Resources for Retail Affiliates
Russian Pointe is beside our retail affiliates every step of the way. We are honored to be able to provide dancers with the best possible tools for their artistic development and performance, and our retail affiliates are essential partners.
We believe that there’s no such thing as too much learning! We offer informational reading and graphical aids for both retail affiliates and dancers (and their parents!), and videos that explain each pointe model and Russian Pointe’s unique features and benefits. We also develop articles and videos in which dancers and retail affiliates talk about dance and Russian Pointe, sharing their stories and tips. Through this wealth of information and inspiration, both retail affiliates and dancers find enriched opportunities to make informed choices and grow in satisfaction.
Visits and seminars
Both new and experienced retail affiliates are invited to request visits from our business development and pointe fitting experts. One of our favorite ways to support retail affiliates is through a day of guided fittings and demonstration. Upon request, one of our experts will spend the day at your store working closely with you and your staff to provide fittings for your clientele, or to demonstrate fitting methods through “mock” fittings with dancers of your choice. We have hosted seminars about Russian Pointe and pointe fitting for groups of retail affiliates and for teachers (in partnership with a retail affiliate). We also welcome invitations to work alongside you at special fitting events for professional studios or summer programs, depending on availability.
When our retail affiliates have questions, we are only a phone call or email away! We receive many requests for consultation about individual fittings, and we welcome your questions. For example, if you are working with a dancer who hasn’t yet found her perfect fit, let us know what is working and what is not working, and we will suggest options for you. We know Russian Pointe inside and out, and we can often find solutions to your greatest challenges.
