Pointe Shoe Pointers with Anita Rani and Pippa Moore

As part of a series of features to promote our Pointe Shoe Appeal, we invited Anita Rani, member of Northern Ballet’s Board of Directors, BBC star and former Strictly competitor, to go behind the scenes at our home on Quarry Hill, Leeds. As a self-confessed dance super-fan Anita couldn’t wait to meet Premier Dancer Pippa Moore in between rehearsals for The Little Mermaid.

Dancing with Northern Ballet for over 22 years, Pippa shared her tips and tricks for personalising pointe shoes ready for the daily demands of training, rehearsals and performances.

You can help with the preparation by supporting our Pointe Shoe Appeal today.
