The «EXAM Demi-Pointe» shoe is made especially for absolute beginners to pointework and allows a “healthier” transition from the soft ballet shoe to pointes. Please go to the “Attachments” tab to read articles about the benefits of using these shoes. These Demi Pointes were developed for RAD (Royal Academy of Dance) to aid in the preparation of the young dancer’s feet for Pointe work.  The young dancer will start to acclimate to the feeling of dancing in pointe shoes…it will feel strange to dance in shoes with a box around the forefoot.  In fact, this shoe has an extra soft box to ease the introduction while simultaneously developing the forefront and ensuring a stress-free switch to pointework.

It should also be stressed that these shoes do not have a shank so it will not be possible to go onto pointe.  The next step will be the “Alice” pointe shoe where the young dancer will be able to get en pointe….The purpose of these shoes is to provide the introductory first step to pointework by strengthening and preparing the young dancer’s feet and ankles.
