|Bloch : Bloch's
philosophy of listening to dancers is still as strong today as it
was when Jacob Bloch made his first pair of pointe shoes in 1932.
Russian born, Jacob arrived in Australia in 1931 at the height of
the Great Depression and began making shoes by hand in the workshop
where he lived. Today Jacob's family is still listening to dancers.
They work with professionals says David Wilkenfeld, Jacob's
grandson, who is Managing Director of Bloch International. The most
important part of the design phase is combining both function and
aesthetic to meet the dancers needs. In addition to shoes, Bloch
makes a comprehensive range of dance apparel and accessories
designed specifically for dancers. Working with the dancers is an
essential part of designing garments that will perform well, enhance
movement and feel great. Their greatest pleasure is when dancers tell
us they love our products.||
