From what we hear from the teens, they seem to like Pointe Magazine the best right now.

There is Dance Spirit which is sort of aimed towards competition kids, though they hit on everything. But, I don't subscribe to this mag because it is truly aimed towards the kids (your dd's age).

I subscribe to Pointe Magazine for my studio and leave back copies in the waiting area for my students to read. My own 11 year-old loves it.

My daughter is 11 and a pure classical ballet girl and she loves Pointe Magazine. We also get Dance Spirit but she doesn't like it nearly as much.

Dance Spirit is very competition oriented, and more for the all-around dancer than the serious ballet dancer.

My 11 year old likes most dance magazines, but particularly Pointe. I much prefer Pointe magazine's photography. Some of the photos and ads in other dance magazines really "sell" competitions. Since we have recently broken away from competitions, I don't want to promote that. You might want to take a look at several of them in a dance studio or book store before you subscribe.

We also really like Pointe. The pictures are great, and most of the articles are appropriate for teens or pre-teens. I find Dance Spirit too visually cluttered and too competition focussed.

As a former competition dancer, I admit I still love Dance Spirit and it does have ballet in it. But, Pointe is probably my favorite. I find most of the articles helpful and relevant to my dancing.

My DD always looks forward to getting Pointe Magazine! She reads it cover to cover. The pictures are extraordinary learning tools in themselves. When she finally puts it down, I take the opportunity to read it as well. It's the birthday gift that lasts all year!

I think it depends on the individual child. My daughter isn't into competitions or other types of dance, only classical ballet, so she enjoys Pointe. If your daughter enjoys other types of dance and/or competitions, she might enjoy another magazine better.

 

My DD is the same age as yours and she enjoys reading the articles and looking at the pictures....and yes, even looking at the ads. We have been told she really wants a particular style flat shoe she saw in one of the ads. DD has gotten some great information from Pointe.
