I'm trying to get my schedule for next school year worked out, but I need some advice.


Right now, I have ballet and modern on wednesdays, fridays and saturdays for a total of 8 to 10 hours, depending on the number of rehearsals. Only, the ballet classes in that school aren't very good. I want to add one more day of classes. I can take either a very good ballet class on mondays, or a tap and a jazz class on thursdays, and i don't know which to take. I want to keep improving ballet, but I know I also need to take jazz and tap. My goal is to dance in musicals. I know I will be able to take both in a year. I will also be able to take both jazz and tap workshops during the year and in summer, more so than ballet.


Any good advice on which classes to pick?

Take the better ballet class. The more ballet technique you have, the better you will be in everything, except perhaps tap :offtopic: But since you can take other tap and jazz classes through the year and more next year, then get the good ballet this year.

Even though Ms. Leigh already re-plyed I thought I could add something. Take the ballet! The more ballet you have the more cast-able! Simply for the fact you have ballet training on a resume! So, take the ballet. (the technique helps too! :thumbsup: )

Bumping this old thread


So school is off for 2 months. (Whoopie) so that means more ballet time!




Monday- None


Tuesday - 4.15 to 5.15 RAD Grade 6

6.45 to 8.30pm Open Class en pointe throughout (sometimes flats)


Wednesday-5.30 to 7pm RAD Grade 6


Thursday - 1pm to 2pm Pilates

6 to 7.30pm Open Class (Teacher made it a condition to allow me to attend if I only attend it on alt weeks)


Friday- None


Saturday- 10.30am to 12pm RAD Intermediate

12pm to 1.30pm RAD Grade 6


Sunday- None


Okay I just realised that I am taking too many RAD classes. Grade 6 exam is at the end of the month hence more classes. I only plan to take Intermediate next year with the new syllabus. RAD is like the King of Ballet here and I can count within my 10 fingers how many studios offer open classes here.....
