Sounds like you are going in the right direction! Just take your time and savor this dance. Its the only way to get the most out of it. If you move to fast than you’ll learn sloppy habits that are hard to get rid of. Practice a lot and you will get to pointe before you know it know. Ballet is a beautiful and complicated dance that you body has to adjust to. Give yourself time to grow.
