Kathryn Sullivan

“Gaynor Mindens are excellent for the beginning pointe student. They enable the dancer to build her own strength in the foot without overly relying on the shoe. They encourage the correct position of the toes, and provide just enough resistance for a smooth roll-up and roll-down. I strongly recommend this shoe — along with good training — as a perfect way to be introduced to the wonderful world of pointe work!

It’s the shoe of the new generation.”

-Kathryn Sullivan, April 2006
