Cinderella Ballet Saturday June 3rd

En Pointe School of Ballet is excited to perform our version of the classic ballet Cinderella in two performances Saturday June 3rd at 11:00 am and 4:00 pm.  The earlier performance times allow for our youngest dancers to perform while they are at their best. 

We have a cast of talented dancers ranging from our youngest 3 year olds through our teenagers and adults.  The principal roles of Cinderella, Prince, Stepmother, Stepsisters, and the Fairy Godmother are performed by students from our Advanced Pointe, Intermediate Pointe, and Men's classes. 

Mark your calendars now and be sure to join us for a delightfully beautiful and professional performance.  With elaborate costumes and scenery, fantastic choreography and our wonderful students, this performance will be an unforgettable experience for all!

Cinderella is suitable for all ages and has magical scenes that will amaze and captivate even the little ones.  Tickets are $10.00 and can be purchased at the door or through our students' families or instructors.  The performance venue is Herriman High School.

Fall Registration 2016

Classes at En Pointe School of Ballet are back in session and only a few spots remain.  Please contact us quickly to reserve your spot or to place your dancer's name on the waiting list.

Our students are already excitedly talking about our next performance, which will be Cinderella in June 2017.  Some parts have already been announced, variations are being taught for the principal parts which will be auditioned in the coming months, and speculations about which characters each class will represent are being discussed among the dancers.  We are already buzzing with busy excitement. 

In the Fall we focus closely on technique and extra strengthening exercises.  Pointe tests are scheduled every other Thursday in the 4:00 pre-pointe class and the intermediate and advanced pointe classes are working on perfecting their Italian Fouette'.  The men's class has been attending extra classes all summer with the pointe students and their technique is improving by leaps and bounds, or should we say saut de chats and grand jete's!  Akiko has been teaching fun variations from Esmeralda and La Sylphide.  M'kenna is teaching variations from Cinderella to the pointe classes and men's class in preparation for Auditions. 

Our boys and men's program is growing and we are grateful to our male teacher Ariel Paraso for his enthusiasm and talents in instructing and motivating our male dancers.  We feel blessed to have so many and are always happy to welcome new boys and men into our program.  We are still offering a FREE month to any boys or men to try it for a month with no obligation.

We welcomed a new teacher, Breece Perry, which brings our teacher total to five and classes are going great!  Please see her Bio on the instructors link. 

Welcome to all of our new students that joined us this year!  We are enjoying getting to know each of you.  It is going to be a wonderful year!
