Attention, New York City–area dancers! The School at Steps, a division of the legendary Steps on Broadway, is hosting its annual Pointe Shoe Workshop & Fair (sponsored by none other than Pointe) this Sunday night.

Even if you think you've already found your perfect pair, this event is worth checking out. The evening will begin with a panel of experts—a podiatrist, a pointe shoe fitter, teacher Lisa Lockwood and New York City Ballet soloist Savannah Lowery—talking about pointe shoe fitting and foot care. Then you'll be able to browse a selection of shoes with help from fitters from Capezio, Chacott, Gaynor Minden and Grishko.

Everything kicks off Sunday at 6:30 pm at Steps (2121 Broadway, NYC). Tickets are just $10. Click here for more information.
