No. The feet don't get messed up unless she does pointe for years upon years.

She won't really do it at three don't worry. It will take awhile before she's actually doing ballet.

No. Ballet doesn't mess up your feet, pointe does. And she won't be even offered to do pointe for awhile. I was doing ballet for 11 years before I started pointe at 14. My mom was a dance teacher so technically I started dancing at 2, but wasn't actually put in class until 3.

She'd have to be a serious competition dancer for any reputable studio to teach her pointe, so if its just a fun thing to do she'll likely just stand on the balls of her feet.

No, going on pointe is what messes up feet and they don't do that until 10 or older. My DD has been in ballet and tap since she was 3 (she's 7 1/2 now) and she's had no foot problems whatsoever.

pointe is when your feet get messed up. Just make sure she has good shoes and if she ever goes to point that she is properly supported.

I know I can't make it be her passion but maybe if she start early, it will become her passion, but I don't want on day for her feet to be Fuckt up cuz of my fault..kwim

No, my DD started at 2. They don't go en pointe until around 12 I believe, and after a lot of experience.
