This week, our incredible team of fitters and pointe shoe technologists visited one of the top ballet companies in the entire world, the famed Mariinsky Ballet (St. Petersburg, Russia).

Over 70 Ballerinas and Dancers of the 238th ballet season were fit by our in-house fitters and the very people that design pointe shoes, all led by the Founder and President of our company Mr. Nikolay Grishko himself. One of the greatest moments for the dancer is of course finding the shoe of their dreams, and we work very hard every day to make sure that everyone that is wearing Nikolay Grishko’s products is one step closer to Living Their Dreams.     

Despite the challenging times, theatre life goes on, rehearsals are underway, and the dancers are honing their skills in every ballet studio in the building. Ballet performances are presented 6 days per week at the Mariinsky Theatre, and these hardworking, incredible dancers need their feet to be healthy in properly fit shoes. Our team had spent over 9 hours to fit the wide variety of pointe shoes and ballet slippers, we presented our new models and had the greatest response not only from the dancers that have been wearing our shoes for years, but countless others that have fallen in-love with our new models.     

One of the greatest ballet companies of all time welcomed us into their home, trusted us to take care of their most precious dancers, and we are beyond proud to call them all friends.     

We share this video with you so that you too feel the atmosphere of this magnificent palace of culture filled with so much history and talent.     

Thank you @mariinsky for the warm welcome our team felt in your home.
