When I was 13 I had to quit ballet due to a foot injury, I am now 18 and dance competitively in lyrical, contemporary, jazz, and tap. My studio I am at now does not teach ballet and I recently found an adult ballet class that starts in a couple weeks and am so excited! I intensely trained in ballet for 8 years and due to injury had to quit before pointe training. I really want to get pointe shoes and start that training in the next few months. Is it too late for me to get pointe shoes??? I train 4 times a week and have strong ankles and a good arch.
