For Pointe, dancers must have reached Intermediate/Advance level, been taking 2-3 ballet classes a week for at least one year and be at least 11 years of age. For the safety of the dancer, teacher recommendation is required for Pointe. Dancers must demonstrate strong core and ankle strength and be able to hold their ballet placement at barre and center. The Pre-Pointe aspect of this class is required of any dancer wishing to go on Pointe in the future. In regular ballet shoes, dancers develop the strength, attention to detail, and skills necessary to work up to going on Pointe.
