the what!

The Pre-Pointe class is required for anyone interested in beginning pointe in the future. All dancers ages 6th grade and up are eligible for the Pre-Pointe class. Dancers must be taking 2-3 Ballet classes (including Pre-Pointe) weekly for a minimum of 2-3 years before beginning pointe. No matter what the age or level, the dancer will have to be evaluated and approved by their pointe teacher before beginning pointe. 

the why!

For the safety of the dancers, it is extremely important to have a full understanding of the physical strength, technique, and commitment that pointe work takes. 

the what to wear!

Girls are required to wear a solid black leotard, pink tights, and pink ballet shoes. Hair is to be pulled back from face and neck and no jewelry of any kind.
