Description Benefits Samples
Pointe - Level 1- A Year Long Training Guide is a multimedia reference system for introducing dancers to the art and science of dancing en pointe. The program includes a multi faceted screening system to determine the dancer's readiness for pointe and identify areas of individual focus. Strengthening exercises and traditional pointe exercises are provided in a progressive format to help dancers succeed at pointe work and reduce their chances for dance related injuries or compensation issues. Informational materials are also provided for dancers and their parents to further educate everyone on what is expected and required for a successful transition to dancing en pointe.
The program is designed to follow Pre-Pointe, A Year Long Training Guide. The information presented in that system is built upon, but not repeated in this program. Pointe - Level 1, A Year Long Training Guide is designed to provide material for at least 50 - sixty minute classes. The classes are balanced between strength and alignment work, traditional ballet work and specific pointe training.
