Pointe

taught by Peggy Wingate


Concentration on preparing the feet and ankles for pointe work through strengthening exercises and technique is the foundation of this class.  A minimum of two years of training in a twice a week classical ballet program will be required before a dancer will be considered for pointe shoes and then only as the instructor feels the dancer is ready physically and mentally for pointe shoes.  The pointe lesson must be accompanied by a classical ballet technique class of an hour and a half in addition to the Pointe class taken each week.  Proper shoe fitting will be guided for each dancer to improve their development.
