snow Posted October 8, 2008 Report Share Posted October 8, 2008 What do you think of dedicated prepointe classes? Can dancers start them at any age, or should they wait until dancers are eleven or twelve? Are they needed only for the year immediately prior to going on pointe, or are they useful even before that if a dancer is younger or still has other technique improvements to do? Should they always follow a technique class or is it fine to take them alone? Do they take the place of a third weekly technique class or should they just be extra? If they are about muscle strengthening, is it better to take two a week than one? Some seem to require special shoes and some don't, some are different lengths of time, some are combined with technique class, some are separate. Some schools seem to go directly to pointe classes without a prepointe stage. I am confused. I would appreciate learning more about the prepointe/pointe situation. Thanks, Snow Quote Link to comment
