Introducing Russian Pointe

All About Dance is thrilled to announce the addition of the immensely popular Russian Pointe brand of products to our website this season, just in time for winter performances and holiday gift-giving!

Russian Pointe brand pointe shoes, ballet slippers, and creative learning products have become incredibly well known and respected among dancers from students to elite professionals for their superb quality and unique craftsmanship.

In addition to pointe shoes and ballet slippers, a new collection of Growing Through Arts educational products was recently launched.  The beautifully illustrated storybooks, play sets, and dress up apparel introduce children to great classical ballets like the Nutcracker, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, and more.

These fun products are great tools that dance parents and dance instructors will adore sharing with their youngsters at home and at the studio. The books and adorable dress up items make great gifts for any young dancer.

    would you ever carry almaz on width 5? You have this style in my daughter’s size needs (shank and vamp) but the widest you have is a 4.

      Hi Thelma,

      Thank you for your inquiry. Although we do not currently have the size 5 width available, we do hope to add more sizes and widths for the Russian Pointe products later this year. I will certainly pass along your feedback. Thanks again and we hope to be able to meet your needs in the future.

      Have a great day!

    I wear the Rubin RV not the RD. Do you have them available? All I see are the RD’s.

      Hi Valari,

      I’m sorry, at this time we do not have the Rubin RV available. We hope to add more Russian Pointe styles and shoe options later this year, so please check back soon. Thanks for your inquiry!

    Are the Russian Pointe line of shoes appropriate for new dancers that have just made the switch to being on pointe?

    • On March 14, 2013 at 2:50 pm admin responded with... #


      Yes, the Russian Pointe shoes are an excellent choice for new dancers on pointe. However, it is very important to receive a proper fitting before ordering your first pair of shoes. You will want the style that is right for your shape of foot, as well as a shank strength that is appropriate for your level of dancing. There is a link to find a fitting location near you on the Russian Pointe product pages at

      Please feel free to contact our customer service team at 1.800.775.0578 if you would like to discuss this product in more detail!

      Best wishes on your pointe dancing!
