Pointe/Pre-Pointe

Our Pointe/Pre-Pointe classes are beginning level pointe classes focused on pairing healthy alignment with beneficial muscle memory to prevent injury & unnecessary strain. Pointe is a serious endeavor. Dancers must train at least twice a week for 3 to 5 years, be at least 11 yrs old & have a series of other requirements fulfilled before they can begin training "sur les pointes" in a safe/healthy manner.
