Well, that’s right, I have sore feet! If you have been reading my blog for a while you might know that I got ballet pointe shoes a few weeks ago.
We are only allowed to do pointe work once a week for a start. I had three lessons on pointe so far and after class on Monday my feet was a little sore, but nothing to bad. On Tuesday morning I found out that my right foot was a bit blue just at my big toe!
Here is what it looked like! It’s purple-blue!
I also discovered later the morning that my left foot was sore too when doing a rise. I was a little worried, because I had class that Tuesday afternoon at four.
So my dad gave me DMSO spray and CMO cream to put on (My dad’s a Naturopath). I put it on three times during that day and by the afternoon it was much better. But as I went through the class the pain got worse again. I was unable to do “Releve” and “Pirouettes”, because of the pain in the side of my left foot.
When I got home, I treated myself with the “Rikta Cold Laser”, put some more DMSO and CMO on and went to bed.
On Wednesday morning the pain was gone! I’m SO glad I have a great dad that know how to treat my sore foot! Because it was really sore.
I think I hurt my foot by trying to do “Demi Pointe” with my pointe shoes:
Haha, this is not easy at all!
Or maybe not jumping right on to my block, but a bit skew.
Well ballet isn’t easy, but is a LOT of fun! I still enjoy working on my points a lot and it’s one of the best events in my week!
Now since we are talking about pointe shoes.....
Does anyone know where this classic pictures had their origin? I know lot of ballet schools have pointe shoes hanging like this on the wall; as their logo; at the door; in a ballet movie or a book.
Well I just happen to find out! (Well I think so! Lol!)
You know, when you get pointe shoes they normally come in a bag like this one:
I really like this bag, but my ballet teacher recommend when you get home you must take them out of the bag and hang them up. Your feet perspire and that makes your shoes soft, TOO FAST! Then you have to buy new ones within a month or so!
So that is where I think the picture of pointe shoes hanging came from.You have to hang them in fresh air, where it’s open! So they last longer.
Now my pointe shoes is also hanging, from my curtain rail! I’m going to ask my dad to fit me a special peg in the wall to hang them on, but for now they will hang from my curtain rails!
I hope you liked the pictures!
Till next time:
