The title pretty much covers it...I had my first ballet class in pointe shoes yesterday! :)

Despite being the oldest in my class by a fair bit (I'm now 28), everyone was very nice and supportive.

I hadn't expected to ever get this far, so I am very excited and looking forward to my next ballet class! I love my shoes (they are Bloch Aspirations) and, surprisingly, it wasn't as uncomfortable as I had expected.

Congratulations! Yes, it sounds like you were fortunate enough to find a decently-fitting shoe right from the get-go. It sure does make a difference! :)
