What is the difference between the ArchStretch Elite and ArchStretch Premium?
There is no difference between the functionality or the effectiveness of the stretchers. All the stretchers provide the same function and are equally effective. The difference is only in the surface material. The ArchStretch is covered in memory EVA foam with a hypoallergenic (anti-fungus & repels odor causing bacterial) surgical grade silicone insert and can be easily wiped down. The ArchStretch Premium is covered in a hypoallergenic (anti-fungus & repels odor causing bacteria) surgical grade silicone and same material silicone insert. This version was created for those dancer with sensitivity to latex or rubber. It is very durable and the material repels odor producing bacteria. You can easily clean it with a clorox wipe. Either model have excellent adaptation for any foot size. The silicone stretcher was especially developed for dancers with sensitivities to latex, rubber, etc.
What is the difference between the Pirouette Mini and the Pirouette Premium?
The Pirouette Mini is our smaller, more portable model especially suitable for starting and intermediate dancers who are just beginning to turn. The Pirouette Premium is equipped with an extra smooth spinning mechanism that allows for more consistent turns.
What is the difference between the SpringCore Balance and the SpringCore Balance Premium?
The SpringCore Balance is mean to assist dancers with improving balance and stability by strengthening the core and leg muscles as well as increasing ankle range of motion and joint mobility. Unlike our SpringCore Balance Premium, our SpringCore Balance is stationary and does not spin. Our SpringCore Balance Premium is a combination of our SpringCore Balance and our Pirouette Premium. Spinning while balancing on the SpringCore Balance Premium targets turnout, turning, balance, promenading, ankle strength, hip rotation, back strength, core strength, spotting, proper muscle memory, and control. Like the Pirouette Premium, the SpringCore Balance Premium is equipped with an extra smooth spinning mechanism that allows for more consistent turns.
The rubber band on my ArchStretch broke! Where can I get another one?
On rare occasions, the rubber band does break. Replacement rubber bands can only be purchased through our online store. Breakage of the rubber band is often caused by contact with sharp objects (such as long finger nails). Please, keep this in mind when using your new rubber band on your ArchStretch!
The cushion on my Pirouette Mini/Pirouette Premium/SpringCore Balance/SpringCore Balance Premium is damaged! What do I do next?
The skid-proof pad of these products can become damaged if shoes are worn during use or if the cushion comes into contact with any sharp, rough, or hot surfaces. Damages like these often cause bubble-like blisters to form on the cushion. These bubbles do not in any way diminish the efficacy of these products nor their safety. If you still wish to replace the skid-proof pad, you may purchase a replacement cushion through our online store. Instructions for removal of the existing pad and placement of your new cushion can be found on the "Replacement Cushion" product page in our "Shop". If you'd like us to talk you through replacing your cushion, contact us once your replacement cushion has arrived to schedule a phone call with a member of our staff.
Is the ArchStretch/ArchStretch Premium safe for all ages?
We have consulted several pediatricians regarding this matter. The consensus is that they are safe for any age (yay!). However, we recommend that parents of very young children consult their family physician for confirmation. As with any training equipment, improper use may result in injury. We have video tutorials available on YouTube channel (KNKMiami) for your reference.
Does shoe size matter when considering what training equipment to purchase?
No, our products accommodate any size foot, from the tiniest foot to the largest foot.
