manhattanmom Posted March 14, 2013 Report Share Posted March 14, 2013 My daughter is getting good training right now with excellent teachers, but although the girls are all around 12 yo, this school is in no rush to get them started on pointe. This particular school is known for contemporary, but they do have ballet. The other day when my daughter asked her teacher when they would start pointe, she said not before they were 14. Seriously? I can't imagine any of these girls will come back in the fall if that's the case. We were led to believe that pointe would start this spring when we enrolled. These girls are currently taking 4 ballet classes a week and to my somewhat educated eyes, they look strong enough for pointe. Have any of you experienced this? My guess is that the group above them isn't doing pointe, so they are most likely afraid to start a revolt if this group starts pointe. The group above them takes ballet, contemporary and jazz.
