What do you guys mean with "breaking in" pointes? My teacher told me I should just work them in with a lot relevés and pliés on relevé.

Anastasia - "breaking in" means "preparing" the shoes by softening them up or sewing on the ribbons, etc. Each dancer has a different way to do it. <P>What your teacher is telling you is right - if it works for you - then it is the right thing to do.<P>Here is a link to a thread where you can read what people have said:<P><A HREF=../../../ubb/Forum7/HTML/000253.html>HOW DO YOU PREPARE YOUR POINTE SHOES?</A><P>
