Janice Barringer

Janice Barringer was raised in Mount Dora, Florida, and received her early training in ballet, jazz, tap and acrobatics from Edith and Bill Royal in Orlando. Upon deciding to focus on ballet, she moved to New York and traveled to Europe where she studied with leading teachers in the field. Janice danced professionally for over twenty years before becoming a ballet teacher and writer. She appeared in performances honoring two United States Presidents, and was spotlighted in a public television special, Dance in America. In NYC she has taught ballet for Harkness House, Ballet Hispanico, Steps on Broadway, the Ailey School and Pace University. She has worked for numerous dance conventions and organizations including Dance Makers Inc., Music Works Unlimited, Joe Tremaine Conventions, Dance Caravan, Dance Olympus, Dance Educators of America, Dance Masters of America, and has taught and lectured in numerous private studios, universities and workshops as a free-lance instructor.

Janice has written nine cover stories and approximately 50 articles about dance for Dancer, Dance, Dance Teacher, Dance Spirit and Pointe Magazines. She is the co-author of The Pointe Book, the quintessential book on pointe shoes and pointe training, published by Princeton Book Company and respected worldwide. She has also co-authored with Thalia Mara another book on pointe work and the USA International Ballet Competition in Jackson, Mississippi, called On Pointe. The Third Edition of The Pointe Book will be published in February, 2011. She has created numerous musical CD’s for use in ballet classes and instructional DVD’s that are designed to improve the teaching skills of dance teachers. Among this collection is a graded ballet syllabus that has not only written instructions, but also six DVD’s that clearly explain the work and accompanying CD’s that have been composed especially for each exercise. All of this work has been produced by Music Works Unlimited which is based in Laguna Beach, California.
