“Nutcracker” ballerinas’ most important accessory: Pointe shoes

#TBT to an informative and charming segment about pointe shoes from last holiday season. CBS Sunday Morning created this crash course on the ballet staple, showing where they're created, how they're used at New York City Ballet, and the relationship dancers (including our very own Tiler Peck) have with the iconic pointe shoe, especially while performing in The Nutcracker.
