Level 4 ballet introduces Pointe work. Level 4 dancers learn the proper methods of caring for their feet and pointe shoes. These methods will ensure that each dancer has a positive and enhancing experience en pointe. Dancers begin to learn the proper technique associated with pointe work. This technique includes proper stance, alignment, elevation, etc. Dancers continue their pre-pointe work to increase ankle and foot strength. Along with learning the basics of pointe work, the dancer is encouraged to bridge the gap between technique and artistry, thus creating a harmony between the two. Each dancer will begin to master classical ballet technique as well as continue working on stage presence.
