Our Ballet Classes - Pointe Beginners are an inclusive introduction to pointe work. This beginner course will focus mainly on preparing both your feet and your pointe shoes through strengthening exercises on the floor and at the barre, and individual pointe shoe preparation. Gradually advancing, under the guidance of your tutor to confidently move off the barre and into the centre

This course will run continuously for 1 year to improve your pointe work over time and to gain strength and develop your technique. 

Who is the course suitable for?

All City Academy tutors are experienced professionals from theatre, film/TV and performance industries. So whilst they're training you they may also be rehearsing for a West End show or working on a movie. We like that and we do believe it makes a difference in class.
