Ballet/Pre-Pointe/pointe:

Begin at the ballet barre using French terminology and continue to the center with across-the-floor work, stretches, jumps and leaps. Our style of teaching is a combination of both the Vaganova and French Technique and focuses on safe and effective training. Dancers will eventually train to dance en pointe once their ankles are properly developed and they have had several years of dedicated ballet training.
