Ballet Talk for Dancers

introduction


Recommended Posts

Hi there,

 

After having pm-ed with Alexandra, we agreed that I could post on this board as well, because I feel kind of in between two groups. I feel comfortable on the Teens Board, but also here (maybe because I also have a job and I won't go pro with ballet). So I thought, a little introduction may be helpful.

 

I'm 19, live in the Netherlands and practised ballet since I was 5. I practise RAD-system and just took my Advanced 1.

 

I finished school and now do my traineeship with Martinair at Schiphol. I work as an employee Passenger Handling (also called Ground stewardess). I love the job, I love the people and I love the things I have to do and last, but not least, I love the airport). I hope that I can stay after my traineeship!!

 

Although I have changing times every week, I want to keep up with my ballet. I hope to get the result of my exam soon and if it is positive, I will continue with Advanced 2, otherwise, I'll take Advanced 1 again.

Welcome home, Skip, and please feel free to post to the YD 16-22 AND the Adult boards, as we set up the elder YD forum exactly with this kind of crossover in mind. With you, it seems to be working perfectly. :D

Hi Skip, and welcome!

 

There are a few of us here that have made the transition from YD to Adult and have posted on both. It does work well, and you'll find you make even more friends.

 

:D

Welcome, Skip! I took my very first ballet classes in Holland a long, long time ago. I'm pretty sure it was RAD because of the pictures I've seen of the tunics we wore for classes. Glad you have joined us.

Hello Skip, and welcome. It's great that you've found a job you love, I hope you can stay!

 

It's natural and great that people make the transition from YD16-22 to Adult Dance Students, but it makes me wonder - where do those young dancers move to, who don't continue as adult dance students but as professional dancers? Is there a dancer forum on the board? (The one I'm thinking of should probably be private and confidential, like the teen buddy board, to avoid fans hoarding for gossip? :blushing:)

Welcome Skip! There are quite a few RAD folks on this board, but most of us are a long way behind you :blushing: ! I'll be happy if I ever get started on Grade 7 and intermediate :o .

Skippy, who sometimes posts here, is another person who flies. She is an air stewardess (or whatever the correct term is) - so I hope she sees you are here!

the airport authority is one client, but others include...KLM, Martinair, Air China, Singapore Airlines, Air Canada, Lufthansa, American, United, America West, West jet...and many many more.

That could explain why mic and I get along so well - he used to fly 'em, I used to fix 'em when I was an Aircraft Maintenance Specialist for the world's largest unscheduled airline - the US Air Force. :)

:wink: Hi Skip, welcome to the site its always nice to have someone else join us on here. As Beckster mentioned earlier i work for an airline too. I work for British Airways as an air stewardess (cabin crew, trolley dolly, tart with a cart or my favourite dragon with a wagon but NOT flight attendant) and regulary fly in and out of Schiphol airport, it would be great to bump into you there. If i get a nightstop there i will have to let you know via this site or by pm.

 

Hope you enjoy this site as much as i do,

 

Skippy :innocent:

hi skippy!

 

it would be nice to meet someone from balletalert in real (that's also addressed to miriam....since you're also kind of close by)

 

just look for the ladies in red with the funny heads on (passengers already asked me if i was from a russian airline :P i don't think i look russian :o:D !!!)

 

i like your naming for the cabin crew....never heard of all those english nicknames :) !!

 

by the way, i just got my advanced 1 result.....i'm moving on to advanced 2, i made it with 9 points over the minimum...
