Help on double pirouettes

I am 11 years old. I am still absolutely terrible at doing double pirouettes and all of my friends can. I have tried very hard in class and I just can’t. Any tips? Also when and if I am able to do a pirouette, when can I go on pointe?

Help with pirouettes

I need help with the pirouettes because when I whip my head to look north, I fall off the pirouette and lose balance. How exactly should I whip my head or what can I do to not fall? I’m 12 and I started ballet when I was 3, but I stopped at 8 and I have 4 years without ballet even though I trained at home.

Thanks,
Ana

How can I get my teacher to respond?

My name is Andi. I have been dancing for 10 years now and I feel like I’m ready for my pointe shoes. But every time I try to talk to my teacher, she says she can’t talk right now or something stupid. What should I do about her not responding?

Thanks,
Andi
