Hi, my name is Linda Giancaspro and welcome to getting up on your toes in ballet. In order to dance on point is required to have at least 3 days a week of formal training and also to be at least a minimum of 12 years of age. The growing bones in the feet and the ankles need to be fully grown before you can out your full bodyweight on top of the tip of the toe. So here are some of the important tips of getting up on your toes in ballet. The crunch of the foot is one of the most important elements in the ballet releve. The dancer learns how to rise up on her toes and highly crunch both of her feet. So you will notice that her instep is firmly over her toe, her heels are facing one another and roll down and now Royce will demonstrate the same movements on point, demi-plie and rolling through the crunch rise to releve. Roll down through a high crunch and down once again, demi-plié crunch and roll and keeping the knees and roll down.
