I have a couple that my teacher made us do before we were able to go en pointe:

-ABC's Using just your ankle while sitting on the ground
spell the abc's simple as that.

- Stand up putting most of your weight on one foot. Keeping your toes on the ground and also your heel pull your arch up. It helps strenghthen your ankles lots.

Thats all i can think of right now.
