Pre-Pointe

For pre-pointe clases, students are required to have proper spine alignment, ankle strength, proper foot pointing technique, ability to hold turnout from the hips, a well elevated releve on demi pointe with straight knees, and correct distribution of body weight. Students also require the emotional maturity level necessary for hard work and commitment that pointe entails. Pre-pointe will include exercises in demi pointe to strengthen calf muscles, ankles, and arches of the feet.
