Not ready for pointe?


Recommended Posts

I've been thinking about this for awhile, and finally decided to ask my question here. One of my friends in ballet class is not as good as the rest of us. When en pointe, she cannot get over her box at all, despite the shoes being a year old( she only uses them maximum once a week, so they aren't completley dead yet). She kind of balances on the end of the box. She is also struggling with some of the combinations our teacher gives us. When she goes en pointe, I am a little afraid she might hurt herself. Can/should I do anything about this? If so, what? Any help is greatly appreciated:-)

Wild538, unfortunately there is really nothing you can do about it. It is your teacher's responsibility.

Sorry, Taralightnerdancer. I had to remove your first post because only Young Dancers and our Teacher Moderators are allowed to post on the YD forums.
