Guest rolikerri Posted August 15, 2004 Report Share Posted August 15, 2004 Hello Everyone. I'm new to this board, and I would like some advice. I am fourteen years old and have danced (ballet, tap, jazz) for six years, Pointe for less than a year. I love ballet and would like to get more serious. I have just started taking a Ballet 1 class at my high school. Most of the people are beginners but I have found that I am behind in the basic steps and arm movements for ballet, considering my length of study. The problem is, the two studios that I have danced with do not really focus on classical ballet, they are more about learning and having fun with the performances. I am signed up at my studio for 2 classes a week, one 2 hour and one 2 1/2 hour, they start this coming Monday. Like I said, I am hoping to get more serious with dance and ballet, and I'm thinking about switching studios. I don't really want to completely leave my regular studio though, maybe just take one class there and classes somewhere else too, but Im not sure if that would interfere terribly. I have one studio in mind, The High Point Ballet, they are more serious and offer better training. The question I have is, how many classes should I be taking a week? and What other things can I do to bring myself up to 'par' in ballet? Thank you so much for you responses, and if I've been unclear in any way let me know and I'll fix it. Oh, and does anyone live around Greensboro, North Carolina and know about the different studios and opportunities around here? Thanks for your help. Quote Link to comment
