Event Details

This one day practical workshop is designed to increase a ballet teacher’s confidence and knowledge of teaching pointe work to students at different stages of training.

The workshop charts preparation and training progressions which underpin the requisites of vocational level pointe work. Participants will be introduced to, and explore through demonstration, the vocabulary of pointe work from Intermediate Foundation through to more advanced levels of training. Examples of training exercises which prepare students for the progressive demands of pointe work, as well as strategies for implementing training exercises, will be explored.
