TURNING POINTE SERIES

summer intensive

The Turning Pointe Series is The Tallahassee Ballet’s Summer Intensive Workshop program designed to provide in-depth professional training opportunities for the experienced dancer. Faculty and staff of TTB – along with special guest artists and master teachers – provide a full range of excellent dance training in ballet, repertoire, pointe, classical variations, contemporary, hip-hop and body conditioning. Classes focus on proper alignment and posture of classical dance, with an emphasis on musicality, style and expression.

No auditions are required for the Turning Pointe Series. Dancers are expected to follow appropriate ballet class etiquette, including arriving at the studio at least 15 minutes prior to class and being fully prepared to begin at the start of class. Female dancers must wear black leotards, pink tights and proper ballet slippers and/or pointe shoes (if appropriate). Hair must be in a neatly secured style. Males must wear white/black t-shirts, black tights and black ballet slippers.
