Okay, silly question, but is there a rule of thumb on when a pas de bourree is done on pointe vs demi-pointe? For example, in class yesterday, one combination had us move through pas de bourree to fourth as prep for pirouettes, that was done on pointe. Later a combination ended with tombe, pas de bouree, glissade, saut de chat, and the teacher didn't specify but everyone did the pas de bourree on demi-pointe. It was certainly *easier* to build speed, but was that correct?

Both are correct. It depends on what the teacher or choreographer wants.
