Pointe was a quarterly, international ballet magazine. The magazine covered ballet company debuts and competition results as well as practical and trade content for dancers. The company maintains its brand and content online, while published content has been incorporated into Dance Magazine.

First published in 2000, Pointe focused on an audience of aspiring and professional dancers. Its editors included Virginia Johnson, artistic director of the Dance Theatre of Harlem, Amy Brandt, Raymond Mingst, Madeline Schrock, Cadence Neenan, and Lydia Murray.[1]

Macfadden Performing Arts Media acquired Pointe and its parent company, Lifestyle Media, Inc in 2006. The magazine was subsequently sold to Frederic M. Seegal, an investment banker with Peter J. Solomon Company, in 2016. Pointe ceased physical publication as of the Fall 2020 issue.
