Shoe Fittings and Pointe Shoe Fittings:
The fit of a dance shoe is very important as it is a tool for the study and practice of movement. The Hip Joint specializes in professional fittings from our experienced staff.
Please call ahead for pointe shoe fitting appointments: 434-971-6888
Pointe shoes are handmade and, therefore, no two shoes are alike. The fit of a pointe shoe must be precise, and due to variables in shoe construction, we estimate about 30-60 minutes for first time fittings. You will receive one-on-one attention, complete instructions and a tutorial. Fitting is free with the purchase of pointe shoes, $30 without shoe purchase.
The Hip Joint has a “Pointe Shoe Club”. Member’s shoe style, size and special needs are kept on file to assist future fittings. Every member’s tenth pair of pointe shoes is FREE. Perfect for serious ballet dancers!
Community Dance Board:
The Hip Joint posts classes, workshops and events for theater and dance in the Charlottesville area. If you are looking for information or want to post information, please come in and check out our Community Dance Board!
