Pointe is the signature of the ballerina. It requires perfect body alighment, strength, an elastic plie, the ability to work effectively turned out and excellent balance. Learning to dance on pointe is a long and arduous process requiring many hours at the barre and daily effort. It requires 100% committment. We require that the student take, at minimum, 3 technique classes per week in addition to pointe. Your child's instructor will inform you when your child is ready to begin pointe work.
