Pointe Dance Classes
Pointe classes at the Dancenter are traditional Russian-basis dance classes for dancers age 10 and over, and having at least 2 years of ballet training. Each dancer must be evaluated before she may begin Pointe. We offer graded levels of Pointe based on the dancers age, physical development and training. The younger classes emphasize basic pointe skills and proceed very gradually at the barre until strength and stability improve. As the students become stronger more complicated center floor activities are given. At the advanced level, Pointe class is an intensive session in which excerpts from female variations from classical repertoire are studied, and virtuosity is mastered.
