Guest fadkison Posted August 7, 2006 Report Share Posted August 7, 2006 My daughter is scheduled to begin pointe class this fall. I am concerned she is too young. It was my understanding that pointe training began at age 11 or 12. She has taken ballet since she was 3. She was advanced 2 levels a couple years ago, so the girls in her class are 1 and 2 years older than her. Last year she had 1 hour of "pre" pointe and 1 hour of technique each week. I have heard starting pointe too young can cause long term foot problems. Can anyone help me gain a better understanding of what is required to progress to pointe? Thanks! Quote Link to comment
