When are pointe shoes used?

Pointe shoes are the type of ballet slipper that allows enough support for the dancer to go fully up on their toes. You should NOT use these until you are over the age of 13, or if you have weak ankles. If you have weak ankles, excersize them by pointing and flexing using a rubber excersize band to provide resisitance.

These are used when the dancer is strong enough to perform an entire routine on their toes, with the exception of preparatory movements (such as a plie before a turn) or when landing a jump.
