Progressing onto pointe is one of the biggest rites of passage a young dancer faces, it is often very exciting. However, it is also very challenging, and the excitement of that shiny new pair of shoes is often quickly soured with the onset of pain and blisters. But it does not have to be this way! Given a slow and carful preparation, along with a detailed assessment of the dancer before pointe work is introduced, it can be one of the most amazing times, and open up a whole new world of possibilities in dance.
