Why are we called En Pointe Aerial Academy?
When studio owner Jen was deciding on the name for the studio, she thought long and hard about what she wanted for the studio. What did she want the name to say about her and the studio, who did she want to appeal to, what influences the studio and it’s classes, what would we represent.
Jen has a background in dance, having done so since the age of 4. She majored in classical Ballet and Ballet is still a huge part of her life, she’s still teaching it at The Academy in Ballarat.
So what does it mean? En Pointe, pronounced On Point, is a Ballet reference. To be En Pointe, is to be on your tip toes in Pointe shoes (specially made ballet shoes). Jen spent many years (and still does) dancing around in her Pointe shoes. Jens ballet history definitely influences her teaching style, her classes and the classes taught at the studio.
Students of Jens also know how she feels about floppy feet and is often heard telling them to “Point your feet” in classes.
The aerial studio also has aerial rig “points” from which the apparatus for classes are hung. So when student are training, they really are, on point.
Not to mention, Urban dictionary defines On Point as; to be perfect, satisfy, meet someones standards.
En Pointe was never going to be labelled a “pole studio”. The aerial hoop and silks classes are as important as the pole classes and so the name had to be inclusive of everything the studio offers, hence Aerial Academy.
En Pointe Aerial Academy represents where Jen has come from and where she hopes to continue going, up and up and staying En Pointe.
