Group Pointe Events at Allegro
We love doing events at Allegro! After hours events give us the opportunity to spend uninterrupted time with groups of excited and dedicated pointe dancers, which we really enjoy. During these events, dancers get fit by one of our professional pointe fitters, with the opportunity to try on a large variety of pointe shoe brands and styles. It is very important to us to find the right fit for every dancer.
Dancers who attended after hours events also participate in an educational workshop. We offer two different workshops- one for new pointe dancers and one for experienced pointe dancers. Our workshop for new pointe dancers includes topics such as: sewing, accessories, pointe shoe anatomy, the lifetime of pointe shoes, and more! The workshop for experienced pointe dancers includes topics such as: jet glueing, darning, varying sewing techniques, ¾ shanking, and more! These workshops can also be crafted around the interests and preferences of each group of dancers.
Event participants also enjoy refreshments and extra discounts on non-pointe related items! Allegro wants to celebrate your hard work!
