Pointe Jumpstart

Ages 11 and up

For dancers who are interested in starting pointe, or have recently started pointe, this is an opportunity to focus on your strength and technique to get a jump start on your school year pointework! The program will augment ballet class with training focused on building foot strength and articulation, core strength, and more. It is ideal for dancers who have started pointe in the last year or two and want to gain confidence in their pointe shoes, and for dancers who are interested in starting pointe and want to build the necessary strength and skill to bring their goal closer! Dancers will receive an individualized assessment of their pointe readiness or their pointe technique at the end of the program.
