Guest Tiny Feet Posted April 16, 2003 Report Share Posted April 16, 2003 I have been taking ballet for about a year now. I would say I am an intermediate to advance beginner these days. I take 2 beginner classes and 2 intermediate/advance a week. In the interm/adv classes, I usually can hold my own at barre but the center eats me alive sometimes, depending who is teaching. The problem is not that I don't know what the steps are like when I first started or what the combination is calling for. My main hurdle is that I just can't do it as fast. And it can be frustrating at times and I am not sure how I can improve my speed without giving up good technique. For example, a popular combination is glissade, assemble. When I focus on technique, I can't keep up. And when I can keep up, my technique goes out the window. Is there a way to balance this? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
