I want to thank every one for their interesting answers to the problems with
I have the pleated toe ballet slipper that always was my favorite, but as my
feet have aged:((( , I find that I have some orthopedic problems.
On someone's advice, I thought that I'd try the Jazz shoes ( with a Foam
insole) and they fit exceptionally well - except for the 3rd position
As someone pointed out , you can train yourself NOT to close so violently
into the 3rd position , but after 15 years of skating coaches yelling to:
" close together "and then 15 years of polite encouragement from SCD
teachers, I do not think I can change.
So I will ask my DH to file off the sharpness of the heel , but I've also
ordered some Ghilles today and will get fitted for orthotics.
Heaven Forbid that I have to give up dancing just when I got back after 8
years or so.
