Can You Dance? Conventions – Pointe Shoe Fitting!

Can You Dance? Got in contact with me to offer me the amazing opportunity to have a stand at their conventions!

Their conventions run across the country and I will be doing 4 out of 8 of the regionals.

What does this mean for you guys attending?
It means, the opportunity to get a super thorough pointe shoe fitting!
A chance to meet me and ask questions and watch me fit pointe shoes, the chance to drop by to get advice regarding your current shoes, you can also book me for a future fitting at your dance school (or coming to me) and more!

I will also be selling accessories for pointe shoes, the top selling Grishko Dream Stretch Slippers, other Grishko items plus showcasing some of their wonderful dancewear!

I am the only UK stockist who stocks the widest range of Grishko models and shank strengths. So I have a HUGE variety to suit all levels of dancer. Plus I am known for problem solving. So, if you have an issue en pointe it’s pretty likely I will be able to help you!
