Pointe classes are reserved for intermediate to advanced students of ballet technique who have received instructor approval. Pointe is exceptionally demanding on the dancer’s body, which means that several aspects must be considered before beginning.
Dancing en pointe is meant to showcase the artist’s ability to appear weightless or as if they are dancing on air. Accomplished dancers make the technique look easy, but years of training are required to achieve this effect. It’s crucial for dancers to develop strong feet, ankles and legs before beginning their en pointe training. Additionally, the instructor must ensure that the student understands proper alignment and foot placement throughout their practice.
Dancers typically may begin the study of pointe technique when they are between 11 and 14 years of age. It’s at this age that the bones of the feet are sufficiently strong and well-developed enough to allow the dancer to safely practice en pointe without permanently harming the feet.
Proper pointe or toe shoes with a hardened toe box are required for this class. Students who have a sufficient grasp of ballet technique, can sustain turnout during combinations and have several years of training may be eligible to study pointe at DanceHouse Miami.
