Pointe/Toe Shoes

Hi! It’s me again, Millicent Mouse


Welcome to my blog


This week we’re going to talk about pointe or toe shoes.


When you are old enough and strong enough, your ballet teacher may allow you to dance en pointe.

I can’t wait!  I want to dance on my toes like a prima ballerina.

Here is a picture of a lady on toe (pointe) shoes:



Doesn’t she look beautiful? 


 Here is a picture of the first ballerina to wear toe shoes when she danced:

Her name was Maria Taglioni and she lived a long, long time ago.


Here’s a video of a woman dancing on toe shoes in a competition:


I practice ballet every day so I can dance like the lady on the video some day.



Have your mom or dad print out this picture for you so you can color it:




Please come back next week.  We are going to talk about ballet barres.

  1. Prima Ballerina’s are so lovely! I especially love to see them in beautiful white classical tutus and ballet-pink pointe shoes.:)
