In our teen/adult Pointe class students will utilize previously learned ballet technique while working in pointe shoes. These exercises focus on strengthening the feet and ankles to enable the student to gracefully and safely perform steps en pointe. Advanced knowledge of ballet technique is a must, as well as participation in a ballet technique class (any level) prior to taking pointe class to ensure the proper warm-up and safety of the student. Participation in Pointe class is always at the discretion of the instructor, and pointe shoes are required.
