Do you know how the pointe shoes are created?

The pointes get the special place in a ballerina’s career and life, that’s why we decided to tell a story about the production process, to show how these pink satin miracles are born. We had a lucky chance to get into a very heart of R-Class company that has been producing ballet shoes for almost 30 years. We depicted the whole process from the birth of an idea, its embodiment in a last form, up to the moment when the shoes come to the hands and then to the feet of a dancer. The pointe shoes are completely hand crafted and made by one master from the beginning to the end, some craftsmen work for the company for more than 20 years – this all ads unique sincerity and warmth. Moreover, the manufacture space itself reminds of the behind the scenes atmosphere. We are happy to present our exclusive video and to invite you to the amazing pointe world together with La Personne.

Jacopo Tissi – Bolshoi Theatre

There is something unique – in his dance, in emotional dignity, in his dedicated attitude towards profession and in fantastic succeeding to learn the language perfectly within two years. My first question about the preferable language for interviewing had a rapid answer – “I would prefer Russian”. We talked to Jacopo Tissi about different things – his life in Moscow and work with the Bolshoi Theatre, about the artistic path, Russian traditions, his partnership with Svetlana Zakharova and cherished dreams.

December is the time for miracles… In every place and every time period there is a special Christmas tale – about wonderful transforms, wish fulfillments, about Love… All year long we are running somewhere, we are getting older… but going on dreaming. And when the winter comes and a snow carpet covers the Earth – Magic revives. The shop windows are shining, the carrousels are turning, the Nutcrackers are fighting over the Evil at the theatre stages, and the sounds of snow adagio are interlacing with coffee and caramel scents. You never know where… a miracle is waiting for you. Always believe… Dear readers, today we are presenting the tale from La Personne. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
