Pointe

Pointe is the part of classical ballet technique in which a ballet dancer supports all body weight on the tips of fully extended feet within pointe shoes. A dancer is said to be en pointe when the dancer's body is supported in this manner, and a fully extended vertical foot is said to be en pointe when touching the floor, even when not bearing weight. Pointe work is performed while wearing pointe shoes, which have structural reinforcing to distribute the dancer's weight load throughout the foot, therefore reducing the weight on the toes enough for the dancer to support all body weight on fully vertical feet.

 

 

Duration: 1 1/2 hours

Modern

Modern dance encourages dancers to use their emotions and moods to design their own steps and routines. Whereas classical ballet dancers strive to be light and airy on their feet, modern dancers often use their body weight to enhance movement. Modern dancers reject the classical ballet stance of an upright, erect body, often opting instead for deliberate falls to the floor.

Many dance competitions throughout the nation judge dancers on their modern dancing ability and dancers take this opportunity to use their dancing to express their innermost emotions and get closer to their inner-selves.
