Welcome to All About Pointe
This is a site that is always in progress and is for students of Ballet, and their parents, who want more information on Pointe training. Please read carefully. Pointe is not for every dance student and if done incorrectly, can cause serious, permanent injuries.
There are many schools of dance, and dance teachers, who offer ballet classes, and pointe training, who are not educated enough, therefore not qualified to teach it properly. It is hard for parents and students to know this without knowing what is required.
This site has been designed to meet those needs and educate those who are in search of such knowledge.
If a student is not ready for pointe, or will never be on pointe, that does not mean that they are not a good dancer, but rather not ready or possibly may not have the physical ability to ever dance on pointe.
If you have any suggestions of additions to the site, please use the contact form, below.
No spammers, please.
Browse through the pages for any information you may need, or just for fun.
Teachers, check this out. http://www.balletcurriculum.com/finding-the-correct-full-pointe-position/
