Pointe work classes

Perfect your ballet dancing skills with pointe work.

Our classes are a fun and welcoming introduction to Pointe focusing on developing your strength and confidence in dancing in Pointe shoes. You will start by strengthening the feet along with your ankles and by learning how to prepare your feet and shoes for pointe work. All work in Pointe shoes will be done with the support of the barre before progressing further to support the student. You will be guided by your experienced and trained dance teacher, to support you in the dance class.

In this Ballet course you will receive:

  • An introduction to Pointe and wearing Pointe shoes

  • Exercises to strengthen core, feet and ankles

  • Expert advice on which Pointe shoes to buy and breaking them in
