Our classes start from age two. That being said, at The Pointe Dance Arts, students are placed in classes that suit their skill level and not necessarily their age.

We move students to the next level based on ability, not age.

However, they generally spend a minimum of two years at each level.

We offer our dancers a recital experience like no other. With a full production that involves each student, dancers and parents always look forward to the big show.
