Pointe Shoes and Cyberbullying – Episode 46 FTQA

(0:15) Emma, aka “my special guest,” has danced in multiple productions of the Corpus Christi Ballet, makes purses out of Black Friday newspapers ads (and duct tape,) and once said that tap dancing was not a cool trick!

She went back and reinforced it with duct tape though so it’d be usable.

(1:22) Emma shares with me her road trip experience with Olivia (Dee,) Aunt Rose (Dee,) and Grammies to buy a new pair of pointe shoes from Dorothy’s Dance Shop in the Ventura Plaza Shopping Center in San Antonio, Texas. Here’s the story of why they made the trip.

(7:25) My question to Emma was, “What do you do when a negative comment on a text or social media upsets you?” Thank you to Mary from Corpus Christi, Texas for sending in the question.

(14:55) Emma’s question to me was, “If you were a male dancer, and you wore pointe shoes, what brand would sound most appealing to you? Bloch, Capezio, Gaynor Minden, Sansha, or Suffolk?” Listen to what I’d choose and why.

The new Blochs on Emma.
