This fall Joffrey Ballet dancer Aaron Renteria will be teaching our new Pointe class which will meet Saturdays from 2:00-3:00 pm.

  • The first four weeks of this class, September 7 – 28, will be a pre-pointe class that is open to all students and will focus on strengthening the muscles needed for point work.
  • The remainder of the class, October 5-December 14, will be done on pointe, and participation is by instructor permission only.

The pre-pointe class will give students a chance to prepare themselves for pointe work, but it will also give Aaron an opportunity to assess each student’s ability to go on pointe. If you are interested in taking the pointe classes you should attend the September pre-pointe classes so that Aaron can determine if you can join the pointe class.
