The Perfect Fit: Marie Johansson from Freed of London

Posted by on 10.22.2012

The manager of Freed of London’s New York store, Marie Johansson, is responsible for the specially made Freed pointe shoes of every professional dancer in America. Each year she visits Miami City Ballet’s studios to find the perfect fit for the company dancers and students. A couple of weeks ago I had the chance to sit down with her and talk about what she looks for when fitting pointe shoes on a dancer.
