Apprentice - American Ballet Theatre
Rachelle Di Stasio

“I really love Gaynor Minden pointe shoes! They are always consistent for me; when I wear them I feel like I’m just wearing normal technique shoes. They feel like such a part of my feet that I don’t have to worry about them, and I can completely focus on the work and the enjoyment of dance!”

Born in Palo Alto, California and raised in Nashville, Tennessee, Rachelle Di Stasio began her formal ballet training, at the age of 8, at the School of Nashville Ballet. She continued her training at the Gelsey Kirkland Academy of Classical Ballet (GKA) in NYC from 2011-2013, studying on scholarship at The School of American Ballet, Ellison Ballet, and GKA during the summers. In 2013 she was awarded a full scholarship to attend American ballet Theatre’s Summer Intensive program, and was then offered to study at the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis School at ABT, also on full scholarship. She received scholarship to attend Jacob’s Pillow Ballet Program in June 2014, and was a member of the ABT Studio Company for their 2014/15 season. Rachelle joined ABT as an Apprentice in 2015.

      The best way to achieve a perfect pointe shoe fit is to go in person to an experienced fitter who maintains a large inventory so you can try many different options. We encourage you to use the worldwide Store Locator on this page to find a fitter near you.

      No store can carry every Gaynor Minden product, so call first.

      If no results are returned, drag or zoom to find the nearest location to you. If you are not able to find a store near you, don’t worry! We will do our best to fit you online.

      A short note on a sensitive subject: We believe that when a fitter in a dancewear store devotes time and sincere effort to helping a dancer find the right shoe, then that store deserves the sale. Gaynor Minden urges dancers to honor the work of stores’ fitters.
