Each pointe level progressively builds on the strength and technique of the prior pointe level as dancer’s increase their experience and skill, and continue to develop their overall body awareness and control. Dancers progressively increase their ability and confidence through all pointe movements as they mature and realize the elegance, strength, and grace of the classical ballerina.
