RE: When do dancers go on pointe?

I just turned 20 and have been learning ballet for about 5 months now. My ballet teacher feels that I’m not ready to go on pointe shoes yet but I disagree. Because I started so late, I really don’t want to keep wasting anymore time. I know that it depends on each student, but when do dancers typically go on pointe?

It’s really hard to say when dancers “typically” go on pointe. Fantastic to hear that you decided to take up ballet, but 5 months is nowhere close to being prepared for it. So your teacher is right. First step is to build up your leg strength first! 🙂
