I've never seen a toe stand in that kinda shoe. Looks nice, but were you intending to lean back so far?

Are your shoes full-sole or split-sole? In the picture it looks as if they are full-sole because when I had my full-sole taps, I had to lean back really far and bend my knees like crazy just to get on my toes like you are doing in this picture.

My only advice for improvement would be to get even higher on your toes and straighten your feet a little more so that they're not bent.

Your toe stand looks nice, but I can't tell if you're trying to lean back.

I think you should just try to straighten out your knees. It helps me keep balance.

Yes but if she straightened her knees, she'd fall over :/

Looks like a controlled lean to me - could be tightened up a bit but I'm sure she could do better in a performance situation.

Not a huge fan of the feet being so wide apart, but that's mainly a stylistic issue.

make sure you get all the way up on your toes. using your center just as you would in ballet or jazz really helps to get all the way almost as if on pointe. :)
