Definition: The point of the foot. Point refers to how far the heel is raised off the floor in a releve. Quarter point is with the heel just off the floor; three-quarter point is a straight line from the knee to the ball of the foot. Demi-pointe is halfway between. Sur les pointes is on the tips of the toes — literally.
