The Bloch Sonata offers great support, longevity and flexibility. It has a wide platform that is tall, making it perfect for balancing, and a tapered heel for a snug fit. This is a good shoe for beginner to professional.
The Sonata, like Serenade and Suprima, has a tapered heel for a snug fit. The platform is as wide as Serenade but taller which makes it a good balancing shoe. The Sonata has many distinct features. The first being, the box is slightly shorter, to allow for an easier demi-pointe. The box also contains a cushion within the pleats to cut down on noise and a sponge inside the toe at the platform for extra comfort and protection.The shank is strong yet malleable and less likely to â€œsnapâ€ when broken. Another difference in the shank is that it contains no tack or glue on the heel which allows the shank to bend more easily at 3/4, resulting in the dancer feeling lifted and supported straight under the arch. The available width fittings for the sonata are a,b, c, d and e and require the dancer to follow break-in technique described below.
