At the San Francisco Ballet, our shoes were always carefully organized in the storeroom by alphabetical order. At one point, however, the “L’s” must have intermingled with the “J’s” because THIS is what just turned up during spring cleaning.
Somehow, I got ballerina Tina LeBlanc’s pointe shoe!
Of course I had to try it on. Fishnets and all!
Looks fine to me! Don’t need those toes anyway.
Below is a photo of both of our shoes. Can you guess which one is Tina’s?
A former Principal Dancer with the Joffrey Ballet and the San Francisco Ballet, Tina LeBlanc is on the faculty of the San Francisco Ballet School. More about this celebrated dancer can be found here.
