At Dancers Box we provide a friendly, professional pointe shoe fitting service.
We provide our full attention to detail on every pointe shoe fitting, as it important to every dancer to not just understand but to know how it should feel.
Both Victoria Louise & Allison have been professionally trained by leading dance brands:
Ballet Pro, Bloch & Capezio
Before you book your first pointe shoe fitting please ensure that you have been given permission from your ballet teacher to progress onto pointe.
If our staff does not think you are ready then we will refuse to fit you, but we would be more than happy to give you advice and tips on strengthening your intrinsic muscles in your feet. These muscles are very important to dancers as they hold the foot in the pointed position which in time will prepare you for pointe work.
If you have any injuries please consult with your dance teacher or doctor.
Any cuts or verrucas please allow a week before booking your fitting to allow time to heal, as this may affect the fitting.
If this is your first pointe shoe fitting you will not to bring anything with you – just yourself!
If this is your second or third pointe shoe fitting, then please bring your most recent pair of pointes and your toe pads with you so that we can compare at the end of your fitting.
We will provide you with clean socks for the fitting, but ensure that your toe nails are clipped the night before as this will dramatically affect how the fitting will go.
Also to wear appropriate clothing, no skirts or inappropriate clothes as we will be quite close to you during the fitting and we may also take photos during the fitting. (We will ask your permission before doing so.)
If you have any queries call or email us:

Very helpful and friendly staff. Pointe shoe fitting was extremely professional. I will definitely be back.
My daughter needed new pointe shoes, i saw that dancers box offered professional fitting for pointe shoes which most shops or the internet do not offer. I’m glad I did because my daughter kept getting niggly problems with her feet and since the new shoes they have totally gone. Thanks so much for all your help.
My daughter has just been fitted for her first pair of pointe shoes and even though we didnt make an appointment the staff were very accomodating. The member of staff whom fitted my daughters shoes was very knowledgeable and spent her time making sure the shoes fitted perfectly. She was very helpful giving my daughters extra tips and exercises to help her. The staff went beyond their call of duty and I would recommend any parent to take their daughters here to be fitted too.
Thank you for fitting Lucie’s second pair of pointe shoes – she tried on so many!! You were attentive and very patient but she got the perfect pair in the end. Great service.
Lovely helpful staff who took lots of time to correctly fit my daughters first pointe shoes. We will definitely be returning soon!
