Ballerinas must break
in new Pointe Shoes, just like any new shoe. They try methods, such as hitting
them with blunt objects, wetting the toe box and wearing them wet, heating them
to soften the glue. They have learned, over years of dancing, when to stop
before they shorten the life of new shoes.

Original oil painting on canvas board Young Dancer in blue Tutu
The word 'tutu' has its origins in the theatre audience. Those who bought
cheaper tickets sat in a section located in the lower part of the theatre. This
area gave the patrons sitting there a different view than the rest of the
audience; they could often see under the ballerinas' skirts and see their
bottoms. This led to a lot of talk and eventually, the French baby talk word for
this part of the ballerina, "cucu," became "tutu".
