Pointe technique is the part of classical ballet technique that concerns pointe work, in which a ballet dancer supports all body weight on the tips of fully extended feet within pointe shoes. A dancer is said to be en pointe when the dancer's body is supported in this manner, and a fully extended vertical foot is said to be en pointe when touching the floor, even when not bearing weight. Pointe work is performed while wearing pointe shoes, which employ structural reinforcing to distribute the dancer's weight load throughout the foot, thus reducing the load on the toes enough to enable the dancer to support all body weight on fully vertical feet.

  • Der Spitzentanz oder en pointe (frz. spitz) ist eine Bewegungstechnik im Ballett, die in speziellen Spitzenschuhen ausgeführt wird. Zusammen mit dem Ballettröckchen, dem Tutu, gehört der Spitzentanz seit dem 19. Jahrhundert zur (Klischee-)Vorstellung, die man von einer Ballerina hat. (de)
  • Pointe technique is the part of classical ballet technique that concerns pointe work, in which a ballet dancer supports all body weight on the tips of fully extended feet within pointe shoes. A dancer is said to be en pointe when the dancer's body is supported in this manner, and a fully extended vertical foot is said to be en pointe when touching the floor, even when not bearing weight. Pointe work is performed while wearing pointe shoes, which employ structural reinforcing to distribute the dancer's weight load throughout the foot, thus reducing the load on the toes enough to enable the dancer to support all body weight on fully vertical feet. Pointe technique resulted from a desire for female dancers to appear weightless and sylph-like. Although both men and women are capable of pointe work, it is most often performed by women. Extensive training and practice are required to develop the strength and technique needed for pointe work. Typically, dance teachers consider factors such as age, experience, strength, and alignment when deciding whether to allow a dancer to begin pointe work. (en)
  • Le travail sur pointes est une technique en danse classique qui consiste à danser sur l'extrémité distale, aplatie, du chausson de danse ou pointes (par opposition aux chaussons de danse en demi-pointes appelés « plats »). Par métonymie, le mot désigne aussi les chaussons de danse à semelles renforcées utilisés en danse classique. (fr)
  • Il ballo en pointe (in punta) è una forma di danza che si avvale di una particolare tecnica che consente di eseguire passi sollevandosi sulle punte dei piedi. Normalmente per ballare en pointe si utilizzano specifiche calzature, le cosiddette scarpette da punta, la cui punta una volta rinforzata con il gesso, viene ora solitamente fatta in tela o carta imbevute di resine speciali, e in alcuni rari modelli (scarpette lavabili in lavatrice) anche in sottile vetroresina.Le difficoltà di questo tipo di ballo sono notevoli e richiedono molto studio preliminare per impostare correttamente il corpo e rinforzare tutti i muscoli che servono da sostegno (in modo particolare quelli degli arti inferiori e quelli del tronco). Infatti nonostante l'utilizzo di calzature adeguate, lo studio e la pratica di questa tecnica può provocare dolori e causare seri problemi ai piedi e alla colonna vertebrale. (it)
