Traditional Ballet Pointe Series: Beginner - Advanced
Our “Traditional Ballet: Pointe Series” is designed for dancers with previous ballet training through our Level 4, or equivalent, and adequate ankle, calf, and arch strength. It is advised that they are currently taking ballet class either through our “Traditional Ballet Series” or through a studio multiple days per week. To prevent injury, it is necessary that students possess proper posture, utilization of correct muscles in turnout, a well-elevated relevé on demi-pointe, and correct distribution of body weight—both on two legs and on one.
Students will utilize previously-learned ballet technique while working in pointe shoes. Each level includes barre exercises, center floor work, and across-the-floor-combinations. Dancers must be knowledgeable in all the ballet terminology and techniques through our “Pointe: Intermediate” level to properly utilize this video. In the advanced level dancers will work exclusively en pointe. Exercises will be at the barre, in the center, and some across the floor. They are learning professional-level movements and intricate footwork patterns.
