Filipa de Castro | Gaynor Minden

Filipa de Castro

Principal Dancer - National Ballet of Portugal

“It began with a suggestion from a friend, also a Gaynor Minden Artist. We danced together in a gala, and I was complaining about how shoes can change just from bringing them on a plane. She told me that with Gaynor Minden I wouldn’t have those issues, so I decided to try them.

It took some time to find the right ones, but since I started working with them I’ve become a totally different ballerina! I have a feeling of trusting my pointe shoes completely while I’m dancing, not being afraid that they might break in the middle of a pas de deux. And they are so light, that jumping is heaven and they look great on my feet. I feel that I improved to a higher level with them!”
