kellylynn Posted February 27, 2005 Report Share Posted February 27, 2005 This is really just a little vent. I've really made a commitment to take class three times per week. However, it's a little impossible with all the "vacation breaks" that the studios take over here. The reality is that these dance studios are mostly geared towards the little ones and the studios follow a school calendar. The hoiday break in december wasn't enough for them. They had to take a whole week at the end of january for their personal "sememster break," and now there is a week off for february break, and looking forward on their hoiliday calendar there is a spring break. All these breaks are a week long. Also, every time the pubilc schools are closed they close. So every little hoilday (martin luther king, presidents day, jewish holidays) the studios will be closed. Last week sometime, there was like two little flakes of snow in the morning and the schools closed. Of course by noon it was business as usual....but of course the studios closed down due to "incliment weather" and I couldn't even attend my six pm class! So im really just jonesing for some ballet. And now I find out that when the studios re-open tomorrow there will be more snow! I'm sorry I just have no patentice for this considering that I have a corporate job and we have to come to work no matter what. I am trying to improve and advance and once I feel confident about things all the schools shut down like once a month! Whats the deal????? I know i can travel down to the city where the "real" adult ballet classes are like steps...that place is always open. I also can do a barre at home along with a couple of lame ballet class dvds. It's just not the same. I'm just disappointed that I can't attend class regularly due to all these closings and breaks. Just another challenge of being an "adult" ballet student!
