What About the Pointe Shoes?
It’s possible, but don’t hold your breath. Graduating to pointe shoes is a rite of passage that happens when the dancer’s abilities say she’s ready. Two years of ballet at least three days per week is the general standard, although students with special talent may move on sooner. Your muscles must be very strong, and your balance must be unflappable - if you cannot hold a demi-pointe passe in the center for at least two minutes, you’re not ready.
