I would do a lot of articulating through the foot!. do one at a time first, then do both at the same time!. a good one is to plie onto releve and push up!. do it slowly!. Do lots of eleves and and releves slowly and then do them fast!. therebands also help too!. roll through the foot on them a couple times!. Pointe is fun but painful! Try to develope some callasis before you go on!.Www@QuestionHome@Com
