You'll find a really knowledgeable bunch here - so much great information. Lots of ballet addicts too!

I am from Portland and attending the June and first August Session. Where do you dance?

I currently take classes in Corvallis at Regional School of Ballet . I use to dance down in Eugene when the Eugene Ballet Company was still located there (they merged with another company awhile back). Do you dance with OBT?
I'm thinking about the one of the August sessions, not sure which one yet. Nice to see another Oregon dancer!

It was so exciting to find out about both Richmond and this group in my search for summer dance workshops. I talked my S.O.'s ear off about it last night.
Now I'm having second thoughts. These three thoughts keep whizzing around in my head. Am I too old? Am I too injured? Am I too inexperienced? I've only been taking ballet for about 1 year (2x week), although I did take it when much much younger. I'm mid-30's and have a recurrent achilles problem....

Welcome to the forum!
I don't know about two of your questions, but I do know about the age one. I'm going to Richmond in the beginnng of August and I'm 35 yrs old. I have some lower back issues and am currently in therapy to make sure I have a good time at camp.
I take class 2x/wk but also do weight training and aerobics to increase my strength and endurance.
Yes, I talked my S.O.'s ear off about it too. ;)

I haven't taken any of the adult classes at OBT due to conflict in my sch. I did many years ago, then they dropped their adult program for awhile.
I take at Renoux and have taken other classes at a handful of other studios in town. We are lucky, in that there are several studios that focus on the adult dancer.
I believe I'm much older than you, 50's. I have gone to richmond and other workshops Heidi has done for 5 yrs. I really recommend them.

Don't say older...just wiser! You guessed it... I'm 28. I've heard good things about Renoux before. Maybe I should wander up to Portland someday for a class... It would be interesting just to go to a different school for a drop in. I think I will be going to the 3rd session in Richmond, so I won't be there at the same time as you. That would have been fun. Anyways, nice to "meet" you.
