Guest Giselle83 Posted April 10, 2003 Report Share Posted April 10, 2003 Hi! I was wondering if any of you older dancers and people who have been in ballet for several years could give some advice. How do you deal with the fact that you won't ever be like those hyper flexible teenagers or that you won't ever reach a really high advaced level? I'm such a perfectionist, I'm afraid I have to quit the whole thing cause I won't ever be as good as I'd like to be... You can imagine that this avoids me enjoying ballet alot. Some years ago it was so fun, cause I wasn't aware of all missing technique my teachers just didn't talk about. Nowadays I know it all, even my teachers are still keeping quiet about them (mostly lack of rotation in difficult movements) and it bothers me so much. I try so hard to work on those little things even my teachers don't encourage into it...but am I just wasting time? should I stop worrying about things that are very very difficult and start enjoying the DANCING? Just because I won't be a pro...? Is any of you people just...sort of closing your eyes from some cruel facts? Quote Link to comment
