This 7 week Beginner Pointe workshop focuses on correct alignment and posture to enable safe beautiful pointe work. We begin each class in bare feet, spending 15 minutes on strengthening exercises for the toes, feet and calves. We then put on our pointe shoes for simple barre exercises and slowly work up your skills until you are ready to dance very simple enchainements in the center.
At least 3 years of (recent) ballet training.
Currently taking ballet classes regularly at a Beginner Plus to Elementary level.
