Pre-Pointe:

For participants 9th-12th grade.  Pre-Pointe classes are a prerequisite to Pointe classes. The decision to go on pointe is pretty serious, it should be a well thought out decision. Many factors go into play; including the dancer's ballet technique, strength, mobility of the ankles and feet, core control, turn out, bone development and the dancers maturity. Students should be taking 3+ ballet classes a week to be properly prepared for moving onto pointe. This is great for the instructors to see who is serious and who is prepared for taking the transition from pre pointe to pointe, and who is not prepared. Students should also have an assessment by their dance instructor or a health professional who specializes in dance health before moving into pointe. This process is also a great learning experience for students already on pointe to highlight any areas they need to improve on or are lacking in.
