These exercises develop much more functional strength as the student must learn to control placement on demi-pointe as well as developing core and hip control. It also helps set up the correct muscle firing patterns in the foot and ankle, in relation to the rest of the body, which can then be directly translated into the studio. Pointing the foot, even in something as ‘simple’ as a Tendu, should be an entire body experience, including activation of the core, turnout, and leg muscles as well as the feet.
