The Art of Pointe

For the more advanced Ballet dancer (level 3 or higher; instructor recommendation only; 12 years old+). Dancer must be concurrently enrolled in a minimum of 2 additional Ballet classes (level 3 or higher).

 

These classes incorporate all elements of classical Ballet, with a primary focus on pointe shoes. Exercises and barre work is geared toward strengthening the core muscles, legs and feet. Proper form and elegance with ease are emphasized. Dancers will move to the center to work on classical practices and proper foot placement (in pointe shoes), with the goal of achieving a graceful, yet consistent and solid ability.
