Pointe 3/4 is for the dancer who has 4 to 5 years experience. In this class a balance of barre excercises and center work is important to continue the proper progression. Attendance is extremely important in pointe work to help with muscle retention. Students in this class have the opportunity of additional performances in BDC’s annual productions of the Nutcracker Suite and Festival of Dance with additional consideration given for solo or demi-solo roles.
This class has a required curriculum as part of the Intensive Division Program. Two ballet classes, 2 pointe classes, as well as enrichment classes in modern and jazz technique a week are required. Additional enrichment classes available include Hip Hop, Tap and Acro. Dancers must be at least 12 to 18 years old to be enrolled in this class.
The IDP syllabus is designed to properly prepare the serious student in a logical and safe progression of skills. Although each dancer progresses differently, successful completion of this class can take as long as 2 years.
