In all of the scores of ballet companies I photographed I'd always marvel at the wrecked feet sliding into beautiful toe shoes. This is either from Houston or Atlanta Ballet Co. backstage.

    Beautiful capture and perfect for the theme. I hear how ballerinas ruin their feet and no wonder with those shoes on. The ballerinas are so beautiful when they are dancing on their toes : )
