Pre-Pointe & Pointe
Teacher Placement required for Pre-Pointe and Pointe
Pointe dancing is an elite form of ballet, requiring years of training and dedication. While appearing light and ethereal, the dancer must be extremely strong. She has to have the technical skill to align her muscles and bones perfectly over the toes of one foot (about a square inch) while making it look effortless. Only students with the proper strength and dedication should go on pointe. Well trained, and with properly fitted shoes, a pointe student can progress from pre-pointe work to an advanced level with no ill effects.
At FDS Pointe Classes are offered in four levels; class placement is determined by age, skill level, and students often repeat levels until they have achieved mastery.
* Classes are subject to change or be canceled based on studio enrollment and teacher requirements. Enrolled participants of changed or canceled classes will be provided with alternative class options.
