What is the Progressive Pointe Method?

Progressive Pointe Method (PPM) is a holistic fitting method that prioritizes a dancer’s individual strengths, habits, injuries and skill level.
Traditional fitting methods prioritize the shape and size of the dancer’s feet rather than on the impact that each pointe shoe component has on their dancing abilities. PPM is therefore a dynamic process that follows and changes along with the dancer as well as a collaborative part of a dancer’s medical journey. PPM covers basic foot anatomy, pointe shoe shapes and sizing across all major brands, and how to use this knowledge for pointe shoe fitting and injury prevention.
The PPM curriculum is constantly being updated with recently released pointe shoe models and community fitting knowledge, as well as what we have learned from our collaboration with the medical industry.
