I am a former ballerina with the New York City Ballet. When I was a young student, I was always looking for insights into the ballet world and how to improve my dancing as well as beauty and lifestyle tips. Now that I am a professional, it is my turn to share.

  1. Do you have any suggestions for getting blisters and cuts to stop bleeding? I ask because during nutcracker I got a cut on my heel that would break open every time I had pointe shoes on and they kept bleeding through bandaids and my tights on stage.

  2. Thanks for your video Kathryn! I was wondering is it possible for you to put up the main point in caption form? I am a visual learner and it would be so helpful for me to copy them down in my ballet notebook.

  3. Thank you for these great tips. Do you know what I can do to get my point shoes harder? I have brought very soft ones because they fit ver good. But I don't want the shank to be to soft after wearing it twice. What can I do? Please help me!

  4. you can also use clear nail polish for the broken tights! It works! I use this hack when my tights rip a little and my mom also uses this hack too in fact! 😉 RECOMENDED!!

  5. Hey Katie, I was wondering if you could give me some tips on muscular tcula: how to help them heel fast, and how to work through them and you know, anything you can think of will help. Thank you very much.

  6. Hi Kathryn! I really like watching your ballet videos. I know you are working with boys ballet programs and have danced with many male partners. Could you do a post with one of them on techniques and tips for boys starting in ballet? That would be awesome and I'd love to meet you one day!

  7. Hey! I love your videos and I wanted to ask a question. In June I am going to New York with dancers in our studio company. We may be taking classes at Joffrey and are taking classes in professional environments. Do you have any tips for preparing for this trip? (Like how to feel ready and confident?)

  8. Hello! At my studio this year we are doing Copalliea! My dance teacher wants the lead to do Italian fuettes and additions are soon but I can't seem to master them! Naturally I want a good part if not the lead but to do that I must improve on those turns… Do you think you could do a video on them? P.S. Sorry if I spelt some terms wrong and I'm a huge fan!

  9. Wonderful tips! 🙂 Another hack I always do is, if the stage is a particularly slippery one and I'm performing in flat shoes, I spray the bottom of my canvas shoes with a bit of hairspray. Works every time!
