Anonymous asked: omg how many pointe shoes do ballerinas go through???
Literally a shit ton and the number of shoes in that box would probably be quadrupled if I hadn’t switched to Gaynor Mindens which are made from plastic instead of paper mâché and stuff and last like 3 times as long 3 years ago

Anonymous asked: how do you feel about the rockettes?
no particular feelings, probably not something I’d be interested in seeing bc I’ll be honest I’m a royal snob when it comes to dance performances and I don’t doubt that what they do is amazing I’m just 99.9999% sure I wouldn’t be into it
