Pointe shoes when not fully ready?


Recommended Posts

Hey Everyone,

So, recently one of my friends has decided to start taking ballet again after not taking classes since she was very little. A few weeks after her classes started she told me that her teacher would like to put her on pointe soon. Of course, being trained at a pre-professional studio, I automatically got extremely worried. Surely she can't be ready for pointe after just starting again!? She's dancing at a small studio where she takes 1 or 2 classes per week. What do you think of this? It makes me nervous thinking about it!

Best not to think about it! She is wasting her time and money taking classes at a school that would do that.


[i moved your topic here, as it is about ballet training, not pointe shoes.]

There is really not much you can do, pinkdancer, except maybe invite her to watch classes at your school?
