I have not seen it in stores, Stephanie, but I have read the magazine. I think it is a very good one for young dancers!

locally (in the seattle area) they do carry it at borders books and music. borders actually has a pretty good selection of dance related magazines, books, and video/dvds.

Here in tampa bay Florida we have it at Barnes and Noble's I get it every once in awhile. This month has some beautiful pictures of ballerinas in their favorite tutus! I also like the monthly feature that shows what many prominent ballerinas keep in their dance bags :)

Oh and i forgot to add, I believe there is a thing in this issue about the different styles of buns, and other ways to wear you hair.

I think it is well done, overall, and you could certainly get an idea of whether or not you'd like to subscribe by checking their website, www.pointemagazine.com

It's a nice magazine, aimed generally at younger readers, and the pics are great. Last time I checked, the subscription price was very reasonable.

I highly recommend Pointe. I have purchased/subscribed and avidly read every issue. The general audience of the magazine does seem to be for younger (yet, mature) readers, but in this aspect it does report some helpful and interesting information. Such as their columns on what's in "dancer's name" dance bag and fridge. In an art where knowledge is aquired through the generations and from personal experience, I find articles such of these helpful to those of us who do not have these "live resources" at our fingertips. There are also beautiful pictures and (what seems to be) unbaised articles on companies, schools, performances, etc.
