Siegelife Posted January 28, 2005 Report Share Posted January 28, 2005 I'm wondering about proper barre technique in class. Hopefully that's the correct way of putting it. I'm wondering if class barre work should be repititious in each movement done in order and repeated to each side or can the movements be put into a combination that includes severeal of them and done at a quicker tempo. Like should it be you do plies, then tendus, then degages, then rounde jambs etc in order to each side doing them in a slower tempo that is more controlled in every class. Or, should it be a couple of those elements combined in a faster tempo and the class isn't as long because it doesn't take as long. I thought the more controlled method was better, at least for the younger ones, and in repetition so that you know your body is ready for the next movement working up to the bigger movements. Also, is it better to have a more prepared syllabus that remains similar class after class or have a class that seems challening because it changes all the time. I hope I did ok on trying to describe this. Quote Link to comment
