3. GRADE 6 BALLET/POINTE DANCERS

There is a slight change in the structure and name of
this class.  Melissa decided to change
the name to: 

Grade 6
Ballet/Pre-Pointe
. 
The last 30 minutes of this class will be dedicated to Pilates-type
exercises along with foot & ankle strengthening exercises.  This will allow for a more balanced body in preparation
for pointe.  Therefore, there will be no
formal pointe assessments for this class. 

 

4.
