Marenetha Posted February 28, 2004 Report Share Posted February 28, 2004 I think I need a different studio. The one I'm currently going to is a very nice one, but not what I'm looking for. It's a very decent recreational school, but that's not what I want to get, training-wise. I want a more serious school, and that's that. I live in the Houston area, and I've heard nice things about Ballet Center of Houston, and I'm planning to go observe classes over there. If I think it's what I'm looking for, it's only a little over half an hour away from my house, so this could work. I've got a couple of other places which I plan to look into - that's just one of them. I'm a good, but hardly extraordinary technician right now, and I have excellent musicality, but frankly, my pointework needs a LOT of work. I have a lot of ankle strength and a nice arch, but poor insteps, so I think I'm going to need to work on that. I'm trying to be as mature as possible about all of this - I'm realizing that if I want a professional dance career to be POSSIBLE, I need to get better training than I am. It's not bad, but it's not ... excellent. Houston Ballet Academy would be nice, and I was told that my arms/upper body were very nice, but my pointework was not so good ; I got my rejection letter from their SI today. Maybe next time. I'm curious as to how much I can help on my own. I'm in 8th grade - that's 14, so I have a while yet, but I think that I definitely need to get to work more on my own NOW, rather than later. I have time, but I don't have THAT much time. What else can I do, rather than find opportunities for more classes? I'm interested in looking into this - the bug has bitten badly, and I'd like to give this a shot. Can anyone help me out here, either with suggestions of what else might help, or possibly other training locations? Thank you. -Amanda Quote Link to comment
