Pointe work is by many adult ballet students regarded as the test of their technique and ability as well as a 'dream come true'. To help you achieve this, or whatever pointe work means to you, I created the beginner pointe course. The emphasis is on learning the correct technique so that you can improve safely and enjoy dancing en pointe for a long time.

This course is aimed at students that have learned the absolute basics of pointe technique and want to continue to progress in a small group where they can still receive individual attention. 

During this five weeks course you will practice the following:


  • relevés on one and on two leg(s)

  • echappés in 2nd and 4th position 

  • relevés-passés

  • en tournent movements

  • pas de bourrées and balancés

  • piqués 


Although many exercises will still be studied at the barre, we are also going to work on the simpler moves in the centre.


This course is suitable for students:


  • with little pointe work experience 

  • that come back to pointe after a long break

  • who find themselves lost in regular group classes

  • that want to revisit the basics
