Jellybeans Posted May 17, 2012 Share Posted May 17, 2012 This comment appeared on another topic and I thought it was worthy of separate discussion: Posted Yesterday, 09:34 PM Well I think there is a clear message from the top ballet schools in England and France that they expect girls to be on pointe from the beginning of year 7 if they are progressing in line with expectations. RBS always say they expect auditionees to be at the same level as the girls within the school and Afab confirmed that there is a similar view from POBS. I just wondered if this is correct? It was my understanding that pointe starts some way through year 7 at vocational schools and that it is very basic for quite a long time. I also think that it is relatively easy to catch up with pointe at this level if one starts later - as long as the potential is still there. What is the experience of those with children at the uk vocational schools as to when they actually went on pointe? 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
