Ballet Classes - Pointe

Ballet Classes - Pointe

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. 

Ballet Classes - Pointe - Course Content


In this Ballet course you will receive:

  • An introduction to Pointe and wearing Pointe shoes
  • Exercises to strengthen core, feet and ankles
  • Expert advice on which Pointe shoes to buy and breaking them in

Who is the course suitable for?


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.

What to bring?


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.

Ballet Classes – Pointe Venues


Ballet Classes – Pointe tutors


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.
