The Pointe Elegantia’s™
Copyright© 2018 Meeke Mutter
Meeke: “I had these old pointe shoes I didn’t want to throw away. A friend suggested to paint them and I did. I made beautiful designs bringing my dance calligraphy art onto it. It made me think. The look of the everyday pointe shoe has not changed since 1832. There is so much variation in leotards, legwarmers and skirts for the ballerina’s but there is nothing to give more flair and elegance to the everyday pointe shoe in ballet class or for a performance without having to dye the shoe. It is maybe time for a change and bring more style and art onto the pointe shoes in an easy way so dancers have more choice in general and more joy for dancing on their pointe shoes so they can forget about the often frustrating pain.
The designs I made have been developed into pointe stickers. The stickers are beautiful, artsy, colorful, dancing, durable, easy to adhere and remove (with no damage to the pointe shoe). They are called “The Pointe Elegantia’s™ stickers”. In total in 11 designs available. Each design has a positive name like Classy, Bliss, Blossom and Calmness as I want to encourage the ballerina to keep putting on their pointe shoes despite the pain. I hope the pointe stickers will give them more joy and good energy for their dancing.”
A set of two pointe Elegantia’s stickers costs $10 or 10€ exclusive shipping costs. For orders: firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. With 💕
