Pre-Pointe/Pointe (by teacher recommendation only)
Pre-Pointe and Pointe are extensions of our Ballet program. Students must have continuous, previous ballet training and adequate physical strength especially in their ankles and feet. Students wishing to be enrolled in Pre-Pointe or go on Pointe must be enrolled in a ballet class and our Strength and Flexibility class. Students will be ready for Pointe at different ages.
Note: Pointe is not a requirement and will be individually determined by our faculty's professional opinion. Pointe is added to a student's Ballet lesson as she progresses and her programs become more intensified. Individual progress will vary and depends largely on a student's class attendance and hard work.
