You're lucky to have a teacher who actually discriminates about who can do pointe and who can't!. Some people aren't ready for it and some just aren't made for it, and to push your body into something that's so unnatural to begin with can be very damaging!. The test will probably have to do with your turnout, alignment, posture and leg & core muscle strength!. All of those are necessary to learn pointe safely, although it still is bad for your body!. Remember, be careful, don't push yourself too far, and listen to your teacher (it sounds like you have a good one!)Www@QuestionHome@Com

ummm!.!.!. maybe it'll be on balancing!. but not the splits!.!.!.that has nothing to do with being on pointe!.!.!.!.!.!.
The owner of the studio probably just wants to keep you there (paying) for as long as she can!.!.!.!.!.but if you want to do pointe!.!.!.DO IT!
If you have enough will and talent and passion!.!.!.you should pass easily!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

Dont stress!.

Im sure it will be easy!. actually it would have to be really easy!. beacuse when you first start pointe you do really simple steps!. so this test will be a breeze!. trust your teacher and keep telling yourself that you can do it!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

I really don't think it would be the splits and they aren't going to make you balance for any longer than you would in a normal class!. I wouldn't stress, if your teacher says that your ready then you'll do fine on what ever they ask you do for this test!. If you're worried then ask your teacher to show you what you'll be doing and ask her to help you!. If she believes in you, like she seems to, then she'll be glad to help!. P!.S!. If you teacher is a guy then ask a female teacher at the school for help!.
I've never heard of a physical test to get point shoes before!. That's kind of odd!.Www@QuestionHome@Com
