This class prepares pupils for going “En Pointe”. Starting Pointe work is not a question of age or physical maturity; readiness depends on strength, technique, attitude and commitment. Pupils will be taught various exercises preparing them to go en pointe at a later date. Once the pupils have gained enough strength and the bones of the feet are fully developed, strengthened and hardened they will get the opportunity. Once en pointe pupils realise their feet look beautiful but it is hard work. Pupils will never be put en pointe before they are physically and mentally ready. We also use props such as therabands and various sized balls. In addition to those we also concentrate on the correct technique for turns. A variety of music is used ranging from The Nutcracker, Disney to up to date chart music.
