i feel like this would’ve looked nicer without the hair tie on my wrist.

I’m loving it though… This photo is beautiful!

“I have to admit it scares me when I see dancers doing point work without ribbons. Is this safe? I remember from my years doing point work that the ribbons helped take a lot of the pressure of your toes and helped to support your ankles.”

It’s safe*!

*for some people. Some people will need the extra ankle support that the ribbons provide, but if you have the strength and the technique, the ribbons are mostly an aesthetic element. However, if you’re dancing without ribbons, you’ll likely need more than just a loop of elastic sewn in the back; a criss-cross of wider elastic will keep the shoe on much better than a single, thin elastic.
