At Citiline we strive to help students improve their flexibility, strength, coordination, and musicality. We focus on using the entire body as a whole, with equal emphasis placed on body awareness and artistic expression. Our non-syllabus classes are set up in such a way that allows students to learn proper technique while also developing their body awareness.
This class is designed specifically for those students interested in pursuing pointe classes ages 11 plus. Students must have at least 2 years of ballet experience. We help our students focus on foot strength and technique needed for Pointe readiness while continuing to learn the disciplines of ballet. We focus most of our work on proper body alignment and strength needed to pursue the disciplines of pointe work.
This class is for students ages 12 plus. Students must have teacher’s approval before joining this class. They are also required have at least 2 years of ballet experience and taken at least 1 year of pre-pointe. Students must also continue to take a non-pointe ballet technique class (pre-pointe is recommended). This is an hour and a half class designed for both beginner and advanced pointe dancers. The first half of this class will focus on pointe barre work. The second half of the class will move more advanced pointe work away from the barre.
