Over 3 years of podcasting, pointe shoes have never been discussed in depth on Pas de Chát. But all of that changes this week, as we collaborate with and interview New York City's premier pointe shoe fitter and Youtuber, Mary Carpenter (dancewithmarynyc). Listen in for a history lesson in pointe shoes, what to expect in a fitting, discussion of brands, and an all-around good conversation.
