Guest dance4life87 Posted August 23, 2003 Report Share Posted August 23, 2003 For being 15 turning 16 at the end of this year, I know that I want to make it into ballet for my career. I was reading "holding onto the air" and Suzanne Farrell says that she did pointe for all of her classes everyday. Ballanchine obviously wanted her to be on pointe all the time for all of her classes. I (for the new school year) am going to be dancing from 4 - 6 hours monday through saturday. I was thinking, and if I want to be a really amazing dancer on pointe and do what she did I'd like to dance all of my classes on pointe too. Would this be a good choice or a bad one? If a bad choice to do all of those hours on pointe how many of them should I be dancing on pointe? Quote Link to comment
