Our Mission is to train and inspire young dancers in all disciplines of dance, with a strong emphasis on ballet, the core of all forms. We provide an encouraging environment for our dancers, while developing their self confidence and technique.
Turning Pointe provides students with professional dance instruction. We encourage the recreational dancer as well as the dancer who desires a professional career. Many of our students have been accepted for training at some of the best professional schools in the country, including Joffrey Ballet, Miami City Ballet, Baltimore School of the Arts, and the Alvin Ailey School in NYC.
Our Classes are offered from ages 3 to Adult. We provide instruction in Ballet, Pointe, Variations, Partnering, Hip Hop, Jazz, Modern, Lyrical, Tap, and Acro. The younger the dancer starts at Turning Pointe, the more opportunity we have to mold the dancer’s technique.
We offer summer classes, as well as a full winter schedule. We also host workshops at the studio.
The studio has an annual Nutcracker, as well as a Spring Ballet production. We have a separate tap and jazz show as well. Past productions have included Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, and Beauty and the Beast.
Turning Pointe Dance Theatre has been serving Fort Myers for the past 20 years. We have two studios in over 2000 square feet of air conditioned space. Our floors are marley and we have a window for observation. Our annual productions provide students an opportunity to develop the art of dance and theatre for recreational fun or professional futures and scholarships.
