List of products by brand Bloch
Jacob Bloch's love for music and dance led him to the local ballet schools, and in one of them he saw a young dancer struggling to stay where he was. Jacob promised to do her pointe dance to do, and he did. In 1932, the first Bloch ballet shoes were made in a candle-lit workshop in Sydney, Paddington. At that time, Paddington was far from the fashionable and prosperous area it is today. Jacob made shoes for many of these Russian ballerinas, including Olga Spessitzava, Tamara Toumanova, Irina Baranova, David Lichine, Tatiana Riabouchinska, and Helene Kirsova. Its result was so successful that it resulted in the creation of a full range of dance products and dance fashion. Since then, Bloch's rapid growth in reputation has made the brand one of the most trusted in the industry. Today, Bloch is delivering on the promise made by its founder many years ago.
