All pointe classes are designed for students with previous ballet training. Students will utilize previously learned ballet technique while working in pointe shoes. Each class includes barre exercises, center floor work and across the floor combinations. These exercises focus on strengthening the feet and ankles and balancing the entire body weight of the dancer on the tips of their toes.
Pink Leather Split Sole Ballet Shoes
Note: Please be sure to tighten, and double knot, all ballerinas’ ballet shoes. While bows can be cute, shoes that become loose during class can create a safety hazard. Please cut off excess string, and apply a drop of glue to the knot. Dance shoes and our professional dance floor can get damaged if dance shoes are worn outside.
Black Leotards and Pink (transition/regular) Tights | Black Dance Shorts are acceptable.
Note: Students may wear black skirts, black shorts and black jazz pants during appropriate class time.

Note: Girls with hair too short to be tied back should have their hair pinned back out of their faces.
