I'm looking to expand my skill set and want to train to fit pointe shoes. Does anyone know of courses? I'm in the UK. I know Grisko do fitting courses, I have sent them an email requesting details but does anyone know of any others?

Perhaps Freed might do them. Maybe you could telephone their flagship London store in Covent Garden and ask.

All the manufacturers run courses but they are usually only available to those with shops looking to become a stockist.

Capezio has one, but I don't know if that's just for people who work for their stores. I used to work for a dance store that recently got bought by Capezio, and one of my ex-coworkers just got back from a course in the NYC store.
