I've been to lots of ballet auditions, and all of them had me dance en pointe!. The only way to be sure is to check the website of the company or studio whose intensive you're auditioning for and see if it asks that you bring pointe shoes!. If it doesn't say, bring them anyway just in case the teacher has the girls do pointework!. The difficulty of the audition really depends on how old you are and where you're auditioning for!. The name of the company or studio and your approximate age (I know some people aren't comfortable giving their age online) would really help me answer that!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

what you should do is becuase ballet and piont are two different classes bring bothe reg!. ballet shoes adn piont shoes!. auditions i have gone to are not hard but i have never auditioned as a piont dancer i take piont but haven't in cluded it on my resume!.Www@QuestionHome@Com
