Best Answer

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.

What are some ways to go on pointe?

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.

Is the Diarrhea of the Mouth T-shirt too gory for school?

It isn't gory, it is crude and distracting. It may also be seen as insulting to teachers who, after all, spend a great deal of time talking to students. Unless your point is to bring attention to yourself, distract your fellow students and possibly alienate teachers and administrators, I'd avoid wearing something like that to school.
