Starting pointe work is a special milestone in a ballerina’s life. Dancing on your toes requires tremendous strength of the legs and feet.

At 4SDC, our ballet teachers have strict requirements for starting pointe work. Pointe work is hard work. Beginning pointe classes will be more demanding on your body, especially your feet. All dancers should be formally evaluated by their ballet teacher to determine if they are physically ready to meet the demands of pointe work. We will evaluate for correct body position and alignment, sufficient turnout, strength and balance, and mastery of basic ballet techniques.
