Ah the timeless question for those of us not gifted with fabulous pointes from our genetics! Similar to building flexibility in other areas of the body, working on passive range of motion and active range of motion go hand in hand. Sarah’s Twinkle Toes covers a bit of both. Another field who work tirelessly on not only the aesthetics of a pointe but also the strength needed are ballet dancers. An exploration of ankle workout videos geared towards dancers would be a great place to start. Or even a beginner adult ballet class or barre! Great cross training, works similar muscles groups, and can’t hurt polishing your lines!
