Events, Seminars and Fitting Trips
For over 25 years, Danceshoppe's experience & selection has been trusted in the community. Every year, we have had the honour of being asked to provide pointe shoe seminars for teachers at the RAD (Royal Academy of Dance Canada), as well as to the teachers at the Russian Ballet Society. Last year, we were at The National Ballet School to give a pointe presentation for the RAD teachers, as part of their Intensive Study Period.
Danceshoppe has had the pleasure of meeting many dancers who have gone out of their way to travel long distances to visit us. Thanks to your requests, we've also been able travel to various cities & towns across Canada for presentations and on pointe shoe fitting trips. As well, we are experienced in fitting pointe shoes via foot tracing. While it is not ideal, we have been successful in fitting dancers who cannot be fitted in person. We offer incentives to repeat customers from our trips, please contact us for more details.
Danceshoppe was honoured to be chosen as the only store where a clip of the American documentary First Position was filmed! This award winning documentary followed dancers from around the world, who were preparing to compete in the prestigious Youth America Grand Prix.
