    when you go en pointe you should be 100% ready, and it sounds like like your teacher is waiting until you are. it’s not that you are bad, theyre doing you a favour. your friend doesnt sound prepeared, and she wil probably injure herself due to her teachers lack of judgement. just keep practicing, you’ll get there eventually.

  • D.V. you can do daily exercises to prepare yourself for pointe, or strengthen faster if you have started pointe. I have some exercises posted on the which you might like reading, and the Ballet Bible has good information on strengthening also.

    Basic technique is all-important, because you’re just doing the same things on pointe, so you want to be doing everything correctly.

    So have you actually started pointe work yet?
