First and foremost, width: auto%;" UDDT believes in the importance of your child’s well-being and future. Students are introduced to Pointé only after their feet, legs and bone structure have begun to mature and only after several years of serious, quality training that has developed the appropriate muscles. If I feel that the student is not yet ready for Pointé, please realize that it is with the student’s best interest in mind.
Typically, professional ballet schools around the world do not begin serious ballet training until the age of 9 or 10, when the student is physically and mentally prepared to begin the disciplines of classic training. True progress is made very slowly and consists not only of new steps and combinations, but also repetitions of the basics needed to acquire strength, correct body placement grace and technical mastery. Attendance in class at each level is absolutely mandatory for optimum progress and advancement to the next level
Class designed to help students work as a team, learning and competing against their peers and judges. Students will learn to pick up choreography quickly and apply what they’ve learned in dance conventions. These classes were developed for the more serious dancer seeking a progressive curriculum. Director or instructor approval is needed. Class is available for students ages 11–18.
