A look behind the scenes in the Royal Ballet's shoe department by Judith Mackrell in The Guardian.

 

It's Latimer's job (with the help of Bob Martin, who comes in occasionally to fit Bloch shoes) not only to ensure that every dancer finds her ideal shoe, but that the stock is kept replenished. A large company such as the Royal can get through 6,000-7,000 pairs a year, depending on the choice of ballets. A principal ballerina such as Marianela Núñez, who has very strong feet and dances an exceptionally demanding repertory, wears out her shoes after just one day, the papier-mache box too pummelled for further use.

A Northern Ballet video fashion show.

 

It [Cinderella] promises to be a ravishing production, and to celebrate its launch for the festive season, we have teamed up with Northern Ballet, in particular, dancers Maria and Olivia, and with Harvey Nichols Leeds, for a very special fashion shoot, set in the wonderfully decorated surroundings of Rudding Park Hotel, near Harrogate.
