Our introductory series is designed to support and enhance a child’s motor development, integrated movement and kinesthetic awareness that is beneficial in any movement-related activity. Since the curriculum is developmentally rooted, placement is more likely to be age-related than any of our other series of classes. Our instructors have created a robust program to make sure our young dancers grow strong and healthy as they advance as well as help them develop correct technique to minimalize injuries as they get into our ballet and modern programs.
Our Pointe Series consists of Pre-Pointe, Beginning Pointe, Pointe 1, Pointe 2 and Partnering and/or Variations. Typically while in Ballet 2 a dancer will gain enough strength and control of their rotators and core muscles to begin to prepare for pointe. Developmentally, no dancer may start en pointe before the age of 10, as their bones will not have solidified enough for it to be safe. Dancers must also maintain two ballet technique classes per week in order to maintain the necessary strength for any of the Pointe Series classes.
