  • How to tell when you’re ready for Pointe Shoes?

    Age is one factor because growing feet can easily be deformed by too early training in point shoes. The other factor is strength. There is no set number of releves needed. Also learn about foot care as blisters are a certainty. Practice pointing your feet at home, push your foot along the carpet to a point - try and do this while keeping a straight... show more

    The simple answer to your question is no. As to whether or not it would count to college extra-curricular you would have to enquire locally to find out. As for point work the main reason to not start is age, generally don't start before about 11 or 12. Being 15 your bones have already developed and are at less risk of becoming deformed.

    The simple answer to your question is no. As to whether or not it would count to college extra-curricular you would have to enquire locally to find out. As for point work the main reason to not start is age, generally don't start before about 11 or 12. Being 15 your bones have already developed and are at less risk of becoming deformed. As MC defined above it takes considerable training to develop the basic strength required to go on point. Beyond that when you should begin point work depends on the individual. Are you athletically inclined, have you done other training before. With the amount of classes you have planned at least three per week it seems you may have the strength to start point in as little as three months. Don't wait years to start because it will take years to develop the ability to dance on point.

  • Why u.s government covering up about u.f.o's?

    That's just it you see, the whole UFO stuff is a cover story. UFO flaps in America may coincide with the influx of Nazi's? ie - operation paperclip stuff, think 1947, think 1952.

    Sad reality is that it is often "instructions?" requests perhaps, for action that come from Britain, like Operation Ajax overthrowing the government of Iran in 1953 was in relation to British Petroleum. So maybe Britain should stop pulling America's strings.
