Dancing "en pointe," that is, on the tips of the toes, is a ballerina's greatest challenge.
Ballet teachers must carefully evaluate their students' strength, balance, alignment and mastery of basic skills before giving instruction in pointe technique. Most girls have to dance seriously for at least several years before they are deemed ready to train in this advanced discipline.
Then there are the shoes, those boxy-toed satin slippers with ribbons for laces. Did you know that pointe shoes are so specialized that the ribbons can't even be sewn on by the manufacturer? It's true-a ballerina's own feet and ankles determine placement of the ribbons, so she has to sew them on herself! Who knew?
