Pointe Preparation & Ballet Conditioning
Thursday's 6:30pm - 7:15pm
This class is suitable for students preparing to go onto Pointe or those already on Pointe. In this class students will begin by strengthening their feet and ankles with a focus on technical accurancy.
This class will also include ballet conditioning to ensure students build strength, not only in their ankels and feet, but their whole body ensuring students are stable and supported as they progress to dancing on pointe.
Students will do atleast six months training without pointe shoes before their strength and technique is assessed to go onto pointe. Pointe shoes can be dangerous, please do not buy pointe shoes until instructed. Students must be taking atleast one ballet class a week in addition to this class for safety reasons.
