Meet your fitter: Victoria Davies


                                      Victoria has been proudly working at Boulder Body Wear since August 2015. She has been a ballerina for 19 of the 21 years of her life. She grew up in her mom’s studio and began teaching ballet and jazz at the age of 15. Since then she was fortunate enough to dance and teach at numerous studios and non-profit organizations, allowing her to expand her knowledge on dance and all its beauty. Victoria has been dancing on pointe for over 10 years as well as teaching pointe classes for over 5 years. When fitting pointe shoes she uses her own personal experience and knowledge to relate to the dancer as best as possible. Her ambition is to fit the dancer in a shoe that will keep their feet healthy and keep them smiling while they are doing what they love! She is currently getting her degree in Integrative Physiology at the University of Colorado Boulder and using all of her knowledge about the human body to ensure that the fit of the pointe shoe is the best it can be!
