What to wear

We recommend wearing clothes that allow you to move that you aren't afraid to sweat in. Consider wearing clothes that allow the instructor to see your lines. Ballet shoes are recommended, but classes can be taken barefoot or in jazz shoes. Pointe shoes may be worn with instructor approval.

This class will consist of ballet technique focusing on stability and mobility exercises at the barre geared toward strengthening legs and feet in preparation for dancing en pointe. Assessment will be made as to readiness for pointe work and students will purchase shoes at this time.

 

Dancers who have previously trained en pointe will increase strength and technique whilst wearing pointe shoes.

 

All dancers will begin class in socks or barefoot for warmup and then progress to technique exercises in pointe shoes or ballet slippers. Class will end with light stretching and strengthening using therabands and balls.
