BLOCH Serenade Series

The Serenade pointe shoe shank/insole gives support under the metatarsal which assists in holding the foot back in the shoe. The oblong shaped platform with less height in the box helps give lateral support when 'en pointe'. This platform shape can help support a dancer inclined to sickle or fall off pointe sideways.



  • Narrow heel shape - Hugs the heel and reduces creasing
  • Oblong platform - Lateral support 'en pointe'
  • Shank/insole - Provides support for the foot 'en pointe'
  • Standard 'A' paste - Has resilience and is less affected by climatic conditions such as heat and humidity



'Serenade’ wearers can experience the benefits of TMT in their shoe. The TMT31 has all the features of an S0131 including the traditional S0131 insole and can be molded to the unique contours of a dancer's feet from the very first wear.

Four improvements from the original "Serenade"

  • Streamlined satin upper, sides of the satin upper have been lowered to reveal more of the dancers foot enhancing aesthetic, providing a more modern, streamlined look as well as reducing bunching of satin when on pointe.
  • New generation insole is virtually unbreakable creating harder wearing, longer life, better value for money, lighter, moulds quicker to the sole of a dancers arch giving greater support when on pointe. Also forces the shoe to sit flatter on stage reducing rocking and enhancing stability.
  • Longer wing puff: reduces creasing and bunching of satin when on pointe.
  • Additional padding under pleating makes these shoes quieter by cushions impact on stage reducing noise.



The Serene is based on the Serenade fit with a V shaped vamp. This 'V' gives an alternative to dancers that enjoy longer, slender en pointe aesthetics.
