CounterPointe, is dedicated to presenting the latest experimental, innovative, risk-taking choreography that shows a depth of investment in ballet by women dance makers working with the pointe shoe. In response to the continual neglect of representation of women ballet choreographers in major ballet companies (notably, the Royal Ballet has not commissioned a work from a female choreographer for the Opera House stage since 1999) this series offers a performances ripe with the latest curated works by women who make dances with the pointe shoe.

Investigating new and old territory the series highlights new work, opening up discussion, and creating a forum for women, young or old, emerging or established, to take risks.
