A ballet teacher usually decides when to put his/her students on point when he/she sees that the girls' ankles are sturdy. I was 9 or 10 when I got my first pair, but some teachers like to keep their kids on flat (no pointe shoes) for a couple more years. If you are a ballet teacher, keep your students doing relevés on flat for a while to build sturdy ankles.
it depends on what type of shoes you want. Point shoes usually cost around €45 for a new pair in a shop but you can get them cheaper from a ballet teacher who buy's them herself.
It is up to your teacher to decide, and you must be techinically strong. Good Luck, I hope you get there! :)
demipoint is flat ballet shoes and not the point shoes!
Level 5 in ballet is a advanced level you can get stronger in. In ballet 1 you learn the basics. In ballet 2 you learn more steps but still not to advanced. In ballet 3 you learn some more steps and get a little more advanced. In ballet 4 you get stronger and more steps and at that point your feet get stronger and when your feet are strong enough your teacher decides if you go up on pointe or not yet. After 3 or 4 years in ballet 4 you go to ballet 5. ballet 5 is a very advanced class and is the highest level you can get to!
I think that male ballet dancers CAN go on point. I know that females can. So why not men?
well point shoes are ballet shoes that have a hard bit around the toes that allow you to go up on the tips of your toes without hurting them!!!
You need the grace and point of ballet to be able to become a successful figure skater!!
Tendu a la seconde
You have to sew it on.
A shoe with a hard toe.
Pointe shoes are hard and ballet slippers are soft
Modern is not the same thing as ballet as ballet is classical movements of the body and modern is modern dance but it is not the same as street dance, as it can be classical but not ballet.Also for modern you can wear dance trainers which you cannot use in ballet.Ballet you would have to wear point(e) shoes and soft ballet shoes.

To be able to be a point dancer you must first train in ballet. It is VERY important that your ankles are conditioned and strong enough for point shoes. If your instructor proveides point training or clases, then they will have to decide when you are ready to dance on point. You should never attempt to dance on point until your ankles are nice and strong and your instructor has given you the okay. If you attempt to dance on point before you and your body is ready you can cause serious damage, such as, riping tendens, sprainig your ankle, or even braking your ankle. So the best option is to enroll in a dance school or dance classes that offer ballet and point lessons, then to train in ballet, and have your instructor tell you when yo can enroll in point or demi-point classes.
by doing stuff like shoving your foot under a sofa and forcing your foot into a point can really damage the ligaments so don't do any thing that forces your foot into a harsh point so i would recommend the ballet foot stretcher because it works at a steady pace and can be adjusted to your abilities. I've got one and it worked wonders for me
Well it depends on when your ankles and feet are strong enough. Usaully about the age of 12 and have had years of experience of ballet. And also when your dance teacher thinks you are strong enough to go onto point. If your ankles arn't strong enough for point shoes you will experience some ankle issues.
Many of the moves as in pirouettes and kicks are the smae between these two dances. Jazz and Tap are also similar to Ballet because ballet and jazz work together. I would always recommend split soled tap shoes as you must also point your toes in tap which is not easy if the sole is hard.
Many ballet historians consider the greatest change to ballet during the Romantic Era was the development of the technique called "En Pointe" or "On the point". This training technique emphasized dancers dancing on the point of their foot and the development of special "Point shoes" to aid in this technique.
I have been a ballerina for 15 years, so after you have had enough strengthening classes and basic ballet. your teacher will usually tell you when your ready. DOnt do it too soon or you'll risk rolling your ankles.
The term is a pirouette. A full turn of the body on the point of the toe or the ball of the foot in ballet.
Usually around the ages 11-14. Although if you have not done any ballet you will need to do at least a year, if not two, before going en pointe. Also age is not the only factor. Strength of the ankles and technique are both important factors.
It depends. Usually 2-3 years of ballet training unless you learn fast. Ask your instructor. :)
