Dear Lisa,

I purchased The Perfect Pointe Book and wanted to thank you for the foot exercises and all the tips and answers to questions in the Ballet Blog.  I also like the videos!!  You have been so much help to me and my feet.

Dear Lisa

Thank you so much for the wonderful workshops. I really loved them! I truly think they helped so much and they really made me think in a different way. I will try very hard to do the exercises and follow the book. Thanks again!

I wish I had had this book when I first started!

Hi Lisa
Going great with the course….have been doing the exercises for about 3 weeks now and really notice a difference. I feel so much stronger en pointe and my feet are getting more flexible. I haven’t got the best arches ever so have always felt I had “bad feet”. Not only have I got a better pointe but I am now actually pointing my feet correctly! I have always pointed from my toes as I have a low arch, but now I am really working on lengthening the toes and using the right muscles – its hard to correct a habit of a lifetime, but I’m working on it! I do experience a lot of pain in my achilles, especially going onto demi-pointe, but I assume this is from not lengthening my toes when pointing…
Its really great to know exactly what is going on and the correct muscles you should be working. I wish I had had this book when I first started!
Thanks for everything 🙂
