About Us

Welcome to Firstpointe Dance & Wellness!

Our reputable and sought after dance school in the heart of Sandton, offers Ballet, dance and Pilates classes for both children and adults in Rivonia, Johannesburg.

Children’s classes:

Firstpointe offers ballet classes for children from 3 years of age and up. Our ballet classes are based on the RAD or Royal Academy of Dance ballet syllabi's namely; Pre-Primary and Primary, Grades 1 - 8 as well as vocational or majors which include Intermediate Foundation, Intermediate, Advanced Foundation and lastly, Advanced 1 & 2. Examinations through the RAD are completed annually. 


Firstpointe also offers festival, competition, concert and recital training and bi-annually we proudly present a feature production featuring both our junior and senior school students. 

Adult classes:

Firstpointe is largely unique in that we offer ballet classes for adults of all ages and dance ability backgrounds. We offer adult beginner ballet classes for those who either danced many years ago at a very young age, as well as for those who have never done ballet before and wish to learn.  

Our adult classes also include RAD ballet syllabi training including graded and vocational syllabi levels. One can select either from our weekly group class options or request private or semi-private training if preferred. 


Firstpointe offers a weekly Pilates (mat) class and also runs ballet bootcamp or fitness classes on a regular basis. 


Our teachers come highly qualified with RAD accreditation and hold police clearance certificates.  Annually Firstpointe’s teachers have to participate in numerous CPD activities held by the RAD in order to maintain their valued teaching status and accreditation. 


We so look forward to meeting you and being an integral part of your beautiful ballet journey! 


Yours in dance, 
Talia Scott-Parkin (School Principal)
