Welcome to BalletTalk for Dancers x qban dancer x. I am sure you will find very useful information from the various forums as well as a nice group of dancers who have been through similar experiences such as yours.


I am not too familiar with "technique" class outside of a ballet class. Often a technique class is a ballet class in which separates it from pointe work, variations, men's work etc. Different schools handle the beginning boys differently from one another. Also perhaps there could be a beginning Adult class that you might start in so you would not feel so out of place. Ballet is a very rewarding pursuit. I am sure if you would discuss it with your teacher there may be a solution that could be found. Enjoy! :)


BTW...please no computer lingo here. We do have ballet students from across the globe reading our site. With English as a second language it could be difficult to understand some of today's computer talk. Thank you for understanding. :)

Hi, qban dancer, and welcome to Ballet Talk for Dancers here at Ballet Alert! Online! :)


You're fortunate in being in Miami, which has a long tradition of superior dancing and a good number of schools offering professional training for all ages. You should shop around to find a school in which you will feel comfortable. There are teen "converts" to ballet in many metro areas, and you shouldn't have too long a search to find a place offering high-level training and you won't be Gulliver among the Lilliputians.
