en pointe

Ballerinas. Whimsical, delicate and beautiful.

I’ve been dreaming about ballerinas and pointe shoes lately. It reminds me of a childhood dream I once had, a little girl excitedly putting on her ballet shoes and pink tutu for performances. Loving the air of elegance, she pursued ballet with her eyes on the prize: the pointe shoes.

After what seemed to be an eternity, it was time to try on those pointe shoes. Sure, they hurt like hell. But the pain is nothing in comparison to the beaming smile of a little girl who thought she has just joined the higher ranks; a serious ballerina who can do magic tricks with her feet! Oh, the power of en pointe.
