It depends on your personal strength and natural ability. Discuss with your instructor to see how close you are and set goals together.

Did your teacher give you exercises to work on (i.e. releves, foot rolls, etc)?

I'm not the one who does ballet...my older sis does but she hasn't started ballet yet. If she starts this fall how long will it take for her to reach pointe?

Generally it will take about 2 year of class, and over 10 years old. Because people who allowed under 10 years old, cause a great deal of trouble later. Like knee and back trouble. Its real cute to see a very little girl on point, but you better change school, because your teacher is very wrong. Hope thats help...god luck.

No, I am not a pro ballet dancer, but I do take class when I was younger. I did about 13 years of ballet, in one of the first school of ballet here in Montreal. I love it very much, and I start at age 17 with the little girls of 6 or 7. I fell strange with the very young children...but I want to know so much about dancing...well it's just great...Keep on dancing... bye bye!
