Pointe Evaluation Information for Parents

Please know that placing students en pointe is something that we take very seriously, for the protection of your dancer and their development. Below are the resources for parents of students who are preparing for their pointe shoe evaluation at 3-D Dance. The basis of earning pointe shoes is the ability to solidly perform all the techniques in demi-pointé before proceeding to full pointe.

How to Prepare for Auditions

Everything in life is an audition! First impressions, everyday interactions, networking, applications, interviews, even dating is like an audition. When you have a job, you audition every day to keep it. You must continue adding value to your team. Dancers are required to audition at all levels of training from studio performance groups, to local/community theater, to school teams and productions, and professional jobs.

Oh the Places You’ll Go… in the Wonderful World of Dance!

Before age 10, many dancers recognize that they love dance and will tell you they want to going to grow up to be “a dancer.” Between ages 12-14, many kids become aware that they may not grow up to be a professional dancer, but they do love dance and have a passion for it. It’s important to get these dancers into the mind set that they can turn their love of dance into a variety of future opportunities, and continue their dance training with a future goal in mind.

Because of Dance

Because of dance, kids can use their energy for good! Dancing is a highly physical activity, and kids who take dance lessons regularly can expect to notice a significant improvement in their overall physical health. Dancing can increase your child's flexibility, range of motion, physical strength and stamina, improve muscle tone, correct posture, increase balance and coordination, and improve overall cardiovascular health. Dancing is an effective form of exercise that feels like fun for kids!
