hart Posted March 8, 2004 Report Share Posted March 8, 2004 This summer, I am going to have some difficulty making classes at my regular school because the school moves the classes up an hour and half which tends to conflict with my work schedule. However, If I want, I have a unique opportunity to take a summer intensive at a local fine arts college (also because of my work schedule). I am contemplating several options and would like feedback, especially in light of the fact that I will have had 1 year of ballet training at that time. I currently take ballet 3-5 days/week and take random pilates and yoga classes, as time permits. I want the course of action that is most realistic while allowing me to improve as much as possible. Option 1: I could take 3 1/2 hours a day, 4 days a week for 6 weeks (basically two extended ballet classes) at the college for $490 (the money is relevant as it relates to the third option - If I did this, no Adult Dance Camp for me). One class would be within my skill level, and the other class would probably be pushing the envelope a bit. My only concern is that this may be too much for me, given the fact that I will have only been dancing for 1 year. Also, I will not be able to go to my regular school. Option 2: I could take an hour and 45 minute class/day, 4 days a week for six weeks at the college for $288. My biggest concern with this is ending up in a class covering the stuff I have already learned. While I see huge benefits in working on the fundamentals ALL THE TIME, I also want to build on the foundation I am establishing this year during this summer. If I did this, I would probably take a fifth class at another school, if not more. Option 3: Go to the Adult Dance Camp (probably in June), spend more money than I have but have a great deal of fun, and then take random classes in the city as my schedule allows.
