Ballet Shoes

I was recently reminded that female professional ballet dancers go through at least two pairs of ballet shoes a week!

Behind Ballet, the Australian Ballet’s blog have posted a photo gallery of dancer Laura Tong preparing a pair of shoes. I didn’t realise how much work goes into the customisation of each shoe – and to think they have to do it so often!
