Pointe is the most highly disciplined and physically challenging extension of ballet. Only technically proficient upper level dancers who have mastered the skills of basic and advanced move-ment will be selected to study pointe work. Physicality, stamina, stability and strength will all be considered criteria. It is a requirement that all new pointe students register for a minimum of two C. Ballet F./PMT classes per week in order to keep up with the technical demands.
