If anyone wears the following pointe shoes, co…

I have 4 pairs of the Capezio Glisse Pro 9.5 WW special ordered with the Extra Strength Shank

And 3 pairs of Gaynor Minden
9.5M/4-121-33

(Extra-flex Shank, Sleek Heel and Sleek Vamp)

All unused! Message me. I’ll cut you a HUGE deal considering Capezio shoes retail around 80$ and Gaynors at 130$

I’m trying to get them to a home where they can be worn instead of trashing them. It’s almost 1,000$ of shoes!

John Lowe, age 91, took up ballet at age 79.

Grandfather to 11, John Lowe, of Witchford, Cambs, took up dancing having watched his daughter Alison become a professional dancer. The retired teacher said: “It’s a wonderful thing to do and I can’t understand why more men don’t do it.”

Pirouettes have been perfected in daily practice at home ahead of Mr Lowe’s performance in Prokofiev’s The Stone Flower at The Maltings.

“I went to a dance school in the high street in Ely and asked if I could do tap and ballet and they said ‘well of course you can’ and I’ve been doing it ever since,” Mr Lowe said.

“I’ve got a rope at home that I use to pull my leg up higher. I’m lucky that I don’t have any problem with the routines but that’s because I exercise.

"There’s nothing effeminate about it – you have to be incredibly fit to dance.
