Pointe Dance Academy is the Virgin Islands' only accredited ballet school. Co-directors Heidi Wright and Sonja Dickerson-Faust have advanced certificates and degrees from the International Society of Teachers of Dance, Cecchetti USA and United Kingdom Alliance of Teachers of Dance in ballet. They both also hold certification in Pilates mat, allegro and studio from Polestar and Pilates Elder, Lolita San Miguel.
Offering classes for all ages and levels, Pointe Dance Academy enrolls students from age 3 for creative movement classes, through to advanced and professional levels. The curriculum contains open classes in the Russian Imperial method and offers open and syllabi classes in the Cecchetti method. Most years, the academy holds international Cecchetti exams for the students in both the CUSA and ISTD syllabi, inviting international examiners to the island to examine the students.
Performances are held on a semi-annual basis, allowing students to demonstrate their learned skills to an audience of family, friends and the community. Pointe Dance Academy regularly puts on a professional production of The Nutcracker Suite Ballet for the holidays as well as a Spring Gala in which advanced students also exhibit their own choreography.
