MY MISSION

hello, i'm susanne

I’m Susanne Puerschel, and my career as a ballet dancer began when I left home at the age of 10 to join an 8 year intensive training school. From starting my professional career at Staatsoper Berlin to dancing solo and principal roles in Charleston and Portland, I had major highlights and really challenging times. Ultimately, I stopped dancing earlier than I would’ve liked, and one thing I know for sure is that my ballet career would’ve been a completely different experience if I’d had a coach. I founded POINTE TO RISE to be the guide, support and encouragement I wish I’d had when I was in the midst of my own ballet career.

There is a better way to pursue ballet at the professional level. Instead of dancers pushing beyond their body’s limits, there is a healthier way to train your body, your mind and your spirit to soar. To become the best at your craft, you must be healthy. The mentality of surviving to make a performance perfect is an old paradigm that needs to change. As athletes, dancers must thrive in order to shine and connect with their audience. This new approach, leads to fulfillment, strength and longevity. It allows you to give more of your heart and soul on stage, creating an unforgettable experience that moves your audience. And that’s the whole pointe.
