Your recent Backstage Pass to Swan Lake revealed a gallery of images taken backstage at the Royal Albert Hall in June while English National Ballet danced their in-the-round production.
Some of the images were featured in YOU magazine on Sunday 22nd August. Dancer Silvia Aiuvalasit featured inside the cover, wearing her ‘space boots’ to keep her feet warm. The boots are vital because cold feet can be dangerous for a dancer waiting between Acts and passing the time (in Silvia’s case, by reading the programe).
Since the feature was published, I have been asked for more details about the ‘space boots’. Since I use them myself, I can vouch for how toasty they keep your feet and how comfortable they are. With Autumn blowing her way in already, I use mine as slippers at home and they have proved to be the warmest I’ve ever had.
The warm-up boots are made by Bloch, and can be purchased online at DanceDirect, for £22.95.
