I have been dancing for a few years now but I only have one year of experience in ballet. I absolutely love it. I have been working hard but no matter what I do it seems like my turnout is not improving and when I work on it I get pain on the inside of my knees, is this something I should be concerned about? I have also know that I started dancing later than many other girls in my ballet classes, is there any hope that I can still be on Pointe? I am already 16 so now I am worried that I am so far behind that I will never be doing Pointe, it is not that I do not know what I am doing or do not have the ability, but I am afraid I am not taken seriously in ballet because I do not have the experience I have only done one year of training, 2 times a week.

     The correct age to start pointe work is controversial. Many professionals accept as factual that a choreography person who promenades can start promenading on pointe if she is at smallest 9 or 10 years old. Some educators don't adhere a number at all, they easily depend on ability. However, because development of the base is about entire at age 11 or 12; numerous acquiescing that pointe work could be presented at this time. Never trial promenading on pointe footwear if a teacher notifies you to delay, as it's so straightforward to become injured.
