Jaana Heino Posted September 12, 2003 Report Share Posted September 12, 2003 Grace mentions in Grace for Grown-ups that one of the problems adult beginners have is "generally, keeping the knees straight en demi-pointe". This is one of my constant mistakes - if one class passes without the teacher saying "Jaana, the knees!" I'll probably either die of joy or be convinced that the teacher has stopped talking to me - so I am naturally interested in the topic. So, I would like to ask if this really is one of the problems a greater proportion of adult beginners than child beginners have, and if so, if anyone has any idea why? And are there problems children typically have, but adults have less? I post on Cross Talk, since I think Ms Leigh and Mr Johnson don't currently teach adults, and I would like feedback from other teachers too, and didn't want to post on Teachers, not being one. And comments from younger people taking classes with adults are also welcome, too. Please move the post if this is not a good forum. Quote Link to comment
