Jaana Heino Posted June 29, 2003 Report Share Posted June 29, 2003 On the teachers' forum, there was a link to a pointe readiness test. I think I understood most of it (and agreed with everything I understood), but the following gives me trouble: 5. Arch of footHave student sit on the floor, back flat against the wall with legs in front of her, and tell her to point her foot and hold it while you measure. As student points her foot, place a ruler on top of her instep, parallel to the floor to measure the space between the toes and the ruler. Repeat on the left foot. Check for space between the ruler and the entire length of all five toes, beginning with the “knuckles.” Could someone explain me what's going on there? It could be a language problem (though I think I do understand all the individual words, like instep and ruler), or it could be a problem with the fact that I have no idea what is being measured.
