POINTE

Pointe technique, an extension of classical Ballet, encompasses both the mechanical and artistic aspects of pointe work.  In particular, it is concerned with body alignment, placement of the feet, and the manner in which a dancer transitions to and from en pointe.  A dancer is said to have good or proper technique when in conformance with the best practices of both Classical Ballet & pointe technique, which in turn are generally referred to as proper technique.
