“Until I discovered Dancers Boutique, I struggled to find anyone locally who could offer this type of service and it now saves me travelling into London with a dozen or so excited teenagers or being reliant on them getting the correct make/style without my help.”

The Pointe Shoe Centre is located in the new Dancers Boutique store in Amersham, Bucks. where our aim is to provide excellent and knowledgeable service, good quality products and an ever increasing selection of brands and styles of dancewear and footwear.
The Pointe Shoe Centre has already become a busy area in the shop and has been visited by young dancers buying their first pair of shoes and professionals and teachers who have lost count of how many pairs they have had but still appreciate the need to be fitted correctly and to take time to choose the right shoes.
When you make an appointment at the Pointe Shoe Centre, you will receive a thorough fitting by staff who are experienced in pointe themselves and/or have been trained by Grishko and Freed of London and in the Esther Juon method.
As we know how exciting it is to buy your first pointes, we will do everything we can to ensure you enjoy the experience and will give our full attention and advice throughout your appointment. If you require padding, we can advise and show you the types of toe pads and Bunheads accessories that may suit you.
We stock a huge selection of sizes and width fittings of: Freed, including the beautiful and recently re-launched 'Studio' shoe; the increasingly popular Grishko '2007'; five contrasting styles of Bloch pointe shoes and, if necessary, can source harder or softer backed versions of your chosen style if required.
We have fitted our 1000th pair!
- Nicole Thompson had a surprise when she arrived with her mum for her pointe shoe fitting this month, she was our 1000th customer since we opened the Pointe Shoe Centre 2 years ago! Nicole had recently moved to Bourne End from California and had started dancing at The Beaconsfield School of Dance with Fiona Grotefeld. She was looking for her 3rd pair of pointe shoes and was fitted by Alice with a pair of Grishko '2007'. Nicole was very excited to be our 1000th dancer in the PSC and delighted when Paula gave her her new shoes as a gift. She told us that the Grishkos were the most confortable pair she had ever tried on and couldn't wait to get to class to start wearing them.
- Nicoles mother, Charlotta was also thrilled to be involved and happy for us to take photos and ask lots of questions about Nicoles dancing background and plans for her dancing future. She said, "She's thrilled to share the story about how she got her new pointe shoes... a forever memory to treasure, very special. We truly enjoyed meeting you and thank you again for what you did for Nicole." Thank you Nicole for being such a lovely 1000th pointe shoe customer, we hope you have many hours of hard work and enjoyment in your new Grishkos!
