South Carolina Dance Company Provides Excellent Instruction in Pointe
Pointe is a vital part of ballet technique, and it is made possible by specific shoes that are reinforced called pointe shoes. Pointe shoes enable dancers to dance on the tips of their toes for extended durations of time.
In addition, It takes tremendous strength to be a good Pointe dancer. A dancer must work very hard to develop their feet, ankles, knees, legs, and abdomen to endure the body’s weight during the controlled and precise dance movements.
Excellent Pointe technique makes a ballet dancers appear weightless on the floor, allowing for free flowing, effortless dance positions.
