Pointe is an international magazine aimed toward ballet dancers and students. Pointe covers international news on company debuts, competition results, and rising stars. Pointe also offers reviews, company profiles, a calendar of events, ballet oriented shopping guides as well as guides for ballet programs, auditions, and higher education. The website offers a blog and an online store with the option to purchase back issues. Virginia Johnson, the artistic director of Dance Theatre of Harlem, was formerly Pointe's editor-in-chief from it's creation until 2009.[1]

Macfadden Performing Arts Media acquired Pointe with the purchase of Lifestyle Media, Inc. in 2006.[2] Macfadden's dance magazines were sold to Frederic M. Seegal, an investment banker with the Peter J. Solomon Company, in 2016.[3]
