Get To The Pointe!
Pointe is appropriate when a student is ready to graduate to the hard shoes and dance on the pointe of their feet. This takes years of preparation to graduate to this level. Students are able to take pointe only after age 11 or when the growth plate in their feet have stopped growing. PDS teachers will evaluate each student as to when he/she is ready for pointe. There is a 2 class per week minimum in ballet class for a student to take pointe.
