This beautiful art form is the natural progression from years of ballet training and study of ballet technique. *See Director for consent to register. Pointe students must take Ballet II/III, preceding the Pointe class, and have consent of the instructor. Pointe shoes required - see Instructor before purchasing Pointe shoes.
