LauraR Posted May 10, 2008 Report Share Posted May 10, 2008 My dd's classes are ending this week. The school has a week off and then offers extended session until SI begins. This year, she has had two days of pointe, 30 min each. She lost some of that pointe work at the end of the year due to recital rehearsal. Now I want her to build up for a 6day/5wk SI experience (her first). The school's extended session is Mon: ballet/modern, Tues-Thurs, ballet/pointe. All ballet is 90 min and modern/pointe is 1 hr. She's in Level 3 and the classes are combined 3/4/5. She can attend 3 weeks before we go on vacation. One suggestion given to me was to do 2 days of pointe the first week, then build up to three for the next weeks. Another was to jump right in because she's going to be doing a lot during SI anyway. I thought I would split the difference and ask here since we're new to this pointe and SI experience! Quote Link to comment
