Pointe is an advanced form of ballet on Pointe shoes. Students will never be put on their toes without first mastering extensive ballet technique, skills and proper body placement. Nor will they be allowed on Pointe before their bodies and muscles have developed. A parent should beware of any teacher who puts a student on Pointe at any early age or with little ballet background.
