Best Answer

The average age for a Ballet dancer to begin pointe is 12 years old. This allows time for the dancer's bones to develop. There is no specific age however, that one begins pointe. To begin pointe a dancer must not only have been trained in ballet for a number of years and have acheived a certain skill level, but they must also have acquired the neccesary muscles and strength in the ankle, legs etc. to begin pointe work. A dance teacher will be able to determine the physical readiness of a dancer in regards to begining pointe.
