Fun Friday Long Toes

Fun Friday Long Toes

Consider your toes. Seriously. Think about how important they are and how much they do for you. For instance, they push you off the floor, they cushion your landings, they extend your line, etc., etc. They are not just important - they are critical to successful technique.

And the most important thing to think about regarding your toes is this: you always elongate them. You never curl or clench them. Whether on the floor on in the air, the toes should be extended.

This goes for pointe work too. If your toes are curled inside your shoes you need a different size.

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Ballet Secret #4bb:
“Always lengthen your toes.”
