Advanced ballet students, which have developed strength and technique, are invited to join our Pointe Class to take their ballet skills to the next level. 

Pointe technique is part of the classical ballet technique in which a ballet dancer supports body weight on the tips of their fully extended feet within pointe shoes.

Pointe class is a highly focused class which requires discipline and dedication.

A minimum level of grade 5 ballet is required to join Pointe Class.  Ballet dancers will be invited by their class teacher when they have met the required skill set.  

Once invited, this will be run alongside their ballet programme.
