Marenetha Posted July 15, 2004 Report Share Posted July 15, 2004 In pointe class today, we did a bunch of stuff, some of which I couldn't quite do fully because my shoes are completely new and the boxes are hard, so it just felt weird. However, we were doing sissones en pointe, which were very fun, and which I completely did not know that you could do. I know that you can do changements en pointe - does this mean that you can do everything en pointe? Also - was it that your foot is strong if you never break the shank, but kill the boxes of your pointes first, or is it that it's weak if it acts like that? (I'm pretty sure it's the first, but not entirely - that's what I do, and I think that I have strong feet.) Also, developpes en releve - is there any adjustment that you should do from working on demi? I'm pretty sure that there isn't, but I do know that some steps do require weight held differently - I just want to make sure. Last (I promise this is the last!) if pointe class is including 90 million pirouettes, developpes, piques, chainees, soutenus, beginning work for fouette turns (no turning - just working on the preparations), emboites, normal pique / bouree stuff, and seemingly endless work on controlling the shoe from little developpes to the ground, around what level of pointework is that? (I mean beginning, intermediate, advanced. I know little about that which I haven't learned.) Thanks! ahr Quote Link to comment
