Pointe/Preparation & Conditioning

6th Grade and Older w/ permission 
Pointe class can be taken on flat or in pointe shoes at the instructors discrection. All pointe classes are designed for students with previous ballet training (summer pointe prep is required for newly promoted pointe students). Students will utilize previously learned ballet technique while working in pointe shoes. Each class includes barre exercises, center floor work and across the floor combinations. These exercises focus on strengthening the feet and ankles.  Dancers are promoted to pointe as they are ready, not necessarily as a whole class. Dancers must supply their own exercise band, tennis ball and yoga block.

Class Key Features and Benefits:

  • Technical skills in center floor and across-the-floor are introduced and drilled
  • Choreography is taught and reviewed at the end of class to challenge dancer retention
  • Technical difficulty is increased throughout the year as dancers master current skills
  • Class Observation without disruption through Closed Circuit Television
  • Class performs in both the winter and spring recitals
