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.  POINTE SHOE FITTINGS

MKDA is organizing a pointe shoe fitting day for all dancers who require new pointe shoes.  Any dancer who is currently enrolled in our pointe ballet programs and who already have a pair of pointe shoes can book a time with Melissa to purchase new shoes.  If you have outgrown your shoes or if they simply don’t feel right anymore, please book a time with Melissa.
