Pre-Pointe: An introduction to Pointe (ballet dancing performed on the toes using special shoes). Students must be at least 11 years of age, concurrently enrolled in Ballet and have had a minimum of 5 years Ballet instruction. This class will teach students proper foot and ankle strengthening exercises to prepare them for pointe work. They will learn about pointe shoes and gradually work up to doing basic pointe exercises at the barre.
