En Pointe (Pointe) means "on the tips of the toes" and is a part of classical ballet technique made possible by specially reinforced shoes called Pointe shoes or toe shoes. The technique developed from the desire for dancers to appear weightless and sylph-like and has evolved to enable dancers to dance on the tips of their toes for extended periods of time.It takes considerable strength in the feet, ankle, leg, knee, and abdomen to dance en Pointe. Students must be at least 12 years of age before attempting Pointe work because bones and growth plates in the feet are usually not fully hardened and developed prior to this age. Serious foot deformities can result from starting Pointe too early even if the student is otherwise strong and skillful. Attempting to dance en Pointe before the feet and toes are fully grown can cause career-ending damage that will prevent dancing en Pointe for a lifetime.
