Progressing onto pointe is one of the biggest rites of passage a young dancer faces, it is often very exciting. However, it is also very challenging, and the excitement of that shiny new pair of shoes is often quickly soured with the onset of pain and blisters. But it does not have to be this way! Given a slow and carful preparation, along with a detailed assessment of the dancer before pointe work is introduced, it can be one of the most amazing times, and open up a whole new world of possibilities in dance.

‘The Perfect Pointe System’ takes the science of dance medicine out of the text book and into the classroom! Enjoy the combination of anatomical and scientific research in a clear and easy-to-use format to transform your teaching of pointe work to young students.
The original hard copy of The Perfect Pointe System is currently out of stock as Lisa is in the process of updating and reformatting the program. This will hopefully be launched mid next year.

You will then have the option of upgrading to the new version for a minimal fee when it has been released.
