Have you ever wondered what those beautiful satin slippers really, truly had inside of them? Some people have asked me if it was wood (ouch!?), and other times people have asked if there was even metal inside. Wow.
I hope that this lovely little article dispels some of those myths and helps everyone understand just how much work the ballerina truly does as she stands on her toes. Eat your heart out, athletes. You football players have nothing on our little ballerinas!
