  1. Will you pls make a short video to show how to properly sew the inside of sides and the back of the pointe shoes to make it snug fit perfectly without any bagging issue?! Thank you :)

  2. do you know of any brands of pointe shoes that I can get that are really strong in the shank that are not Russian pointes I keep getting fitted but i can never find a strong enough pair that will last and they are not cheap so it gets hard for my parents to be able to afford to get me more when the shank gets worn out which is after 10 to 15 times of being worn

  3. can you maybe please make a dance bag organization video I have been struggling on how to keep my pointe shoe stuff organized in my dance bag for ballet

  4. Thanks for all these great tips, Katie. I always love seeing how other dancers sew and break in their pointe shoes. One thing I tend to have trouble with is noisy shoes. Do you have any tips on how to de-noise them? Yours are always so quiet and lovely. Thanks!

  5. Hello Katie!! I really hope you see this, I really love your videos, and it would mean a lot if you could help me. I have extremely winged feet, extremely flexible, anything on pointe is really hard. I have no problem with balancing on half pointe, but pointe is really hard. Any tips?

  6. don't sew them like this it doesn't work also if you need to break them and step on them to get over the Box more you should consider buying a different kind don't step on the vamp it gives you a lot less support to

  7. your videos are really helpful because I'm starting pointe in like a week or two and I'm looking on websites for strengthening exercises watching a few of your videos and some of live on pointe anyway so far I'm finding everything really helpful so thank! xx

  8. My #1 pet peeve about pointe shoes is how much NOISE they make onstage. I'm trying to be in this magical performance experience and KLUNK KLUNK KLUNK is just not helping me at all. What do you do to make your shoes quiet? I hate noisy pointe shoes!

  9. I just wanted to say thank you because I just started pointe and getting it all read was very confusing. But this video made it much more simple and less stressful, and you gave me inspiration to start my own channel, so I did!! I mad it for my journey in dance! Super excited to perform on pointe!!????

  10. Thank you for your ballet videos. The ballet world is really fascinating. I enjoy the ballet classes and rehearsals than to watch the final product.

    You are really a beautiful girl and I am happy for you that you are back to professional ballet.

    Keep on doing videos. They have been very useful to me. Again thanks.
