eryn Posted February 17, 2006 Report Share Posted February 17, 2006 I've seen people who's ankles don't really looked 'stretched' when they are en pointe, but they're just like pointing their toes, and their metetarsals are like erm in front of their ankles (the two are supposed to be aligned right?) Sorry, i'm not really quite sure how to explain it. I was wondering if this is what is meant by 'sitting in pointe shoes' And when this happens is it because the shanks has become too soft? Or simply because the dancer is not pulling up enough? Or maybe is it just the shape of the foot? And i have another question: when i pointe my feet in my pointe shoes (not go en pointe), are my feet supposed to be fully arched? Because although my instep and arch look fine, it seems as if i'm not pointing my TOES becuase the shoe is not arched under the metetarsal. Thanks! Sorry if my post is kind of confusing.
