The ability to go on pointe for some of your numbers has always been fascinating since you do not wear conventional "pointe shoes". How is this done; did you have to study ballet?

Thank you for your question! Our dance shoes have a flat section by the toe which enables us to stand on point without "ballet shoes." It can be quite difficult at first, but is not unusual in Irish Dancing. :)
