Ballet is the foundation of dance and encompasses poise, strength, technique, and grace. Our ballet classes follow the well-respected Cecchetti syllabus. Students are encouraged to take at least two ballet classes per week to enhance their training. Examinations are offered. Pointe Classes are offered for the serious ballet student.
Pointe classes are offered for the serious ballet student. Each student must be in at least Cecchetti III and invited into a Pre-Pointe class. The Pre-Pointe class will help dancers develop the strength and flexibility needed to endure the demands of pointe work. There are four stages that must be successfully passed. Once all four stages are passed, the dancer will be sent for x-rays with a note for the doctor as to what we are looking for.
Once the dancer has been cleared to dance en pointe, only then will they be permitted to purchase pointe shoes. The director often attends the first pointe shoe fitting with the dancer.
