Once a term we give you the opportunity to sit in and watch the ballet dance classes. We find this really helps with encouraging the children to perform to an audience and gives the dancers confidence. It's also great for you to see progress in the ballerinas. En Pointe are proud of our quality dance teaching and we have nothing to hide.

RAD exams

En Pointe also has a 100% pass rate for its RAD exams which is a world recognised classical ballet syllabus. One of the most highly respected qualifications in Ballet. for 2 years running all exam students received the highest marks in Gold and Silver medals.

Ballet is a great way for your child to keep fit, strengthen core muscles and a lovely way for him/her to use their imagination through the magical world of dance. At En Pointe we encourage the dancers to do their best in class. The dancers gain a sense of self-confidence and pride in their bodies. They can accomplish anything through practice.

Dance performance

Here at En Pointe, we love to host a dance performance every year on the stage at Joseph Rowntree Theatre. All children and teenagers are encouraged to take part and perform to an audience of friends and family. It is a fantastic opportunity and a memory that lasts forever and not to be missed.

We believe dance is for everyone, no matter your ability or age so feel free to book a class today and enjoy a trial class to see what we are all about, and why En Pointe should be your first choice for ballet classes in York.
