Dancer: Tahlia Lukeman – 2012-2013
Dancing on the tip of the toes can be hard, especially in Irish Dancing. While Ballet en-pointe technique is similar in many ways, it varies greatly due to the cornered and flat tip of heavy shoes/hard shoes. This prevents a dancer from ‘rolling’ up as a ballet dancer would do, meaning that they need to either jump to pointe or step onto it.
