Every young ballet dancer dreams about it. And every seasoned ballerina remembers it. The first en Pointe and its magical memories stay on for a lifetime. The desire to step up your ballet dance and get up en Pointe is often expressed by young dancers, parents, and sometimes, even teachers. It’s rare to find a dancer who is not enthused about going on Pointe. But merely a strong wish and desire are not enough, and a dancer needs perseverance and persistent practice to make sure the enthusiasm matches the method. There is a time for everything, and this is true for ballet dancers too.
