Yes, there will be pointe classes for adult dancers who are already experienced with pointe. We will not have pointe classes for absolute beginners on pointe.

All dancers should attend all the classes listed on the schedule. There are no “limits”, especially since we will have a performance at the end. It will be important to attend all the classes if possible.

All classes except for warm-up class before the performance will be held separately: students will be among students, adults will be among adults.
