Kate B Posted September 25, 2003 Report Share Posted September 25, 2003 On the mums and dads forum they are talking about whether it is right to have a particular 'spot' at the barre or in the centre, and how this is decided. It seems from this that there is competition to get to the front. At my class what infuriates me is that NO ONE wants to stand at the front! I don't care if I end up in the front, but I would prefer it if the more advanced people went at the front. I think it would be better if they did because they could help by leading. I always make some mistakes when I am in front, and on the occasions when more advanced people stand in the front I learn from them. Weird, huh? It's happened this way at a couple of places I have been to. I like the people, but I don't understand why they think the front is a bad place to be when they are very good dancers. Our teacher tries to get people to the front by saying things like, 'there's nothing so selfish as modesty,' but even this just gets the beginners to the front and I feel that the more experienced people are just setting a bad example by not leading. Grrr, it's just a bugbear of mine. Also when people take my 'spot' on the barre or squash up because they don't want to use one of the free standing barres in the middle of the room. Boo to them. Just wondered how it happens at your places? Quote Link to comment
