What’s a Gaynor Girl? We’re glad you asked!

Gaynor Girls are students and young professionals, aged 14 and up, who choose to train and perform exclusively in Gaynor Minden pointe shoes. They have an active presence on Instagram, and are as enthusiastic about all things Gaynor Minden as we are! While you can only be an official Gaynor Girl for one year, Gaynor Girls may return as Gaynor Minden Artists later in their careers. Any student, apprentice, trainee, second company member, or first or second year corps de ballet member, 14 or older, who wears Gaynor Minden pointe shoes exclusively, can apply to be a Gaynor Girl.
