About us

Head shot


Our Story:

To The Pointe-Shoe Store was founded in 2020 by Hannah Grimes. Hannah's extensive ballet background and education/work experience prepared her to open her own business. After she earned her MBA from the University of Southern Mississippi her husband's career brought her to Tupelo, MS. Hannah continued to teach ballet, but realized there was a need for a full service dance store in the North MS community. So, To The Pointe was born. 

In addition to being an entrepreneur Hannah volunteers with the United States Tennis Association CTA board as Treasurer and is the Production Chairman of Distinguished Young Women of Lee County. She still teaches ballet and is the accountant for her husband's full time tennis academy.

To The Pointe-Shoe Store emphasizes on accurately fitting pointe shoes to promote healthy feet. You should leave the store feeling like Cinderella wearing glass slippers to the ball. Hannah is committed to making sure every customer leaves the store in a perfectly fitted shoe so they can dance with confidence. Top quality and excellent fitting items are essential to dancers, therefore Hannah is constantly searching for new styles to share with our customers.  Hannah danced and wore pointe shoes for many years so she has first-hand experience of how a shoe should not only look, but feel on the foot and function on the floor.  

Your dancers and purchases for them are important, therefore we want you to purchase items that will last and will fit your dancer properly. Hannah is also committed to the "Shop Local" movement and to providing her customers with quality service and style.

To The Pointe-Shoe Store Mobile:

is a mobile fitting service designed with instructors and students in mind. Students no longer need to drive 30 minutes or more to receive a professional pointe shoe fitting from trained, knowledgeable, experienced fitters. To The Pointe-Shoe Store has an upstanding reputation for listening to concerns and fitting pointe shoes properly.

We've created a professional environment where teachers can be present for each of their students' fittings to share in the experience and provide information of the students' strengths and technique, whether it's a first time fitting or for an experienced dancer. We also prioritize the student's positive experience, making sure they leave their first pointe shoe fitting with the tools, knowledge and excitement to begin this new step in their dance journey.

Our fitters enjoy encouraging and connecting with the students on a professional and personal level, to help them find the perfect shoe and assist them throughout their dance career. It is so much more than just a fitting!
