Susan's thoughts on her Saturday Pointe Class
The Saturday Pointe Class at Art’s Ed takes place following the Beginner Improver Ballet Class and is taken by Mark Kimmett and as usual, Mark brings his own personal style of teaching to the class. The class is attended mostly by ladies (although we have been joined by a male dancer on a few occasions) of very varying ages and as it is a drop- in the class size fluctuates. The class is fun and as we are already warmed up from the previous class we get straight to work at the barre with exercises such as rises on demi- pointe and then full pointe progressing to pas de bourrée. There is usually some centre work as well where we are encouraged by Mark to ‘present ourselves’. We are all given individual advice and support from Mark and I feel we are all making progress and I personally look forward to the day when I will be able to dance on pointe without the need of the barre!
