Guest abbymariaaa32 Posted August 22, 2006 Report Share Posted August 22, 2006 (edited) I snowboard, and i've snowboarded for 6 years. I'm on a team and compete in many competitions. This year, to improve in snowboarding and for my love of dance and ballet, i joined ballet classes. I'm super stoked, especially since i'm not the only 15 year old girl starting ballet as I read on the threads. I'm in pretty good shape with good and improving flexibility, wicked balence, and my strength is good and improving aswell. I bought my ballet shoes and such and wayy before i even knew the difference of pointe shoes and ballet shoes, i could already do pointe pretty much.and by pretty much i mean stand on my toes. I have the right form, and turn out etc. and I have really good arches and strong ankles from so many years of snowboard training, and luckily have that to my advantage. haha plus, i'm already used to taping my feet.I know its not good for my feet to "practice pointe" but i've just become consumed with dancing that Its becoming a governing and domineering way of life, no longer a part of my life. I guess what i'm saying is I'm getting really serious about ballet and dance, so with the advantages that I have, I was simply wondering a ballpark figure of when I'll be able to do pointe for real, assuming I work hard and everything, which I will. Dance really is one of the best ways to express yourself, and I value that art so, if anyone could hit me back i would appreciate it immensly. Thanks.
