I read another thread a little while ago, and you mentioned that it hurts your center work if you do two barres in one day. Somedays, I work with a private teacher, and we do a barre, and later that day i have regular ballet class. Is this bad for me?

If there's a good break inbetween, there should be no harm in the schedule you mention. Where did I say it was bad to do two barres in one day? That doesn't sound like me! :D

It could have been me, come to think of it! Ms. Leigh says "three barres in a day is just too much barre," and she's right. I tend to say "two classes at your level back-to-back is not a good idea." If you take one that's well below your level first and use it as a warmup for the more difficult class soon after, that's not bad. Take one in the morning, one in the afternoon, might as well be on different days, so that's fine.

No big yip. I'd do the classical first, then any adjuncts after, but that's just me. I can't think of a good reason to advise that order other than my own instincts.
