Beautifully pointed feet are a goal of all ballet dancers. The secret to a great point lies in the instep of your foot, the top part between your ankle and your toes. A beautiful point has an exaggerated instep...it sticks up high when your foot is pointed.

Some dancers are blessed with the ability to point their feet correctly without much effort. Dancers with longer feet or thinner ankles appear to have prettier pointed feet.
