Ha, congrats!
I hope you have/had a great fitting and that you'll have a great first pointe class.

Any tip? mmh, don't do a pirouette at the first class...my butt really hurt :P

Congrats! You will want to ask your teacher what you are allowed to wear for padding because my teacher only allows lambs wool and personally thats better because then you can really feel the floor and you don't sit in the box of the shoe.Questions?

Congrats!! I started pointe a few months ago. When you are first starting out it is going to seem soooo boring, you may not even get over your box. But have faith, it gets soooo fun! Happy dancing!

I got my shoes but it hurts in one foot. They fit well but yeah they hurt a little. Is it because I haven't broken into them or because i have weak ankles/toes? or is it just meant to hurt.

Well, I'd say it depends on where you feel the pain and how you feel it.. There are hundreds of different kinds of pain so it's hard to answer without further information..

Maybe you could give a bit more input on where exactly you feel the pain and maybe you can try to explain it? Is it e.g muscular or around the bones somewhere or a question of streching?!

BUT, next to all leads you can get online, you should definetly talk to your teacher, just to be sure that everything is ok.. Because in the end nobody on the board can have a direkt look....
