Hi everyone. I’m « new » on pointes after a long break. As i gained weight, my ankles are quite weaker and i struggle with échappés, ect. Is it good or bad tocut the tip to get traction? Or would it be better to keep the tip so i can « slip » easier into positions? Thanks!

Sure, that would be an option to cut the satin off of the tip of the shoe. Many dancers cut the satin off the tip of the shoe. Just be careful not to cut too deeply.
