Philosophy/Belief Statement:

Turning Pointe:
Recognizes the need for excellent technical training in Classical Ballet along with an introduction to other dance forms.
Recognizes the need to nurture the dancers' faith, encouraging them to grow in confidence and responsibility as they pursue the art of dance.

Recognizes the need to reclaim the gift of dance for the church.

At Turning Pointe we strive to create an atmosphere in which each student can develop skills in dance through proper technique in Classical Ballet, Pointe, Partnering, Contemporary, Tap, Jazz and Hip Hop. From a modest beginning using a small classroom in a local church, Turning Pointe now has over 375 students from Ottawa, Kent and Allegan Counties. Turning Pointe provides a place where students of differing abilities, ethnic backgrounds, and economic circumstances are encouraged to dance. The school seeks to provide a well-rounded program where dancers are guided through a curriculum designed to enhance both physical skill and spiritual growth.

History:

Beginning in 1999 with 23 students in a local church, Turning Pointe School of Dance has grown to be one of Holland's largest dance schools with a satellite school in Hudsonville, MI.
