I took pointe many years ago (I am in my mid 30s) It takes time to break in your pointe shoes. Be patient and You should be wrapping your toes in Lamb's wool to cushion and ease the pain

am i ready for pointe shoes?

It depends on how long you've been doing soft shoe ballet. I started with i was 10 i think. My dance teacher gave me and some other girls "extra ballet" once a week for 2 years before we started on pointe. I would not recommend to teacher yourself for two reasons. 1) I always need someone there watching me and telling me if i am doing something wrong because sometimes i cant feel it. 2) Pointe is allot different than regular ballet. You will need a teacher there with you to help you, especially if you are just starting. Good Luck.

Is ballet really hard to learn?

It is a very disciplined and beautiful dance/exercise. It will elongate your muscles and get you in shape. It is not an easy dance form to take on but the beginning moves start fairly easy. You will not be expected to do pointe work as you must have built up enough strength in your ankles and feet, plus have the technique to be able to dance on pointe. Be patient and go at the speed your teacher recommends. You just might enjoy it

New to ballet, how soon until I can get on pointe?

You are quite a bit older then I was when I started ballet, but it took three years for me. The first year I had one class a week. Last year I had two, ballet and pre pointe. This year im up two four, including pointe. It depends on your ankle strength and stuff like that. I think itll take you about three years. Good luck!!

I am starting pointe very very soon... ?

When you go for your fitting, you must make an appointment. The best time of day is in the afternoon (maybe 3pm or so) so your feet will be easiest to fit correctly, due to daily walking and normal swelling of the foot throughout the day. I suggest you wear a pair of transitional (convertible) tights. Wear something loose over it so you can lift up your paints like sweat pants, or you can wear shorts. Allow an hour for the fitting. The best shoes are the ones that work best for your feet and level of dance. What is great for one dancer, is disaster for another. Try on as many pairs as you can. A beginner would not want a shoe with a small platform. It is harder to balance on. The fitter will get you the right shank, box, vamp, heel and profile for you foot. Make sure you can get up on your box before you leave. They will offer you padding when you try on shoes. Try to get away with as little padding as you can. That is because if you use too much, you will lose control and feel like you are dancing on a false foot. That can be dangerous. If you can just tape that would be ideal, but you may wish to use some loose lambs wool or lambs wool pads if you must. Getting gel pads, will not help you feel the floor and will hold back your ability to learn to dance well en pointe. I know many recreational dancers do use them because they think the extra padding will make it hurt less. The truth is, you will need to toughen your feet up and gel pads stop that from happening and keep you removed from the floor. If you start with little or no padding and just tape, you will build calluses and do much better. Congrats on getting your pointe shoes!

Help with Grishko Pro 2007 Pointe Shoes?Grishkos are notorious for having hard, hard, HARD shanks. I wear the softest shanks they make and I still have to break them in the door before I can function in them. Speaking of, try that. Mark on the shoe where you need it to bend under your arch. Find the heaviest door you can, open it, and put the shoe in the space where the hinges are so that when you close the door, it will break the shank where you marked it. Do a practice run before you actually close door all the way so you can make sure it will break where you need it to— — — — — —What Kind of Pointe Shoes are the best for people with very high arches?i might bypass to get your ft measured for pointe shoes so as which you are going to have precise measurements to grant providers. i think of that's a stable thought to get the russian pointes as they are very difficult wearing and make pointe artwork look lots greater desirable— — — — — —Gaynor Minden pointe shoes?you just have to keep working at it. if your feet are your weakness then you have to strengthen them. getting gaynor mindens will not solve this problem. they do make things easier, but too easy. you wo not be able to strengthen your feet. and have you broken your pointe shoes in? that could be a problem if you have not broken them in properly. and you've only been on pointe for a year so give it time. i do not think they support your foot or look very good. but you know you can always try them and see if you like them— — — — — —Opinions on beginner pointe shoes.?You cannot buy pointe shoes online unless you've had the exact same kind before. There is not such a thing as a good 'beginner' pointe shoe, as everyone's feet are different. What you need to do is go to a dance store which is qualified to fit pointe shoes, and get a proper fitting. A trained fitter will be able to tell what kinds of pointe shoes will work for you feet.

Get an elastic band sewed on them to help them stay on and practice the basics— — — — — —advice with turing on pointe shoes?Do not be afraid & do not overthink the turns, but also, do not hurt yourself. If you do not feel comfortable, ask your instructor if you can continue working at the barre to prepare your muscles for the turns. If you would like to try the turns though, then go for it! Strengthen your legs, ankles, & feet with plie releves both at the barre & in center. Plie releve in first, second, third, fifth, & sous-sus... 8 times in each position. Increase to 16 after you've gained the strength need to hold your balance & roll through your shoes (flat, demi, pointe, demi, flat). Also, plie releve to pointe in coupe derriere. 8-16 times on each leg facing the barre, then when you feel strong enough, try that same combination with only one hand on the barre. Master these 3 types of turns (chaines, pique, & pirouette) in your flat shoes before attempting them en pointe. Things to remember for any turn: 1. Keep your abdominal muscles tight. 2. Hold your arms in first position (little finger at your bottom rib is the proper height). 3. PLIE! PLIE! PLIE! 4. Spot the wall according to your position whether it be en face or croise. Your eyes are always the last to leave & the first to return. 5. Stretch your legs fully... unflexed knees will be the death of your pirouettes. 6. Keep your bottom under & muscles tight. Do not tuck or sink back in your hips & do not arch your back. 7. Hold your retire position without falter! Keep your heel forward & toes back. Here are a few exercises to help you: 1. Practice plenty of releves to strengthen your ankles & arches. 2. Start facing the barre (both hands on the barre) in fifth, right foot front. Plie releve to coupe 8 times with the right & 8 to the left. 3. Facing the barre in fifth... plie, releve to retire, close front. Do 16 with each leg. 4. When you master the first exercise, continue facing the barre & do that same exercise, but with passe closing back (the pattern will be right, left, right, left). Do a total of 16. 5. Stand in fifth with your left leg coupe derriere & plie releve to pointe 16 times. Repeat with the right leg in coupe. 6. Practice balancing in passe for 8 counts, arms in first. 7. Once you have all previous exercises, start doing them with only one hand on the barre, then move on to no barre. ***With all the aforementioned exercises, start slowly (1/2 time with the music) & speed up the tempo only when you feel comfortable enough. If you have to, start with 8 of each exercise, then move up to 16 & continue increasing the amount. Also, create a mental checklist of everything I mentioned that you MUST remember when turning. Repeat each step to yourself till it becomes habit.*** Remember what the names of these turns means; that will help you to properly execute them. Chaines: Meaning "a chain". They are quite literally a chain of turns on 2 legs. Begin in plie, tendu devant. You must pique onto a STRAIGHT leg (knees flexed completely) & never come down from pointe. Use the momentum of your working side (left if going right, right if going left) to keep the turns clean & quick. Keep your heels together in these turns as well. Pique: Meaning "to prick". You prick the floor... my instructors have always told me to imagine that the floor is boiling hot & you will burn your toes if you leave them there for too long. It's a very brisk step. Once again, you start in plie, tendu devant & pique onto your working leg. Arms start in first, open to second while turning, & close back to first when you reach your starting position. Your standing leg must stay straight & remember to plie after every turn to keep balance & speed. Your non-standing leg (the leg you plie with) goes to retire derriere while turning & goes back to a turned out plie when you complete a full rotation. To master a pique turn whether on flat or pointe, you must keep your back perfectly straight. No arching or tucking. Pirouette: Meaning "whirled" or "spin". You will either begin in fourth or fifth if you are in beginner pointe (pirouettes from second will come later). For fourth, keep your core tight & shoulders down. Plie with both legs, arms in 3rd. Pull straight up from your hips & execute your turn. REMEMBER TO SPOT! Good Luck!
