Perfect your Ballet skills with this classic Ballet style.
Our courses are a fun and welcoming introduction to Pointe focusing on developing your strength and confidence in dancing in Pointe shoes. You will begin by strengthening the feet and ankles and by learning how to prepare your feet and shoes for pointe-work. All work in Pointe shoes will be done with the support of the barre before progressing, with the guidance of your tutor, to support yourself in the centre.
In this Ballet course you will receive:
This course for those with previous Ballet experience - Pointe shoes will only be worn when the tutor feels the students are strong enough.
For those new to Ballet or with little experience try our Beginners or Improvers Ballet courses before progressing onto our Pointe classes.
Please purchase a pair of Pointe shoes before your first class.
With Pointe shoes we recommend having a professional Pointe shoe fitting - you can do this in London at one of the following stores:
Also please remember to bring ribbon and elastic. With Pointe classes it is important to look after your feet; we recommend purchasing some of the following: animal wool, ouch pouches, toe pads and tape. Not sure what to buy? Speak to your shoe fitter.
Absolutely fantastic! The teacher was great and gave us confidence and managed to give personal feedback to each person in the class.
Tutor was brilliant! She explained everything really clearly and I made so much progress over the course. Most importantly her class was really fun!
Great tutor! She played to our strengths as a class and made lessons really enjoyable.
