I love ballet and all that goes with it. My granddaughter, Lauren, is a ballet dancer and she hopes to dance in pointe next year. In the meantime, she borrowed a pair of dead shoes (shoes that are worn out and can no longer be used) for me to paint. I worked on two paintings and will post the other one soon, provided my computer will do its job. It has been to the Genius Bar twice and is still acting a little crazy.
This short video tells a little about pointe shoes and how important they are to the dancer.
