As owner of the successful Irish dancing business, Embroidery Girl, Siubhan Clark has been creating unique items for the Irish Dance Community for over 10 years. Her latest product The Perfect Point combines her University degree in Sports Medicine, her crafting abilities and her role as an Irish Dance Mom. When her daughter, Maiti, two time W.I.D.A. World Champion, wanted to improve her arch strength, the research began.
Ballet dancers have had the advantage of similar products for decades. The Perfect Point stretches the muscles on the top of the foot while strengthening those in the arch. In just minutes a day, a dancer can achieve stronger, more flexible foot musculature ultimately improving arch and point work. Interest in the Perfect Point has spread worldwide.
Siubhan is excited to introduce Sharon Doherty of Dance Dreams in Northern Ireland as the distributor for The Perfect Point in the UK, Ireland and Europe at www.dancedreamgifts.org.uk, or 'DanceDreams Gifts' on Facebook for more information.
