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

  1. In the crowd of people on that boat, no one is actually calling their name when the time comes to disembark, or change course. Perhaps that person in charge of steering has never been established in the first place, and the boat may not be able to be docked on the other side at the best end point.


Thank you very much for leaving a comment. Due to my time restraints, some comments may not be answered.I will answer questions that I feel will help the community as a whole.. I can only answer medical questions in a general form. No specific answers can be given. Please consult a podiatrist, therapist, orthopedist, or sports medicine physician in your area for specific questions.
