LauraT Posted April 24, 2005 Report Share Posted April 24, 2005 So i found out a couple of days ago that a piece i'm in for an upcoming dance performance will require me to be on pointe. The only problem i haven't done pointe since october (even though i have been keeping in shape since then). I'm wondering if this would really be a good idea for me to do. The only things i have to do on pointe are a sous-sous balance and a pique arabesque, which are pretty simple things to do. the only reason the choreographers want me on pointe is because it's supposed to be a ballet audition where the "rejects" do some hip-hop, then us "bunheads" come back on carrying the pointe shoes and we have a hip-hop vs. ballet battle. i was planning on going in to the dance studio and doing some releves and echappes and such this week to kind of get myself back in shape. Would this be a good idea or should i tell the choreographers that me doing pointe would be a bad idea? Quote Link to comment
