First time on Pointe


Recommended Posts


I've been dancing since the sixth grade and have always wanted to go on pointe. I've never really told any of my dance teachers that I was born with a smaller left foot. Would it be possible and safe for me to go on pointe when I have two slighlty different sized feet.

There is usually no need to quote the entire previous post, so you can avoid the Reply buttons within every post. :lol:

I've known a couple of cases where that's happened. It means that you'll be buying two pairs of shoes at a time, but that's not a big deal. As long as there's no malformation in either foot, and everything else is working technically for you, then you could take on pointe. How long ago WAS sixth grade, anyway? (How old are you?)
