers. My daughters is at vocational school and her bunions are now hurting so she is reluctant to do pointe work. We were wondering if anyone out there has had an operation to correct them and if they were able to dance professionally afterwards. She does not want a career in ballet but more contemporary, jazz or cruise work ( thinking high heels). If she were to get an operation she would probably take a year out and then go back to complete her third year. Any advice or potential solutions welcome.
  5. If you applied early some of the applications weren't received because of a fault with their email system - there was a note on their website about it. Give them a ring and they will check whether your application arrived. Like us, you may have to re-send.
