If you are not one of the lucky few with naturally-beautiful ballet feet, the following tutorial will help you learn how to properly point your toes. If you follow the steps correctly and often, you may soon have the prettiest points in your class.
- Sit on the floor with your legs out in front of you and your knees straight. (If your hamstrings feel tight, lean back further, supporting your back with your elbows.)
- Flex your feet by pulling your toes up toward your body. Try to point your toes up to the ceiling. Don't worry if your heels rise up off the floor.
