=No way. Youhave to take Ballet before pointe. If you don't you will get bad would get hurt badly and might even some serious injuries. Injuries that will be with you the rest of your life. I gurantee you wouldn't even find anyone who would teach you without experiece.==I have been taking ballet for about 8 years. I am just starting pointe now. I am a very advanced dancer. 12 years old. In the highest class. And I'm now starting pointe. So you need to have at least 5 years before you start.=

Iam going to tryout for a middle school dance team should i have pointed ballet shoes with out lessons?

you should never go on pointe not knowing how to use them. When you do ballet lessons it strenghtens your ankles so if you have never had a dance lesson DON'T go on pointe as there is a risk of injuryalso you have to make sure to get them fitted properly and have the right protection. so my advice is not to have pointe shoes unless you have ballet lessons and yourteacher has said you can.
