How To Dance Ballet
Posted by Ballet Info on Apr 16, 2007 in Questions | 2 comments
my ballet teachers said that I was ready for point , but one of my friends isn’t that good and has been up for almost two years . I am afriad what if i’m that bad any advise?
when you go en pointe you should be 100% ready, and it sounds like like your teacher is waiting until you are. it’s not that you are bad, theyre doing you a favour. your friend doesnt sound prepeared, and she wil probably injure herself due to her teachers lack of judgement. just keep practicing, you’ll get there eventually.
D.V. you can do daily exercises to prepare yourself for pointe, or strengthen faster if you have started pointe. I have some exercises posted on the balletstore.com which you might like reading, and the Ballet Bible has good information on strengthening also.
Basic technique is all-important, because you’re just doing the same things on pointe, so you want to be doing everything correctly.
So have you actually started pointe work yet?
