Welcome to our world of dance!
Under the Direction of Sheri Masiello, To The Pointe of Performing Arts
has made it's mark in the world of Dance Education in a positive way over the past 20 years.
With 3 locations (Cranston, Coventry, & North Providence), Mrs. Sheri and her staff have been able to teach, motivate, and instill a love of dance that is unsurpassed to thousands of R.I. Dancers.
Dancers that attend classes at TTP learn many important life lessons along with their dance education. TTP has grown it's positive reputation on years of experience and dedication to the enrichment of it's student's lives by fostering the grow of confidence, self-worth, dedication, teamwork, professionalism, accountability, & great work ethic.
TTP Dancers have been seen performing locally and nationally in professional dance performances at the following venues: Dunkin' Donuts Center, Twin River Casino, Warwick Mall, R.I. College, Federal Hill Parades, multiple performances in Walt Disney World in Orlando, & multiple performances on Royal Caribbean Cruise Ships.
Together, with their parents and extended family members and friends, TTP dancers have collected
over 10,000 toys that have been donated to local needy children during the Holidays each year.
The non-competitive atmosphere has played an important role in how TTP dancers learn & grow as individuals.
They find their way to excel through their own special gifts and what they bring to their classes along with the nurturing motivation of their TTP teachers. Dedication is it's own reward and TTP dancers excel without the need to compete. To The Pointe offers each dancer from beginner through advanced, the opportunity to excel
and push themselves in a positive, nurturing, professional, and organized atmosphere.
Parents enjoy the organized and professional atmosphere that is To The Pointe.
On any given day, at any TTP location, you will find happy staff members greeting their
dancers and their family members with a smile.

Our dancers practice in a professional and fun atmosphere. A specific dress code is key to promote focus and proper placement and execution of the techniques that they are learning in class.
It also helps greatly that all of our dancers wear the proper shoes and all the same to ensure uniformity at our stage performances.
Students at To The Pointe become a part of a dance family. Spending time in class together and at special events such as performing in Walt Disney World and on Cruise Ship Performances, which make for some fun memories and experiences. Lifelong friendships are made in a positive atmosphere and can be fondly looked back upon as they grow into their adulthood.
Dancers will learn in an organized atmosphere. Always studying traditional styles of dance as well as new styles that emerge from the dance community.

Parents may watch their beautiful dancer enjoy her dance class through ONE-WAY viewing windows at each of our locations and for each dance room.
Dancers at all levels- Beginner thru Advanced-are challenged and motivated to work their hardest and be their best inside and outside of the studio.
Our dancers do not participate in competitions, therefore, they focus on learning and mastering multiple dance steps and techniques, and various pieces of choreography throughout a dance season. They find that hard work is it's own reward. They also find that they learn how to self-motivate and work hard without the need to receive trophies or awards to validate their talents. A non-competitive atmosphere also cultivates an atmosphere where everyone has a chance to shine.
