En Pointe Dance Academy aims to foster a culture of respect ensuring a positive experience for both the teacher and the students. They do this by promoting a sense of belonging, open and honest communication, constructive feedback, and recognising the value each student brings to, not just their class, but the Academy as a whole. “All our teachers are RAD (Royal Academy of Dance) registered and provide a nurturing and supportive learning environment, empowering and guiding students both young and old to learn to the best of their ability”, Academy Principal Cindy Gordon said. “En Pointe is a modern and forward looking academy where the traditions of the past meet the needs of today, with the aim being to capture the instinctive joy of movement and freedom of expression that everyone possess.” With classes for 3-year-olds through to adults, and three purpose built ballet studios, En Pointe Dance Academy offers something for everyone.
