Start working towards your dreams of pointe
Whether you're already on pointe, or if you're just starting your journey with ballet, prepare your feet and ankles for pointework. In this class you'll stretch and strengthen your feet to prepare them for pointework. You'll learn techniques to release tightness, stretch safely, and build the necessary strength in your feet for pointe. This class will help you dance en pointe safely and achieve proper placement in your pointe shoes.
It's never too early to start preparing your feet for pointe work, and all Broche Ballet students are welcome to join.
Taught by Broche Ballet Founder, Julie Gill
Julie Gill began dancing as an adult and is proof that it is never too late to live your dreams. She excelled quickly under the careful and exacting eye of Beth Kurtz in New York City, achieving pointe work within a short 2 years, and attending youth summer intensives where she danced alongside pre-professional ballet students.
She has always loved to teach and has taught many different subjects to many different audiences throughout her career. When Ms. Kurtz fell ill and was unable to continue teaching, Julie learned from her how to teach and pass along her methods.
As an adult dancer herself, she understands the differences in training adults and children, how to take adult dancers seriously, and she has the unique advantage of remembering how she figured things out which she passes on to her students.
Julie loves to break things down, solve problems, and help people understand the technique of ballet. She founded Broche Ballet so she could share the joy of ballet with all who wish to learn.
