Letters of the Alphabet Represented Using Ballet Shoes

Dancers with The Australian Ballet gracefully recite the English alphabet using specific ballet terms, particularly those relating to their pointe shoes.

From ‘Arch’ to ‘Ouch Pouch’ and onward! Our ballet dancers demonstrate a pointe shoe-related point for every letter of the alphabet. ‘S’ has got to be our favourite!
