Levels 5A – 8, Girls
Full Term: September - June
A unique and specialized technique, pointe work allows female students to explore this extension of ballet. Pointe work demands a specific physical strength and flexibility in the structure of the student’s foot, as well as overall strength in ballet technique. This class is available to students in Ballet Level 5A or higher by invitation from our teaching staff. Students enrolled in any level of Pointe class must take two additional Ballet technique classes per week with the RWB School. Registration for Pointe classes is upon discretion of the RWB School Artistic faculty.
The Importance of Taking More Than One Class:
Students who wish to intensify their training should take more than one class (where available) in their chosen style. Students taking more than one class per week, including one of each of the different dance styles, will enjoy crossover benefits. The posture, strength and body awareness developed in Ballet will enhance the development of Jazz technique. The musicality and body coordination developed in Tap will reinforce the work in Jazz discipline, and the flexibility developed in Jazz will assist in Ballet. All dance study will help Musical Theatre, and Musical Theatre will enable the dancer to find a voice for movement. Lyrical and Hip Hop will further develop the dancer’s style and versatility.
