Im 13 and ive been dancing for a year. I have two classes a week, and i practice at home. When would i be able to go en pointe?
Since you’re older than nine, your bones have hardened so you don’t have to worry about doing permanent damage to your feet. The amount of time it takes to be able to go en pointe varies depend on who you talk to, the minimum is two to three years to be safe. Some people suggest seven years, but you could always ask your teacher. You can still practice balancing on releve, focus on doing them correctly not on how many you can do. If you can visit a podiatrist, they might be able to tell you if your feet are strong enough to go en pointe.
Sorry for not updating this blog frequently, We are both busy :\
just keep sending your rants and thoughts about dancing and we will sure make it once we have time :)
I cannot get onto my block and it's frustrating me! I don't know what I'm doing wrong. If I rise up, I don't get close to going fully en pointe. do you have any tips?
Your shoes might be the wrong size, or you might just need to strengthen your toes more. Even with the block, pointe takes alot of toe strength. Have you practiced standing on your toes barefoot? Use a chair for support at first so you don’t injure yourself :)
Gotta go sleep now! its Midnight here already.
