Give the girl the right pair of shoes and she’ll conquer the world. -Marilyn Monroe
Hey guys! Today, I wanted to share with you something that I need your help with. I get asked all the time by friends of mine and friends of my family on how they can support my dance career non-financially. For a while, that was difficult to answer because the truth is, dance is not cheap. From pointe shoes to tuition to private lessons to dance wear and more, people can spend up to thousands of dollars a month. Yes, a month. However, I found a great way for you all to help me out.
RUSSIAN POINTE AMBASSADOR
Every year, a dancer can spend up to anywhere between 1-3,000+ dollars a year on pointe shoes, depending on how strong and flexible your feet are, and how often you dance. This is on top of how much we spend on tuition, dance wear, and other fees. As I said, dance is expensive.
Most pointe shoe and dance wear companies & manufacturers sponsor and support dancers by giving them a position as an ambassador. The job of the ambassador is to promote the company’s merchandise (leotards, tights, shoes, etc.) and in return (depending on the company), they get free merchandise for a certain amount of time.
WHY I LOVE RUSSIAN POINTE
Since January, I went back and forth between Grishko and Russian Pointe. One of my teachers didn’t like the Grishko brand on my feet. So I decided to continue with Russian Pointe. I found that they are extremely comfortable and fit very well. My foot size is a bit awkward, but Russian Pointe is amazing. Not to mention they are much harder shoes and last much longer. They make my feet look beautiful and I am in love with the brand.
