I had my first official ballet photo shoot today! It is for a new company Pointe People and they have a line of “Pointe Paint” for your technique and pointe shoes. They invited a few dancers to come out for their “Pointe People Paint Party!”
I had such an amazing time. Paige, the founder, is a former dancer and she knows just how difficult it is when a dancer has to color their pointe shoes. As a student at the Dance Theatre of Harlem our pointe shoes much match the color of our skin. I’m always looking for better and easier ways to color my shoes.
Today, not only did I get to try the product I also was able to shoot with Nicki Bosch, a natural light photographer. I was pretty nervous but she was extremely nice and made the shoot so much fun. I liked watching the other dancers as well. It was really like a party. I cannot wait to see the official pictures.
I edited a “Behind the Scenes” video on my YouTube channel
