I know i always ask questions, but i dont know what to do. I am starting dance on monday after a break for the summer. I have done pointe on and off for like 4-5 years. I started when i was 11 years old. I was in 6th grade. I have been in one studio the whole time since then. The studio has undergone a couple of different managements and teachers. They are getting a new teacher to start us on monday. A teacher from a good studio. My mother just spoke to the director. My mom told her i am going to get new ballet stuff today. I wanted new ballet slippers and pointe shoes. The director told my mom not to get new pointe shoes, because the new teacher is very strict. She might take us off all of pointe. I don't want to go off. I know it is probably better if I did, if the whole class did too. But I don't know if I should. I am scared to start with this new teacher. I don't know what she will think. Do any of you have any advice on the matter? I could really use it. My stomach is full of butterflies. PLease help! What ballet stuff should i get? Thanx everyone.

First of all don't panic, just wait and see what this teacher wants. If they are bringing in someone to really work on your basic technique, it is possible she might keep you off pointe for a bit. But, if she does, then it is because it is necessary. If not, fine, get your pointe shoes. But get started first. You have been off all summer, which is not good. It will take some time to get back into technique classes anyway and you should not start pointe until you are in shape again.

One of the basic rules of ballet (and life in general) - don't borrow trouble.

 

Don't fret over disaster that hasn't happened yet. Your school head has said don't buy pointe shoes just yet - so don't buy pointe shoes, simple as that!:D

 

As you go on with ballet, you'll find that changing teachers is really not any big deal. Just mind your manners, and do as you're told.
