dmcclure Posted April 15, 2004 Report Share Posted April 15, 2004 I have read a TON of posts for the advanced dancer and scheduling, but have a few questions about the under 12 dancer. I noticed a few things in Ms. Leigh's posts that give me some direction, but decided to just ask for those of us who have our first dd in this group. DD takes 2 tech classes a week, one jazz class and one "challenge" class (mixed ages, she is youngest, all center work and across the floor stuff). She is 11 and does pre-pointe in her tech classes, but school is very firm about no pointe shoes until 12 at the earliest. Is this enough? I sometimes think only the "super-wonderful-very-advanced-prodigy" information is discusses for this "advanced beginner" level (or are we beginner-intermediate?) We have a nice studio for a town our size. We have girls go to ABT and other top SI programs, so I'm comfortable with the level of instruction, just curious about how she fits in with other programs. Thanks in advance. Quote Link to comment
