The Ballet Blog: Looks Like a Great Site
Here is a Ballet Question I get asked all the time. When is a safe for my daughter to go en pointe?
My typical answer is 12 years old when there is enough skeletal maturity and when the child has enough strength to maintain proper technique (normally after 3-5 years of training) throughout the entire class. Poor technique leads to bunions, hammertoes, pain in many areas. Dr Rich Blake
