  1. Hi, My teacher is a former corps de ballet dancer with Australia ballet from the 1980's and she said that for those who have JHS or EDS, it could take 3-4 years of training with regular classes. She's always correcting me in class and at first I would get kind of upset over it but my brother said that I should appreciate that she even bothers to give me feedback and it's a compliment. She also said that pointe is not suitable for everyone but she can see me going on them one day as I'm stronger than I first started. When I first started my ankles would twist whenever I'm walking which was very painful but it does not happen anymore. Do you think I have normal, low arches or rigid flat feet?
  2. I see, I have tapered toes. ☺️
  3. Hi, I mean ballet shoes/ballet slippers. I noticed some have a v-cut and a u-cut and I am not exactly sure which will make my feet look prettier. I'll like to point out I've tried bloch shoes (hated them), MDM (very hard to point my feet but good for strengthening) and Merlet (I liked these but they became damaged very easily).
  4. Hi, I'm 24. Been doing ballet for only 2 years but I mainly do contemporary dance and sports such as rhythmic gymnastics. My teacher said I have at least another year or so to go but I haven't exactly found the right ballet shoe. 😒
  5. Hello everyone, I need advice and help in terms of my feet shape and which vamp etc will be most suitable for me. I will like to point out that I have Joint Hypermobility Syndrome and although it affects my entire body, my ankles and shoulders can sometimes dislocate if I stop strengthening everything. I have attached some photos and I look forward to hearing from you all! 😘 P.S Sorry for the low quality photos but you can still see my feet. πŸ˜€ http://s557.photobucket.com/user/pixy-dust-here/slideshow/
