Intro/1

Has it been a while since you last slipped on your dancing shoes? Are you totally new to this? Not to fear, that’s exactly why we offer Introductory (Level 1) classes! Even if you have extensive dance experience, this is usually the best place to start - so you can review technique basics, get reacquainted with the language, and build a solid foundation from which you can fly!

POINTE CLASSES

 

BL Pre Pointe

With emphasis on correct alignment and ballet technique, we concentrate on strengthening those legs for days! Class focus will be on feet and ankle conditioning at the barre, in the centre and utilizing Thera-Bands. Soft ballet slippers are to be worn in this class. 

Class Prerequisite: BL Level 2 and up. * We recommend taking the technique class prior so you are properly warmed up and for injury prevention.

BL Pointe

Clients must be assessed by our BL Instructors and approved in order to participate. 

All exercises will focus on building strength in the ankles and feet at the barre. The decision of whether one is ready to go on pointe is determined by assessing the client’s strength and physical development.

* We encourage our Clients to take an BL adult ballet class prior to taking the pointe class for the safety of you and your body.
