The Pointe Dance Studio

Pre-school Combo


In this hour class, students around the ages of 3-4 will be introduced to the basics of Tap, Jazz, Ballet, and Acrobats, in an age appropriate manner.  Each hour class will consist of two 30-minute sessions of either Tap and Acrobats, or Jazz and Ballet.


Beginner Combo


This hour class is designed to take students age 5-6 to the next level.  These students have mastered the basics and are ready to start learning more technique in all areas of dance. Each hour class will consist of two 30-minute sessions of either Tap and Acrobats, or Jazz and Ballet.


Advanced Beginner


Advanced Beginner level classes are for students ages 7-8 to transition from our combo classes.  They combine two areas of dance, so students can concentrate on developing their technique in each. One class includes ballet and acrobats, another class includes jazz and tap, and a third teaches musical theater and hip hop.


Technique classes

These classes are for students ages 9 and older and offer instruction in one specific area. These classes are available to all students, including those who are not interested in competition team or for those who want additional practice in one technique.


Competition technique

These classes are available for those students who have auditioned and been placed on The Pointe Competition Team. Auditions are held in August each year.
