Each class begins with exercises at the barre where basic positions and vocabulary are practiced and mastered. The class proceeds to center floor work where the dancer executes more difficult patterns in dance training. Pointe is a positioning which the body is balanced on the extreme tip of the toe. Classes in pointe are offered only to advanced students with permission from the instructor.
