Wild Wednesday Dental Floss



Wild Wednesday Dental Floss

There are many hints, tips, and hacks out there for pointe shoes. In future blogs, I will cover some of them. Today I’m talking about sewing.

It is important for the ribbons and elastic on your pointe shoes to be secure and neatly done. One trick that’s been used by dancers for many decades is to abandon traditional sewing thread and instead use dental floss (unwaxed).

Dental floss is strong and durable, and when you use it on your pointe shoes you can rest assured that it isn’t going to fray or break. As an added bonus, it comes in handy little containers that are easily stored in a dance bag. Plus, you usually get more than you can use on your teeth when you make your semi-annual visits to your dentist.


From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Secret #23d:
“Sew your ribbons on with dental floss.”
