kind of.. demi point shoes are to make your feet stronger.. iv been on pointe for a while now, and my RAD teacher has just suggested that i purchase a pair of demi pointes (or soft blocks) i have strong feet, but this is what she explained to me: professional dancers dance on pointe.. so why do we dance all these years on flats or split soles? she says that professionals almost never dance on stage with flats, so in order to train our feet and not put them in total pain with pointe shoes.. we wear demi pointes.

How long after you start ballet can you dance Demi pointe?

If you are talking about demi pointe shoes (otherwise known at soft blocks) your teacher may recommend you to wear them. I recently got my demi pointe shoes and have been taking ballet classes for just over a year (now at grade 4). Mine were very uncomfortable at first, but you just have to break them in, just like you would for a regular pointe shoe. If in any doubt talk to you ballet teacher, they could give you some advice about whether you should need soft blocks. Also if you are taking RAD intermediate exams, I believe it is compulsory to have demi pointe shoes. Not completely sure though, i would double check. Good luck and hope this was some help to you:)

What is the answer to radical 12 minus 3 radical 3?

What is the simplified expression for radical 12 minus 3 radical 3?

In order to work with radicals (adding or subtracting) they have to have the same radical expression. ex: 2 rad 3 + 4 rad 3 = 6 rad 3. If it helps, change the similar radicals to a variable. 2 rad 3 + 4 rad 3 2 x + 4 x = 6x and then substitute your radical back in for the variable. 6 rad 3 ---- rad 12 - 3 rad 3 Let's simplify radical 12. First, factor 12 into a perfect square, and a not perfect square.) Hint: we want it to be radical 3 to work with it... 3 times what is 12? rad 12 = sqrt(12) = sqrt(4*3) sqrt(4*3) = sqrt(4)*sqrt(3) sqrt(4) is just 2! We bring this to the "outside" of the radical. sqrt(4)*sqrt(3) = 2 sqrt(3) or 2 rad 3 rad 12 - 3 rad 3 2 rad 3 - 3 rad 3 (or 2x - 3x if it helps) We're left with: -1 rad 3, or just - rad 3 (negative radical 3)

How old do you need to be on pointe?

Answer:It's a good idea to ask you teacher, as he or she has lots of experience in the area. Your feet and ankles need to be strong enough to support you, and a number of factors - such as how long you have been doing ballet for - will affect how long it takes for you begin pointe work.Answer:Although there is no age limit, 12 is around a good age. This is because you must wait for your feet to stop growing so you do not damage them. 12 really is the earliest they should be given, but some studios give them as early as 8.Answer: I'm 11 and I'm on pointe. There isn't really an age limit! Some teachers put you on as soon as you are strong enough to, others make you wait until you are a certain standard. If you do RAD you go on pointe in intermediate foundation onwards (I'm in intermediate foundation). With other ballet styles it is in a grade.
