The Bloch Serenade pointe shoe has a narrow heel that fits snugly and a wide platform for extra stability en pointe. This shoe has a strong shank to help support high arches and flexible feet. Ideal for Professional/Serious students.
 
The Serenade Pointe shoe has a similar shape to the Suprima and Sonata with a narrow heel and snug fit. The platform is wider and better suited to a dancer with square shaped toes. This also helps lateral balance and assists dancers who are inclined to “sickle” or fall off Pointe sideways.
 
Often a dancer with flexible feet and/or swayed back legs find that they fall forward of their Pointe shoes. The Serenade compensates this with a longer vamp and stronger shank. The available width fittings for the Serenade are b, c, d and e and require the dancer to follow the break-in technique described below.

Pointe shoes should only ever be worn after you have consulted a trained fitter. By purchasing pointe shoes online you are taking responsibility that these are the correct shoes for your needs.
 

Point Shoe Break In Technique

A little extra time needs to be taken to break in this shoe type. They are made with a hard paste and are therefore susceptible to “snapping” if treated roughly at first. Once broken correctly they have a long life span.
 
Doing barre is the best way to break in a pointe shoe. We understand however that you can’t stand at the barre with a new pair of pointe shoes and expect to do a tendu, so the shoe needs to be prepared for barre by gently softening the shank and box by hand. Concentrate on the demi-pointe area of the shank being careful not to crush the box. Then work your way up to the heel gently massaging the shank until it is at a point where tendu and releve to demi-pointe is comfortable. Softening the box is not always necessary and is left up to the individual. If softening is necessary then concentrate on gently softening the sides of the box. Lots of dancers stand on the top of the box in order to soften and widen it. We advise that standing on the box or squashing the box can permanently damage the shoe, so please do so at your own risk. If you must stand on the box, you need to concentrate the pressure on either side of the box centre. This is important because the top centre of the box is the weakest point and prone to the most damage if stood on. Once the shoes are ready for barre, 1 to 2 hours barre will be a sufficient time to shape them to your foot. At this point the shoes will be evenly softened with no weak points resulted from incorrect breaking technique.
