Pathway to Pointe: Silver League is an intermediate ballet class with a focus toward getting into pointe shoes. It will be in the same structure as a regular ballet class, just more advanced material. If a student has potential to get into pointe shoes they need to take at least two classes a week so this class is offered only to those that will continue with their regular class as well as this new one. This class is by invite only so the dancers that are ready to advance forward won’t be held back by beginners. The class will tend to be more difficult going from beginning ballet to intermediate ballet. Silver League is for those that want to start getting ready for pointe shoes. When they are ready for their pointe shoes they will graduate into the Gold League. This gold league will be by invitation only as well!
This class will only be available to dancers 8+ taking ballet. No dancer will be put in point shoes unless they are old enough, meaning their growth plate in their feet has closed. No one will be on point shoes until they pass Silver League and get invited to the Gold League. This depends greatly on the students effort in class and commitment to practice! The only way to get to Gold League is through the Pathway to Pointe Silver League!
