Fun Friday Socks

Fun Friday Socks

One dance company I performed with required all dancers to wear socks over their dance shoes when walking from the dressing rooms to the stage. This policy was strictly enforced.

The goal was to prevent any slippery substances – particularly floor wax – from being tracked onto the stage where it could become hazardous. It also kept the shoes free of other dirt and grime that could also pose problems.

Not all companies had this policy but I always wore socks over my shoes. I simply removed them in the wings and replaced them before I went back to the dressing room. Nowadays I’d recommend socks with non-skid bottoms for this purpose, for obvious reasons.

Sock it to me!

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Ballet Secret #21eee:
“Wear socks over your pointe shoes to keep them clean.”
