Pointe Instruction

Dancers are placed en pointe when Ballet Petit staff consider the dancer to have reached a level where pointe can be studied safely, and that the dancer’s alignment is ready for the new demands on the body.
Dancers must always take a technique class immediately preceding their pointe class. After Pointe 1, dancers are encouraged to also take a lower level regular class en pointe.
