Pointe work in classical ballet is formalized by pointe technique. It is performed in pointe shoes. Pointe technique means that ballet dancer performs on the tips of fully extended feet and in this way ballet dancer supports all body weight.

Ballet dancer must have great strength and good technique to be able to do pointe work. Dancers have to dance for a few years before they can start practice pointe technique.
