Master Pointe Shoe Fitter – UK Based & Beyond!
Welcome to Straight To The Pointe!
I’m Leanne, an official UK Grishko Stockist and also a Mobile Pointe Shoe Fitter.

I have even done fittings abroad!
Pointe shoe fittings are also available from my fitting room in Essex.
I work 7 days a week including evenings.
I have also done the Grishko pointe shoe fitting course.

I fit pointe shoes for all dancers. From absolute newcomers to pointe work, dance students in full time training, right up to professional.
I can also help with any problems a dancer may be having and also with custom order pointe shoes (also known as special order pointe shoes).
I’m a dancer myself and still take ballet class. I studied the B.A.T.D syllabus.
I also take classes at other schools in London and beyond.
I stock Grishko pointe shoes only. This is due to the fact I have tried pretty much every brand out there and feel Grishko to be far superior.
Grishko pointe shoes tend to last longer and support the feet to a high degree.
They are suited to a wide variety of foot types and there are so many options to choose from!
The brand itself has MANY variations to suit all feet and strengths. So many box shapes, profile heights, variations in wings, pastes, shanks, side quarters, heel heights, satins and many more!
I stock the widest range of Grishko pointe shoe models and strengths in the entire UK!
I also produce helpful videos about ballet, pointe shoes, dance wear reviews and much more over at:

My goal is to help as many dancers as I can in getting the right pointe shoes for them (and soft shoes!)
More background information about me…
I started dance when I was 6 years old. ISTD jazz, modern and the likes.
I did my exams but when I hit 13 I stopped due to injury and lack of time.
Ballet was something I always wanted to do but because I did so many things as a child/teen I just didn’t have the time to dedicate and also thought it might be too late to start.
It wasn’t until in my adult years that I finally found out that adults can actually start ballet! My first lessons were rather daunting but I became instantly addicted.
I then found a school perfect for me and a teacher with such incredible enthusiasium and the right amount of push to make me able to gain the confidence required to then start my exams! I had no idea it would be possible for me to even do Grade 1 let alone go on to do my other grades 🙂
I studied B.A.T.D (British Association Of Teachers Of Dancing) ballet syllabus and take other classes in and around Essex and London (and even abroad!)
I’m a professional, qualified make-up artist and I also model.
