Introductory Pointe Workshop
Progressing onto pointe is one of the biggest rites of passage a young dancer faces. It is often a very exciting time, however, it is also very challenging time. The excitement of that shiny new pair of shoes is often quickly soured with the onset of pain and blisters, but it does not have to be this way. Given a slow and careful preparation, along with a detailed assessment of the dancer, before pointe work is introduced, it can be one of the most amazing times and opens up a whole new world of possibilities in dance.
During this two hour Pointe workshop we will discuss:
- The importance of a pre-pointe assessment
- Essential elements to screen before progressing onto pointe
- Anatomical variations that will impact pointe work
- How to choose the right pointe shoe based on the biomechanics of the foot
- Preparatory exercises that will give the student excellent basic pointe technique
