Dance: Pointe/ Pre-Pointe - DECEMBER
Start: Thursday, December 6, 2012
Martinsburg , WV 25404
This is an invitation only class. There is no online registration available for this class.
Students 11 years and older who have mastered the foundations of ballet technique will be invited to dance in this advanced class. Pointe dancing requires adequate bone ossification, flexibility, coordination, muscular strength, correct body structure, and strong ballet technique to avoid risk of damaging the fee, knee, and hip joints. An evaluation from a physician indicating appropriate stage of bone growth is strongly recommended before entering the Pointe program. Physician evaluation should be based on a foot x-ray to determine the tips of toes have turned from cartilage to bone.
