If you are in an adult ballet class as a beginner or a returning dancer, every exercise you do will prepare you for getting into pointe shoes, if that is your goal. Every ballet barre exercise, whether focused on the feet or not, will get you ready for pointe shoes. The men in ballet can benefit from this viewpoint, as special foot exercises for pointe strengthen, and refine control. This will increase technical accuracy in allegro (jumps) and help prevent dance injuries.
Starting with your demi and grand plies, your use of correct ballet turnout, core muscles, and ease of the upper back, head and arm movements, all means a great deal about everything else you will do in dance class. If you can do this simple (but not easy!) warm up exercise correctly, to YOUR best ability, you will probably be able to do the entire ballet class with the same control. Someday, if not today.
