ONLINE PROGRAMMES

We have developed a number of online conditioning programmes for Ballet, Jazz and Contemporary dancers. Our programmes are currently used by The New Zealand School of Dance as well as a number of local dance schools. In 2019 we are launching Dance Pilates Online, an online subscription service provided through the interactive platform Movitae. This gives dancers and teachers the opportunity to access to all levels of our new and updated FinerPointe syllabus online, with FinerJump coming soon.

FinerPointe

FinerPointe is an innovative dance conditioning program developed by Angela Gendall and her team at Dance Pilates. The program can be used by students or teachers and is designed to assist in developing mobility, alignment, stability, endurance and weight placement for pointe work. The FinerPointe Program consists of five levels from pre-pointe to advanced, each level features a comprehensive exercise syllabus designed to break down different aspects of pointe technique. Each exercise is supported with video demonstrations, notes and variation ideas to help you, or your students, work confidently through the program.
