The original post was by Geoffrey Kimbrough, to wit:
You would be amazed at how difficult it is to find ballerina polish these days. Nobody keeps it in stock anymore, and special-ordering it takes simply forever. They used to have it at SAB, but they've obviously run out recently. The Russian stockpiles are long-since depleted, and nobody seems to have a corner on the market, and the street-price of ballerina polish is skyrocketing. This explains why recent performances of even the world's best companies have seemed a little, well, tarnished. What to do?
To which I replied (edited slightly to update):
Dear Mr. Kimbrough:
We understand you are looking for ballerina polish. VVV Enterprises, Inc., Ltd. have long been fine purveyors of several products which may fill your needs. These polishes are usually quite expensive, but, now that the current state of depletion has been brought to our attention, we just may be
able to supply bulk quantities and ease the shortage. Check your local Wal-Mart in early December.
Among the products Triple Vee offers are the following:
Epaule and Epaule-Plus.
Epaule is for the shoulders, while Epaule-plus (a slightly more pricey polish) will bring the head and neck into alignment, add expressiveness, AND insure epaulement.
Wipes that silly grin off the face and replaces it with a serene smile of classical repose.
Insures that pyrotechnics are harnessed and deployed in service of the choreography and the music.
Best used in connection with
Causes a tingling in the arms to remind the dancer that he or she possesses arms AND helps harmonize the upper limbs with the rest of the body.
Is this what you had in mind?
All of our polishes are suitable to both male and female dancers and can be tailor made to match your stylistic preferences. (An a la Russe line is in the planning stages.)
We're always looking for new polishes (not to mention new markets to target). Any suggestions?

And of course, it would be nice to have a large stock of Antiguillem, to keep legs from jerking up at regular intervals.
