  17. The point is, roles like Bottom in Ashton's The Dream and the stepmother in Nureyev's Cinderella, adds a comic touch by dancing on pointe. Also there are works like La Maison de Bernarda by Mats Ek where the mother (played by a male dancer) wears pointe to show the power she has in the family. I know some male dancers do practice on pointe to strengthen their technique. But if you see Ashton Edwards's Instagram, it is a totally different meaning. https://www.instagram.com/ashtonedwards14/ Dancing beautifully, gracefully on pointe means a lot to this dancer. It is very interesting to see the hashtag #menonpointe on Instagram and see various male dancers training pointe technique and dancing on pointe in many styles. They are trying to break the sterotype of gender in dance, and it is important that the ballet school recognizes the importance of formal training on pointe.
