I am 43 and just started pointework 3 months ago! It has been a long time coming! I LOVE dance and have dabblied in it my whole life. I always figured my dream of dancing en pointe was dead, though - since I had passed the usual age when this occurs. But now - I thank the good Lord every time I put on those pointe shoes! So, ladies!...it's not too late! If I can do it - you can too!:)

Congratulations! I love stories like this. I'd love to do pointe some day too. How many classes a week do you take?

Oh you are so sweet! Thank you! I take one technique and one private pointe class each week. Plus, I practice at home each day. (I have a LOT of catching up to do! :)

Congratulations! Like you I am older too 45. I have been doing adult recreational ballet for years. I finally made the decision if I was ever going to get on-pointe I would need to start taking privates. So that is what I am doing beginning this fall. I can't wait!

Oh I was so happy to read your comment! That is WONDERFUL! I know you will enjoy it as much as I do! :) (May I recommend Gaynor Mindon pointe shoes? They are so kind to feet of our age!) Let's keep dancing, shall we? :)
