BEHIND THE SCENES // Each year, New York City Ballet dancers go through over 12,000 pointe shoes, which are stored downstairs at the David H. Koch Theater. To keep organized, NYCB’s Berry Toe Shoe Room Supervisor Linnette Roe conducts an annual inventory during the summer.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ “It is a big reset button not just for understanding the inventory, but for getting organized and getting all the Company ladies alphabetically into the big cabinets,” she says.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ This year our Shoe Room currently contains 5,218 pointe shoes, with more on the way for every principal, soloist, corps member, and apprentice.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ @linnetteintransit @freedoflondon #freed #pointe #pointeshoes #toeshoes #shoes #ballet #dance #ballerina #nycb #nycballet #newyorkcityballet

BEHIND THE SCENES // Although our theater is empty for the summer, our Berry Toe Shoe Room Supervisor Linnette Roe is hard at work preparing for the upcoming season. We caught up with her during her annual inventory, where one of her big tasks is organizing pointe shoes for both veteran and new dancers.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ While NYCB dancers get their own custom Freed pointe shoes, apprentices and first year corps de ballet members wear stock Freeds, like what dancers get fitted for at a local store.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Once apprentices find out they’ve gotten their Company contracts as corps de ballet members, Linnette is the second person they call — after their parents, of course — to get fitted. However, it can be a waiting game because custom shoes take a year or more to arrive. Even then, it can take a long time to find exactly what fit, model, and maker is right for them, and certain makers can take over a year and a half to fill orders.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ “Sometimes it takes all the way to second year corps before we finally started to get what we think they are going to wear,” Linnette explains.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ @linnetteintransit @freedoflondon #freed #pointe #pointeshoes #toeshoes #shoes #ballet #dance #ballerina #nycb #nycballet #newyorkcityballet

BEHIND THE SCENES // New York City Ballet runs on pointe shoes, and one brand in particular: Freed of London. Dancers often begin their training at the School of American Ballet wearing Freed. However, not all pointe shoes are alike, and once a Company member reaches their second year in the corps de ballet, they're able to get customized shoes from one of Freed’s 26 makers who specialize in made-to-order, non-stock pointe shoes.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ But when a maker retires and dancers have to find a new custom maker, it can be a frenzied, difficult process, since every foot, preference, and maker’s style is unique. Dancers also have to take into account that it takes months, if not years, to get their specialized orders, and some makers don't take on new dancers. In fact, only 14 of the 26 Freed makers are open to new orders.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ “It’s hard to switch makers,” explains Linnette Roe, New York City Ballet’s Berry Toe Shoe Room Supervisor. “It’s like if you spent your whole life in sneakers and suddenly you switched to espadrilles, you’d be like ‘wow, that’s not what I’m used to.’ It’s that big of a difference.”⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ @linnetteintransit @freedoflondon #freed #pointe #pointeshoes #toeshoes #shoes #ballet #dance #ballerina #nycb #nycballet #newyorkcityballet

DID YOU KNOW? // Being a New York City Ballet dancer typically starts at the School of American Ballet, where the vast majority of our Company members have trained to become the kind of dancers capable of tackling our demanding repertory. Once in the Company, they take company class, rehearse, and perform most days during the performance season.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ But they’re not the only ones who make NYCB tick.

19/20 SEASON HIGHLIGHTS // George Balanchine once observed how the best dancers infuse ballet choreography with a specific poetry that moves beyond the technical foundation of the art form and infuses it with meaning.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ With that in mind, we're immensely excited to launch our new season, which finds our dancers evoking poetry throughout the 19/20 season. Single tickets are now on sale to see classic ballets by Balanchine, Robbins, Wheeldon, and more, alongside newer works by Lauren Lovette, Edwaard Liang, Justin Peck, and many others.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Get your tickets now with our #linkinbio.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ #poetsofgesture #newseason #ballet #dance #georgebalanchine #balanchine #nycb #nycballet #newyorkcityballet

19/20 SEASON HIGHLIGHTS // Bringing ballet to life involves an intrinsic understanding of the count, steps, and timing, but George Balanchine knew an equally important component was the meaning that comes across through each dancer's movement. It's why he once described ballet dancers as "poets of gesture." ⁠⠀ Taking his observation to heart, we officially launch our new season, which finds our dancers evoking poetry through an array of classic and premiere programs.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Single tickets are now on sale.
