Guest beckster Posted March 18, 2003 Report Share Posted March 18, 2003 I am rather depressed and annoyed to discover that I am unable to cope with anything other than beginner classes. When I started ballet I had to "sink or swim" in an intermediate-ish teens class, since adult beginner classes weren't available. This means that two years later my technique isn't all it could be because I missed out on the basics. My new teacher wants me to stay in the level 1 class. Level 2 are working towards the exam I passed last term. I know I have to get the basics right, and I know my lowest exam mark was for technique. I know my arms in second aren't always right, and that I tend to lose control of my upper back in jumps, and that I have many other faults. I know I need to work on these things, and I know should be glad to live in a place where I have the opportunity to take so many beginner classes. But it is so depressing! I'm sure it will be good for me, and I know it's the right thing to do in the long run, but I really don't want to spend the next year with sautes in first position being the climax of the class. It feels like the last two years may as well not have happened, and that all my hard work for my exam has been pointless. Bahhhhhh! Quote Link to comment
